ISAM is more experimental soundscapes than music - Tobin himself has stated that. His earlier stuff was a lot different. Seems like ISAM live is more multimedia art installation than a musical performance. That's what I'm going into it expecting.
Yeah the music is emotionally impotent but it will be a sight to see.
I'm excited about the halloween party that the tents will be Friday the 13th if you know what I mean: Death Grips, Horrors, black angels, Atari Teenage Riot, Mazzy Star, Amon Tobin in the sahara.... if it pans out that way.
So my plan will be to watch EITS from the beer garden at sun down, fill myself with beers during Pulp, and then make my way over to the party.
On the lineup he is booked as just Amon Tobin not Amon Tobin ISAM: Live. Curiosity or concerns with this?
ISAM live, just an updated one starting at Coachella
From the website
Amon Tobin's ISAM Live tour last year was one of epic proportions. It set a standard for things to come with both world wide mainstream acclaim and local Twitter trending topics at every turn.
After a Spring stop at the Coachella Festival, a new look ISAM Live is hitting the road this fall throughout US & Canada. Many of the shows on the last run sold out months in advance so here's a heads up for those of you previously left out in the cold.
On amontobin.com we are pleased to offer exclusive North American ticket presale bundles with the newly announced 6 x 10" 7xCD 2xDVD box set of rare and unreleased material including the ISAM Live concert DVD.
Amon Tobin fans, be sure to check out Two Fingers on Saturday in the Do-Lab at 8:30- he is one half of the duo.

I'm predicting epic battles over front row spots for Amon Tobin.
I'd actually advise against it. For the full ISAM effect you actually want to be a little bit back. Too close and the video projections are too... video-projection-y. Kind of like how you don't want to sit in the front row of a movie theater... it's hard to explain. Shoot for 1/4 to 1/3 of the way back for optimal effect.
