I can already picture Thomas trying to convince Guy to tour.
Anyway, how legit is this?
I'm sure the next time you and the Homem-Christo family are taking a ski vacation in the Tarentaise Valley, you and Paul and Guy will share a hearty guffaw over the whole scenario. "Can you believe these plebes thought they might actually have inside information on when the mighty Daft Punk will tour?" you'll say. "As if these foolish Americans would ever have such information! We reserve these details only for our French Brothers!" Guy will respond. Paul will return from the bar with some apres-ski cocktails, and the three of you will laugh knowingly, ensconsed in thick lambswool sweaters and a deep sense of self-superiority, as you gaze out over the majestic Saint-Bon from your view in a suite at Courchevel.
Why is that so hard to fathom? Bands do that regularly with Bonnaroo, and PJ are certainly not such premadonnas that they wouldn't be willing to play Friday night and then have almost three days to get to Amsterdam. I'm not calling them a lock, but you can't rule them out based on those dates.
Quick questions... who the hell goes to bonnaroo to hear "vocalists"? Lady Gaga having a castle on the stage? Are we talking about the same fest?
Only a few of the artists on this list have a shot at headlining and Beyoncé nor Adele are either of them for Christ sake. The only two I could see being the actual headliners would be Elton and JT, although I don't even think JT could pull it off without help from a Jay-Z type.
Jul 7: Steely Dan / Steve Winwood (Mansfield MA) Jul 16: Hall & Oates / Sharon Jones (Mansfield MA) Jul 17: Paul McCartney (Boston) Jul 22-24: Newport Folk Aug 19: Ghostland Observatory (Philly) Aug 20: Prophets of Rage (Camden NJ) Sept 24: Copenhagen Beer Celebration (Boston) Oct 20: Die Antwoord (Boston)
OK, cool. If that's true, I guess that means that Coachella will be announced within the first week or two of January since Hangout is announcing in early Jan, too. I think last year Coacheller announced at the end of the month. That'll be cool, but that's a different approach for Hangout. Maybe they're trying to associate themselves with Coach since it's the hippest and the first and all the way on the west coast. I doubt too many people attend both. Maybe getting some weekend headlines that say Coachella and Hangout announce lineups would do Hangout some good.
I appreciate it, but that video is a mainstay for recognizing post that are "special", in a different way. If I was the first person to ever use it, sure. But i am but an echo. Glad you enjoyed it. :-)
First of all I'm glad we aren't getting certain acts. Like lordes, kanye , Fleetwood mac, arcade fire , pearl jam , NiN , I love most of the bands but I've either seen them recently or I don't think I want to see them at roo.
Lorde will probably be there. Kanye hasn't been ruled out, nor has Fleetwood Mac.
First. Nothing pissed me off more than when bonnaroo started acknowledging the impossible wish lists that people were posting and obviously most were 14-18 years old potentially going to their first roo and waiting and hoping not knowing how seriously we take awaiting this magical place all year.
With that being said the remaining candidates are looking at are rather solid.
"All these 18 year old kids with their impossible wish lists are stupid. And now, here's a thread to discuss my own impossible wish list."
A lot of these bands are very quite capable of being on the same lineup due to their purgatory status of semi headliners specifically at roo. I'm thinking something similar to 2009. I'm just saying. It probably isn't gonna happen but it could.
I don't have a clue what the first sentence of this means. Or the second sentence,for that matter.
I would like to discuss what everyones opinions are on the matter. Only because I love talking about this truly illustrious weekend that most and many of us talk about 361 days out of the year that we aren't there. And because I think I could easily be right. Not specifically the bands listed above this paragraph. But I think most could easily be combinations at Roo 14.
There are many threads to discuss this concept. Yet you chose to make your own thread, for your own little list. How fascinating.
I am a hipster, so i pretty much listen to outkast and wu tang exclusively. And you know only after they have had huge record sales because that's what we hipsters are totally into. in fact, i was thinking about strapping an old school boombox to the back of my fixed gear bicycle and blast "the whole world" and "Sorry miss jackson" as i twirl my dali stache and complain about how bad the foam art on my artisinal coffee is.
So yes i would love a d12 reunion next year as well.. with the proof hologram.
It's gotta be a lot harder to get laid by all the Festival News Groupies when there are like a dozen other dudes stealing your schtick. I'd have to imagine the amount of tail Phi is pulling from FestivalSnob has decreased dramatically of late. I'm sure that FestiveOwl is just swimming in it after calling OutKast like 4 months early. Meanwhile, here's Johnny-Come-Lately "Exclusiveroo," who just saw all the adoring fans lining up to bless the feet of these sweet providers of sugary festival scoopz, and couldn't help himself but try and get a taste of the nectar.
Hold fast, lads - these gentlemen are no doubt living in a virtual sexual utopia, where their every whim is catered to by throngs of nubile, scantily clad vixens. "Oh FestivalSnob," they coo, "can you pleeeease tell me who is headlining Bonnaroo this year? I pwomise I've been a vewwwy good girl," in an overly exaggerated little girl voice complemented with a full lip pout. A nod of the head, a gleam of the eye, and a whispered "my sources say ELTON JOHN" later, and thus begins the debauchery.
