As many are probably aware Modest Mouse did release some stuff after “Good News For People Who Like Bad News,” but its hit “Ocean Breathes” that first got the attention of fans even those closest to the stage. Despite some feedback and inaudible banter the veteran band commanded the stage throughout its tracks. And of someone can explain why there was a random chant of “hakuna matata” we’d really appreciate it.
Phoenix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Blur & The Stone Roses will headline the highly anticipated Coachella festival lineup, Goldenvoice announced late Thursday.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Postal Service and Modest Mouse are also slated to perform.
Of Monsters and Men, Franz Ferdinand and Moby will take the stages during the identical festival weekends, April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
A second round of tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29.
The announcement followed weeks of leaks and rumored reports of bands that could perform at the popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
In the most hotly reported rumor, the legendary Rolling Stones were expected to headline after the festival briefly appeared on the band’s mobile app. RollingStone Magazine reported Jan. 18 that the band would not appear, citing “a source close to the band.”
The band does not appear on the lineup.
