Huge reunion was leaked to me today. They are going to kick off their reunion tour at Coachella.
Here is the background story. I was in the office of a co-worker in an industry that is so far distanced from music and entertainment that it isn't even funny. There was some Stagecoach memorabilia in the office, and so I made some comment like, "Oh, do you go to Stagecoach?"
Them: "Yes, every year."
Me: "Oh, I go to Coachella every year."
Them: "So do I! I've been every year because of [INSERT BUSINESS CONNECTION WITH GOLDENVOICE.] My favorite acts have been Paul McCartney and Madonna."
BLAH BLAH BLAH BUSINESS
Them (as I am leaving the door): "But you'll never guess who they have for next year."
I get all excited thinking it's a headliner. It's not, but I'm guessing second liner. They say "BLAHBLAHBLAH".
It's pretty big.
I'm not going to ruin anything for anybody, because I do think it will be a great left field surprise, but I am going to leave vague enough clues that when the act ends up on the poster, I can bump this thread and be all like, "Told you I knew what I was talking about." Because I'm an ass.
Band, not solo singer
At least one member has significant name recognition outside of the band
Has not been mentioned so far in this thread
No way Bonnaroo or Lolla will book it
Have fun. And now I will insert a word in this thread so I can search for it and bump it when January comes out: Rapscallion.
See you then.
Considering that travelfan had Culture Club on his pool, there's one of the reunions.
I'd say, Slowdive, The Stone Roses, Desaparecidos, and Texas is the Reason. Although, I think, Texas is the Reason will probably do a couple of shows in LA in venues like the Fonda, or the Glasshouse.
I saw both of TITR's New York shows, they were spectacular. I've gotta say though, a Coachella set would be a letdown - they'd play at 4 pm to a 3/4-empty Gobi. Remember how lifeless Sunny Day Real Estate's 2010 set was? It'd be like that, x1,000. The polo fields just ain't for the emos.
Ace of Base
Doors of the 21st Century
Snake River Conspiracy
Temper Tantrum (dj Oliver Chesler)
A Perfect Circle
the Beach Boys (50th anniversary lineup)
Set to Destroy
Mad Marge & the Stonecutters
American Head Charge
My Bloody Valentine->Godspeed You! Black Emperor->Tool, main stage

please post the best TitR song, don't think I ever checked em out
They only released one album (Do You Know Who You Are?), and an EP (Texas Is The Reason) before calling it quits. Check out the first song off the album called "Johnny On The Spot." You'll get an idea of their sound.
Yeah, I'm sure Blake wouldn't be interested. I would also love to see Jets to Brazil. Orange Rhyming Dictionary is still one of my favorite albums. But I'm also sure that's not gonna happen either. boo.
