A dream come true. Preach to the children, Father Dulli.
They were fantastic at the Fonda last year, can't wait to see them again.
I did not expect this.
Hands down my all time favorite band.
So happy to have yet another chance to see them!
This was the most pleasant surprise for me on the line-up. Playing together again so soon after their 2012 reunion gigs, I can't help but think they might be cooking up something new to release - thoughts?
Best surprise on the lineup by far. Has me excited that we might hear some new music at Coachella or, even better, get the new album sometime soon.
Them against Outkast or the Knife would be heavenly. I want to see them how I saw grinderman last year, small but fucking attentive fans.
They were phenomenal when I saw them at ACL in 2012, then I caught their aftershow and they fucking killed it. I was hoping they'd be there last year, but I'm glad they're still chugging along. Is it too much to ask to have them play on the same stage before The Replacements? That would be killer.
I imagine Afghan Whigs go on in the middle of Outkasts set...
Cooler than a polar bears toenails.
I would anticipate them being more mid-day/early evening.
We'll look around all giddy before they go on only to see everyone else not giving a shit. It's their loss.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
What are their best albums?
I want to get into this band before seeing them in April. I know I'll regret it if i don't.
They fucking killed it at Lolla a few years ago.
Gentlemen was my first exposure to them (I vividly recall being at First Avenue's Sunday Night Dance party... would have been back in 93... they played the video for the title track and I was hooked...). And while I love their other albums, I really think it's their most solid work. It's a work that really works great as an album too. So I'd recommend trying to listen to the whole thing start to finish. A lot of great tunes. From the title track, to Debonair, Fountain & Fairfax, My Curse to what I feel is the greatest gift cocaine gave the world, Now You Know.
Congregation is my personal favorite.
I think Black Love is their best Album.I like to echo that they were fucking great at the Fonda last year.I dont understand why friday is so stack.

And just to make sure there is zero consensus, I'll throw in that my favorite is, hands-down, 1965. A perfect pop album, as far as I'm concerned - and while it might not be the most representative LP of theirs, I'd say it's probably the easiest to get into.
I mean... the bottom line is that you can't go wrong with any of those four albums. I'd say the only album that isn't really required listening is "Up In It". I don't think it was really until Congregation that they really started to come into their own. And they're not likely to play anything off of it (they played one song from the album at the second Fonda show, but it's doubtful we'll see a repeat of that at Coachella)
New album soon?
So these guys are pretty much my new favorite band.
Friday is gonna be fucking amazing.
