AC/DC and Steely Dan? Why not just get a Don Henley project on the poster so my dad can bring his R/V, his fourth wife, and make a day out of the damn thing?
Haim will go on after ms mr..
I would think Chromeo has the bigger draw but granted I'm not hip
Voted Best Black Board Member 2010
I think Chromeo is getting way under-repped on this board. They're a deceptively well-known band, reaching out past the indie kids into the more party / fratty scene. And people will be curious to see BB because it's composed of Danger Mouse and James Mercer, but their's is a sound that isn't going to get everyone psyched to visit.
What's up with the lack of Sahara artists on Friday? That can't be right. It's almost always open before noon. One or two filler DJs will either be added or Glitch Mob is in Sahara.
Edit: originally said Sunday. Dumb.

There's no way The Cult is closing
It would seem when I ask people if they know Broken Bells, the average response I get is, "Yeah, I know that one song." On top of that, most people I've asked didn't even know Broken Bells is comprised of James Mercer and Dangermouse, whereas everyone and their mom knows Chromeo.

I still don't get why broken bells are a subheadliner.

I think last.fm is a pretty good indicator of popularity. Broken Bells has 747k listeners and Chromeo has 608k.
Broken Bell's new album didn't do so well so I think they have a slight edge but not by much. If Chromeo's new album was being released before Coachella, they would have the edge, but I think it's not due until May.
