I was looking forward to seeing them again. My friends and I got to meet Keith Murray (he went to high school with one of my friends...what up Cooper City) and he was the nicest guy. For Shame!! For Shame!!

Statement from the link above, which is pretty funny but hey next year is always good.
We’re officially not doing Coachella this year. As I said, the promoters jumped the gun in including us on their materials earlier this week — assuming, maybe, that a band of our relatively meager cache wouldn’t consider turning down an offer to play the finest U.S. music festival. But they underestimate both our laziness and our cowardice. Since — unless something goes terribly awry — we’ll be right in the middle of recording our next record (tentatively titled “Berries! Is!! Good, Yummm!!! Hey?”) when Coachella rolls ’round, we’re concerned that we’ll be totally out of shape, unable to put on a great live show, and that getting into shape would majorly interrupt the recording effort. Basically, we’re not getting on stage in Indio without super-ripped abs deflecting the desert light in all sorts of directions, like a prism, and right now our bellies look like sun-bleached dead catfish, and by April they’ll look even more like that, eerily so.
But we make this vow: Next year! Coachella! Abs agleam!
My guess is that Friday stays about the same as it is now with very few adds. It's the first time they've done a Friday and they know people will strugge to get there. I think the shows will start around 4 or 5pm. They don't want bands to playing to empty tents at noon.
I disagree. Friday will start at the same time as Saturday and Sunday.
They are greaaaat. I mean, look at Chris's response to not playing in Coachella! He's so clever and intelligent! Very cute. I really hope they will play next year; they were practically one of the 2 reasons I'm going on Friday.
What is all this crap about Friday needing another headliner? Bjork, Interpol, JAMC, Arctic Monkeys, Jarvis, Sonic Youth, and DJ Shadow????? If anything they should add a few more filler bands throughout the day to be lined up properly with Saturday and Sunday but the last thing Friday needs is another major act...try Saturday instead.
I completely agree with you...Saturday is the weakest (at least in the headliner area).
"Yeah chicks go nuts for that... the male camel toe."
"Yea yea! The camel tail."
Ok, I have officially said those three bands 20 times at least.
I am totally with you on Isis or Mastodon! Although I think Isis would be more appropriate for Coachella because of their psychedelic stoner vibe. But I would rather have some much needed heavier rock/metal like Mastodon. There is not a Wolfmother type band on this year's lineup.
Kyuss would make me happy also.
