Noah and the Whale leading into Black Mountain is up against Chromeo and their shitty main stage timeslot. This is not cool. Head Like a Kite, who I've heard is good but haven't listened to yet, also conflicts. This could be my biggest scheduling issue. I'm sad to say that I might actually have to skip Chromeo and their sexy daytime dance party this year :-(... decisions!!!
It may sound crazy, but my reasoning is I've seen Chromeo a few times and I haven't seen the others. I know I'll have plenty of opportunity to see Black Mountain again as I live in Vancouver, but Chromeo also comes to town twice a year. As for HLaK, I need to listen to them before I make that call.
In other news, it looks like I'm going to miss the WKD chant. I'll be preoccupied in the Banana/Bigfoot area. The only way I was going to be around for the grand heckle was if there were no conflicts, but alas it was not meant to be.
why are you complaining? you get 90 minutes of FLAMING FUCKING LIPS... and at least 30 minutes of Yeasayer. sounds like a win-win.
*sunrise, tightrope, ambling alp and 2080 will all happen in the second half of their set. *
Yeah I know but why couldn't yeasayer have been playing during wilco or something. Literally my favorite bands, in no specific order, are Yeasayer, Flaming Lips and Modest Mouse and I wanted full sets of each!
I made a rough version of the schedule on excel. Let me know if there are any errors. Original credit goes to doumak.
Thank you so much for this!!
I printed it out last night at work and spent a good half hour highlighting everyone I want to see. If everything goes according to my intricate highlighting plan, I will be catching 23 full sets, 10 partial sets and room for up to 8 more bands to fit in! (of course, I expect varying states of mind and moods, my festival companions, and festival glitches to cause changes here and there)
I was surprised how well everything seemed to flow, with the only huge conflict becoming Chromeo / Black Mountain / Head Like a Kite. I'll have a chance to catch Black Mountain at Live at Squamish. I've really been digging HLaK's album but I don't wanna miss the sexy dance party.... Chromeo might end up winning that battle.
