There was another update recently that maybe many of you saw, but for completeness I'll list what we have here:

Sorry for the verticalness of this post, but it's only going to get worse. Also... RADIOHEADZ!!!11 Interestingly, no mention of No Doubt yet. They seemed to be the 2 biggest rumors that have been going around for a while now.
Looks like Monklish has updated his list of Coachella predictions:

I completely forgot about that thread. I think I had it filed away as another "David Lynch Appreciation Thread."
I guess I'll add that Paglicci Pizza is my favorite pizza of all time. I have had pizza of similar, and maybe even higher caliber, but Pag's is consistent and dependable. It's normally quite expensive, however. Still worth it at full fare in my opinion, but with this deal you'll be laughing. haHA!
So I emailed a guy who was offering 100 bucks for 1 M83 ticket and told him he could have my extra one for face value. At first he didn't believe me then he insisted he give me 50 so I could buy myself a couple of beers at the show. I am not sure if that counts as scalping or not.
Then there was this couple offering 300 for a pair. This is getting into Roger Waters territory here. I mean, I want to see this show but 300 bucks? That's just insane.
No matter what it's scalping because even if he agrees to face value you'll be getting a huge amount of karma points for hooking a brother up so really you can't win.

Today's Google Offer for Seattle is $10 for $20 worth of delicious Pagliacci! I just picked up a couple for next time I'm down there. www.google.com/offers/home#!details/4bc7fd6bd3feb311/1L62ESQ7PFORYR5V
I don't know if many of you are into the whole "Groupon" thing, but this is a pretty good deal if you spend any time in the area. Google Offers just launched recently, and so far they've had some gooduns.
The only Mother Mother I've (knowingly) listened to is about half of their "O My Heart" album and I enjoy it. It reminds me of The Pixies with a bit of the New Pornos thrown in there. I love The Pixies and like some of what the New Pornos have come up with, so their sound definitely appeals to me. I don't know anything about their radio play or even if they have other albums; I only discovered them this week. They definitely give the impression of putting on a sweet live show, and I'm glad to hear that many of you can back that up.
I imagine concerts around the holidays, unless specifically billed as a holiday performance, are a lot harder to sell out. People are travelling and with family and what not. I think I'll hold off on buying tickets until I know if I'll be in town or not.
I have not listened to this M83 before but I hear it is goot.
I just passed on presale Mother Mother tickets today and I think I'm already regretting it. The show is at one of the best venues in town, and it's a band that I'm getting more and more excited about, but I don't know if I'll be in town when it happens (Dec. 30th.) Can anyone offer insight on whether or not I should just pull the trigger and figure out where I'll be later?
You got that right. I dug myself a hole early and it took my all too long to resurface.
If I go this year I'll definitely be there for the duration, but my attendance is going to depend on the line-up more than it ever has. I'm already heading to Coachella for over a week this year and simply don't know if I can do both.
I was really hoping they'd go back to the tried and true 3-day festival format. Four days had me run ragged last year, but that was largely my own fault. The re-entry thing is a small victory and, while I do think they'll follow through with it, like many of you I don't expect to take advantage.
The mau5 just released a new track and it's better than anything he's put out in the past couple of years. A lot of people get hung up on his party songs and bangers, but tracks like these are what I really love about him and are what make him an amazing producer. Definitely got in touch with his roots on this one. Fucking awesome atmospheric tune...