Meanwhile, across town, FestiveOwl is holding court in his plush harem, filled with overstuffed pillows and plush, circular couches, tending to his flock admidst the everpresent aroma of Axe and empty Mountain Dew cannisters. As he hunches over the icy-blue glow of his monitor, a scowl crosses his face. FestivalSnob has ruled out Bassnectar? But how can that be? I confirmed him months ago, his thoughts race, as his mind struggles to extricate itself from the Cheetos-induced haze under which he has been wallowing lo these many days. "FestiveOwl?" a wispy waif of a female inquires. "Is everything okay?" The scowl vanishes. He rises to his feet, and turns to face the harem. "Everything is fine, my dears," he intones as he tosses aside his dressing gown. "Have you I told you all that Kanye West is confirmed for Bonnaroo?"
I said SOME, not everyone. That comes up as a reason amongst SOME people, I'm trying to give this person the other side of the story.
When Kanye turned his YeezusDestroyer3.0's laser vision on the crowd, I knew that I had made the wrong choice in waiting for his set. I believed he had come to perform in the name of Lunar-Earth peace, but I let my love for his music shroud my judgement. Not only had he shown his violent tendencies when he was briefly President of New North America, but his recent destruction of the InterSOLAR Peace Convoy because, "The only peace can be made through YEEZUS", should have betrayed his true intentions.
I'll never forget that day, the performance of 2088. We lost many humans and their protohuman counterparts. "Jesus Walks" was a pretty legit way to close the set, though.
So if I'm understanding this thread correctly, Coachella can be summed up like this: everyone is fake, no one is really passionate about anything other than their own ambition, people will be nice to you only if they want something from you or otherwise will trample you under their boot, so everyone just walks around with the cold glassy eyes of methamphetamine/steroid dual addicts, their perfect bodies rippling with muscles, all plastic surgeried to the point where they are beyond beautiful but barely human anymore. As their outsides have been improved by technology and science, so have their insides died, to the point where they can no longer connect with other human beings, having lost all sense of community, and they no longer truly understand music or art. The reason they shove to get to the front is the one tiny piece of humanity left in them is screaming for a connection, and if they can only get way up to the front of the stage then maybe the closeness will enable them to feel again. To feel anything again.
Whereas at Bonnaroo everyone has shed their sense of self and achieved perfect oneness. How can I be concerned with myself, with my position at the concert, when my brothers and sisters standing next to me also need to see and hear? Rather then fight we can all join hands, my heart becomes your heart, your mind becomes my mind, because after all aren't we all in this together? Are we not all family born of Gaia, our one true mother? Are we not experiencing the purity together, the face of Horned God smiling with the thrill of the hunt, our unbridled sexuality not a thing to be ashamed of? Lets take back the forbidden fruit, and shed our garments! Love is light and light is love! For Earth is heaven, and always has been. We just couldn't see it until now!
I had my sunglasses stole from me at Caveman. I was sitting down by the rail waiting for it to start and a girl came and sat down next to me. I took off my glasses and put them right next to my right leg. People scooted over down the rail so everyone started moving over. I got up to move and the moment I turned around the glasses were gone. I asked her if she took them and immediately denied. So unless a black hole opened and took them, she stole them from me.
Our neighbors had a big party section going on in pod 2. Saturday morning they came over and told everyone that someone had come through while they were all passed out and stole their money and hash and to lock everything up.
In 09 my buddy had his wallet stolen, we recovered it. In 13 I'm sitting on the truck bed when some guy comes into our neighbors camp opens the ice chest. I ask what he doing and he says he looking for beer, if he had come up to me and asked I would have given him one we had plenty. Instead I told him to eff off.
Last year tho- there was an instance where some girls from my Groop were in centeroo and some guy stole a phone right out of their hand and ran away. The girl was just sitting in the grass sending a text and the guy literally just grabbed it and sprinted off. I was blown away when I heard this.
Someone left a nice telescope out for several days and I heard on Monday morning that someone had stoled it. It is one thing to trust people, another thing to tempt people. That thing had to be quite a few bucks.
Opening a cover letter with "Hello there" is an interesting choice.
Edit: Oh man I posted this way too early, this guy continues to explain he was a Lobsterman aboard the vessel The Crabby Marilyn in Middle School and lists the band he started in High School under Work Experience.
Edit #2: This guy is the gift that keeps on giving, he has a 3 page resume that includes how he was approached by some bass player of a band i've never heard of at a Guitar Center and asked to be his Guitar tech, a list of several mountains he has climbed, and the line "Returned cash found on bus to bus driver."
Speaking your mind often gets you a negative reaction. Kanye does it for money, mine is simply a more personal matter of, I'm going to speak my mind because its mine, and who I am. I'm one of those people you either love or hate. Kanye is one also, so I guess we have that in common.
