Hell they went against Green Day at Lollapalooza in 2010 and drew a nice crowd. They also put on an amazing show that weekend.
I'm definitely excited to see them this year. I'm sure they'll be headlining a LOT of festivals this year with Coachella and Primavera leading the way. Look at Kings of Leon after headlining Glastonbury, they went on to headline everything the next year everywhere else.
My only disappointment with the lineup is the clusterfuck on Friday and Saturday and the weak Sunday. Especially weak Sunday healiner
The band has stated in interviews that the upcoming album (Bankrupt!) is going to be a departure from the pop sounds of Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, and they are trying to create something more experimental.
