Thread: I skipped Dre and Snoop, come at me...

  1. #1

    Default I skipped Dre and Snoop, come at me...

    Yep, that was me, walking my self back to camp when they started... And I have zero regrets.

    Firstly: I do not hate rap music... I honestly believe with how diverse the genre is that it's nearly impossible to say "I hate Rap" I like a lot of it. From Kanye, to Danny Brown, to Shad, Shabazz Palaces, YC the Cynic, Hodgy and Earl, Das Racist, and yeah, I like Snoop too. (there's a clue). So I have no beef with (good) rap.

    Secondly: I totally get why people wanted to see them. It's a bucket list thing, groups to see before you're too old or they're dead or whatever. You have every right to like who you want to.

    Personally, I didn't care that they were headlining from the time lineups came out. My payoff was going to see Justice, At the Drive In, and the Hives, the last of which was the first concert I ever went to)... Snoop was an afterthought, and I literally could give two craps about modern Dre. I knew there'd probably be some sweet guest stars, and I was at Coachella last year for Kanye's massive celebration of what will wind up being one of the best albums of the next decade, but I just couldn't work up the energy to care about Snoop and Dre. Holographic Tupac seemed dumb and fanservicey, but I get that was kinda the point.

    It felt like it was a celebration of what Rap used to be, rather than how amazing it is currently. Seriously, 50Cent? Come on man.

    besides, the line at the camp showers was super short, and I could hear the set from camp anyway.

    why would anyone care if you didn't see this set?
    why would you think anyone cares?

    I skipped it too. I've got nothing against Dre or Snoop, they are highly respected in their genre and that's cool. But I am a boring white guy, I don't "get" the hip-hop and rap thing, so I just had no interest. Also not interested in seeing bands just for some bucket list bullshit, especially not on Sunday when I'm exhausted and ready to just go the hell home. I guess the set was awesome for people who like this kind of music though so I'll call that a win for Coachella!

    This thread pissed me off because I care about what random people on the internet think about concerts I didn't attend.

    All I can say is you missed a truly legendary set. The only problem I have with your post is #2. I don't look at bands as a "bucket list", I love Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg so I wanna see Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. If anything I just feel bad for you.

    And FYI the Tupac thing wasn't hoaky or dumb. It was actually quite a site to see a crowd react the way we did. It was amazing. Sorry you missed it.

    Nah, I wanted to:

    a) go fishing for them
    b) see if I could spark some discourse with a fairly well-phrased but confrontational opinion

    As for what I did? there were plenty of last night parties going on at the camp, as well as a game of oversized beer pong with paint buckets and softballs. Rest assured, a good time was had.

    "Watch out we have a bad ass" missed Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg's performance "over here." Here have a: "I'm a bad ass" sticker and wear it like a champ.

    srsly.

    nostalgia acts play festicals all of the time. I don't need to list them all. if some hood ass motherfucker started a thread about how roger waters was stupid because it was a celebration of what prog rock used to be, i'd tell him to go fuck himself. the only reason anyone is aknowleding you at all is because you started some goon-ass thread.

    You should start a blog along the lines of "Reviews of shows I didn't go to and didn't care to go to". It'd be riveting.

    Or "Showers I have taken."
