I think I should be higher on the bill for Friday, but you all can say you knew me when....

The news over here are Los Ángeles Azules. I've seen them twice and I do hope they play more songs than just 3 of their most famous ones. The band is huge and I had a lot of fun. Booze and having fun with friends helped.

I can safely say I don't own a single album from *any* of these acts. I don't know if I should feel out of touch and old or have decent musical taste and hip.

I'm in to Chvrches and Blood Orange. Tame Impala have some good songs. That's about it.

I guess I'm so old that I've never heard of one of the headliners before. Should I have heard of Tame Impala before? I know it's not cool but I like quite a few Weezer songs but other than that there is nothing that would make me go to this
Obviously I'm not their target audience though

Tame Impala are reasonably popular. I don't think it's unreasonable for someone to have not heard of them though. I am a little surprised that they are a headliner.

I laughed when the email landed this morning. I used to eagerly wait for the lineup to drop in hope that the lineup would be wow enough to make the journey. It was for a few years, but the I got older and it got younger (it seems) and year after year the lineup became more and more like of meaningless names. This year's take the prize.

For several years, I think NorCal (and LV?) benefitted from bands touring up and down the coast between the festival's twin weekend, but now I can't say I even give a fuck about that...since I, too, and too old to know who most of the acts are.

Best I head back to my old man troll cave...

Rock is dead. Punk is dead. Indie has turned mostly into folk/pop, but even that has died (from banjo poisoning).

There's still excellent music out there, but it's not in the genres anyone older than 25 is used to. Plus it's always difficult to know what's pop-bullshit and what's the next big underground cool art thing. It's not like Jane's Addiction was ever really that popular to mainstream audiences, even at the heights of Lollapalooza '91. I mean relatively speaking... they need Pearl Jam numbers, and aren't going to get that with Pearl Jam.

I love this thread every year..."where old, out of touch people are confused about what kids like"

Who cares?

Surprised tame is headlining....I see about the average number of "now" bands scatterted through out the line up as always....haven't been to a music venue with more then a few thousand capacity in at least 20 years...coachella is as relevant as an article about teen fashion to me :tiphat:

Hypes post is dead on....when the old heads here think of the 80's and 90's it's obscure punk bands, janes, ministry, x, Lord's of the new church, Smith's...in reality it was Micheal Jackson, Prince, Madonna, guns and roses, bon Jovi and metallica that would have been our Coachellas because it's the mass appeal...would I have gone to that? Fuck no lol

I'm suprised by Tame Impala as a headliner too. I thought their peak was a few years ago. I saw them at the Bestival Festival in Toronto a couple of years ago...they were good. As for the rest of the lineup, there a few that interest me like US. Girls, Janelle Monae, Childish Gambino,CHVRCHES, and a couple of others, but that's about it.
