The Postal Service played their first show last night and there's some videos making their way up. It looks like it could be a pretty solid show this time around. They've got a live drummer which really makes it more interesting for me.
Ben is drumming on a few of the live tracks, just like he did their first time around. His role in DCfC often overshadows how talented of a musician he is. Last time I saw them, Ben drummed during an extended outro of "We Looked Like Giants," and it was great!
VW is going to be the set of the weekend. Calling it. Did anyone skip MGMT and watch the New Pornos play their best ever show on the Bigfoot to a packed and incredibly enthusiastic crowd? That's what this will be.
That set is one of my top 5 favorite Sasquatch sets. Even from a weekend that included brain-melting sets from Massive Attack and LCD Soundsystem, The New Pornographers' 2010 sets stands as one of the best.
The Map link still displays last year's map. It's interesting they wouldn't update the map to include new stage names the same day they "formally" announce the new stage names and the schedule. Makes me wonder if something will change...
Other than the Stones and Primal Scream (!!!!), kind of a meh lineup. Funny to see how low Phoenix are....
Kind of a slap in the face to Coachella - you may have The Stone Roses and blur (who have already played Glastonbury 4 times), but we were able to book The Rolling Stones, and one of your headliners is on our fifth stage (presumably against Mumford & Sons).
I don't know what you guys are talking about, that Glastonbury lineup is stacked. And yeah, the Arctic Monkeys have been headlining festivals in England since like their second album. It doesn't make any sense but it's nothing new. I love that they're technically listed before The Stones which is just batshit insane.
I think they're listed in that order because Arctic Monkeys will headline Friday, The Rolling Stones Saturday, and Mumford & Sons Sunday.
Those dates are also way to conveniently wrapped around Coachella's dates. No reason for a late add, but that would be so freakin awesome.
That's what I've been thinking since Fallon announced that Prince would tour the west coast three weeks ago. Prince is open on Saturday (and Sunday) of both weekends and would slide perfectly into that headlining slot above the XX and Phoenix.
10. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 9. Preservation Hall Jazz Band 8. The Tallest Man On Earth 7. Dirty Projectors 6. Divine Fits 5. Built to Spill 4. Vampire Weekend 3. Elvis Costello & the Imposters 2. The Postal Service 1. Andrew Bird
Fail my list if you choose, but I don't have much exposure to Sigur Rós or Primus. I intend on seeing both sets, and they might end up on my Top 10 Sets of the Festival list, but neither act is one of my most anticipated acts.
I am so in love with them right now. I was listening to my giant Sasquatch playlist on random last night and their songs kept being the ones that I was like "oh shit yes!". For the record, the complete opposite reaction kept happening with The Presets. Yuck, sorry Pea.
I have never enjoyed The Presets on record, but I loved the live performance of theirs I saw this last October and I look forward to seeing them again! So, even if you don't like any of their albums, still check out their live set!
