brap: It's usually more fun to make up band names than to have to sit through them anyway.  I only want to be a musician so I can rename the band at every gig.  I was actually in a band that did this so we could get the same people to show up at our gigs on consecutive nights.



Dead Monkeys are to split up again, according to their manager, Lefty Goldblatt. They've been in the business now ten years, nine as other groups. Originally the Dead Salmon, they became for a while, Trout. Then Fried Trout, then Poached Trout In A White Wine Sauce, and finally, Herring. Splitting up for nearly a month, they re-formed as Red Herring, which became Dead Herring for a while, and then Dead Loss, which reflected the current state of the group. Splitting up again to get their heads together, they reformed a fortnight later as Heads Together, a tight little name which lasted them through a difficult period when their drummer was suspected of suffering from death. It turned out to be only a rumor and they became Dead Together, then Dead Gear, which lead to Dead Donkeys, Lead Donkeys, and the inevitable split up. After nearly ten days, they reformed again as Sole Manier, then Dead Sole, Rock Cod, Turbot, Haddock, White Baith, the Places, Fish, Bream, Mackerel, Salmon, Poached Salmon, Poached Salmon In A White Wine Sauce, Salmon-monia, and Helen Shapiro. This last name, their favorite, had to be dropped following an injunction and they split up again. When they reformed after a recordbreaking two days, they ditched the fishy references and became Dead Monkeys, a name which they stuck with for the rest of their careers. Now, a fortnight later, they've finally split up.

monoski: keepitcherry: Coachella is just a music festival for rich posers and celebrities to put flowers in their hair and dress like faux hippies for the weekend.

Some may actually be hippies


If that chick is a hippy then she has alopecia of the vagina.

My brother's old band used to be named Tonight's Special Guest.  It was a fun way to mess with people.  Then they signed on to be Vokab Kompany's live band.  He no longer plays in the group due to some personal falling-outs, but it was a fun run while it lasted.   He's featured playing guitar on an epic live jam at the Lightning in a Bottle festival a few years back, but most of VK's studio stuff doesn't feature live players (part of the reason for the falling out).

Anyway...

A band my old band used to play with a lot up in DC was called "To Be Determined". TBD played everywhere it seemed.


Still can't go wrong with "Ladies' Night" or "Free Beer".

TheJoe03: 555-FILK: It all seems force-fed to them and they just gobble it up.

Huh? I'd say generations before us were force fed, not us. That's why all these old folks complain about how music sucks, while they depend on FM radio to find out about new music. You guys still rely on the big music industry to tell you what to like, while we use the internet and it's splintered my generation into a bunch of different scenes and we lack any kind of major unifying generational band, because unlike boomers and Gen X, we aren't force fed our music from the radio and MTV. You really got it all backwards, and you're misunderstanding is obvious since this is the first time you've heard of Coachella.


But they never announced this Coachella thing on Classic 98.5 or Party Jams 101.3.  Are you sure it's real?

That is stunningly accurate.  Particular fondness for "People adjusting their drugs in the security line."   If you ever need to score just look at the ground/garbage can outside the security line.  Ground drugs get you higher!

Rapmaster2000: I'd love to see Kurt Vile, but he's much more suited to a dark bar


Dark bars are great, you can easily pretend you're the only one who likes performer

I'd rather pretend to like a fake band than admit that I paid money to see Gaslight Anthem, the Lumineers, Vampire Weekend, James Blake, or Franz Ferdinand.

I'd love to see Kurt Vile, but he's much more suited to a dark bar than out in the daylight.  It would ruin the mood.  The Oh Sees are cool as well if you like straight up rock.

Also, Red Hot Chili Peppers?  Does anyone want to see fiftysomethings play pop radio tunes?
