Seeing as they play Seattle June 1st I wouldn't count on it. Bummer too, because their Coachella webstream was pretty great.
If your reasoning for not counting on it is that they are playing a show within a few days of the fest at a place close to the Gorge, your reasoning doesn't hold water. There are at least four sail bands playing in Portland that same week and weekend, and imho having a sail worthy band in the neighborhood during the fest makes it at least a 50-50 shot on being a late add.
I really hope we're not about to have this argument in the year of 2016.
So it looks like you can get VIP box tickets for Monday for $70. Those include entry for the day and a seat in that fenced off area just above the floor I believe. Friday and Saturday are $90. Sunday is $200 which kind of ruins my potential plan to just buy all 4 days in box tickets for roughly the same price.
Does anyone know if those box tickets come with any other perks like a separate line to get in the venue or maybe drink service?
I did this one year (Wilco) and it was great. I know there are attendants in there but I don't think they get your drinks. If I remember correctly there is a private bar in there though so the wait is short.
after watching mr west dig himself deeper and deeper into a hole and make more of the world hate him all I can say is his new material that ive listened to really got me. ultralight beam made me melt. hopefully he comes to his senses and releases a real version of the album because apparently what he released already isnt the true full album..
Eh, what does the real version even mean anymore? He will tinker with it but what you're seeing is the album. Well, everything after wolves is bonus tracks or something. Album is great but it is clearly (and intentionally) a mess
My metal head buddy wants to drive to see the Cannibal Corpse/Obituary/Cryptopsy/Abysmal Dawn tour. Since Animal Collectives tour lands right next to it, I am going to take advantage. I have to make my friend expand his horizons a little since he is one of the only friends I have that still goes to shows regularly. I am back and forth between Seattle and Portland.
Animal Collective 3/4 Nepchune Cannibal Corpse 3/5 El Corazon
Cannibal Corpse 3/3 Hawthorne Theater Animal Collective 3/5 Roseland Theater
Does anybody want to debate on the quality of the venues to help me decide? I wasn't really impressed with the Roseland last time I went, and have heard the Hawthorne was horrible, but has improved.
Neptune is the only one of those that is a good venue. The others are pretty much equally disappointing.
