fireatwill said on the 5th Jan, 2010

pretty happy, except for the girl talk/passion pit clash. they were my two top reasons for going!

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 5th Jan, 2010

Wasn't Sydney 2 meant to have some super mega-chocolate fudge secret suprise?

I can live with this timetable.
See Mastodon,Decemberists,run over to see The Horrors even though I'll have seen them the night before,sit through Devendra since I'm already there and then watch Muse's retarded theatrics from afar.

Beege

Beege said on the 5th Jan, 2010

seeing miami horror, tame impala, karnivool, mastodon, kasabian, passion pit, the decemberists, the horrors, dizzee rascal (last 20 minutes), lily allen, the mars volta, powderfinger and muse!

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 5th Jan, 2010

Have fun attempting that.

muzbuz said on the 5th Jan, 2010

Just checked out Perth's...pretty well set out, I'd be happy if I was going...although, Mastoden and Decemberists having 45 and 40 minute sets respectively is a bit lame.

mtcodonnell

mtcodonnell said on the 5th Jan, 2010

why do perth get a 2 hour and 20 min muse set

Fear Factory/Peaches double is the best thing in that entire timetable

They should do a duet as a segue.

dankobiaka

dankobiaka said on the 6th Jan, 2010

Pretty good set times I think.

Kasabian versus Temper Trap only real clash for me.

Dexter Ramone

Dexter Ramone said on the 6th Jan, 2010

Am I the only one that thinks that no clashes on this isn't indicative of a well set out timetable, rather one with no depth?

deanoss

deanoss said on the 6th Jan, 2010

It can go both ways, and is indeed a little bit of both.
Im happy I get to see pretty much all the bands I wanted to see, except the fact that I was going to have to sit through Powderfinger ruined any chance I had of watching Muse... but theyll be back later on in the year for some proper shows...

shane2493

shane2493 said on the 6th Jan, 2010

happy with the timetable. can't wait til the big day out trains rolls into sydney

AndyLedHead

AndyLedHead said on the 6th Jan, 2010

the horrors clashing with midnight juggernauts really annoyed me.
girl talk and passion pit was pretty bad too.

if only i was fucking 18, i would be able to go to a longer than 45 minute gig.

miami horror, bluejuice, tame impala, mastodon (bit of a lunch break too), kasabian, (go to the boiler room for) girl talk, the horrors, dizzee rascal (30 minutes or less, meh), lily allen or devendra banhart before calvin harris, then simian mobile disco, powderfinger for a little, then muse, then groove armada for awesome fun!

spintheblackcircle

spintheblackcircle said on the 6th Jan, 2010



i think i have to agree with you on that.

normally i find myself having to plan ahead and make difficult decisions on who i want to see. this usually ends with me missing out on a lot of local bands. this time around i can see plenty of time to hang out in the bar with mates.

LOL have you heard of the "D Barrier" before? and did you consider this before starting to make wild accusations as to who youll be seeing at the BDO?

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 6th Jan, 2010



Last time I checked, the D Barrier wasn't a 40 foot high concrete wall.

It's possible to stand behind it and see over it.

yeah but its hardly worth watching a band from that far away now is it? Unless you're a U2 fan and used to standing 100m away from the band

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 6th Jan, 2010

Yeah, but I would always choose to stand behind the D and watch a band I wanted to see than go to another stage to be closer to a band I didn't want to see.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 6th Jan, 2010

Timetable is good, i don't mind.
Only disappointments is that there isnt a band i particularly wanted to see at the end of the night, and that i will have to sprint from Rise Against to Lily Allen and will have a shit spot, but luckily am attending the sideshow with the bonuses of Calvin and Dizzee and Miami Horror.

DZ, Bluejuice, Karnivool, Mastodon/Kisschasy, Magic Dirt, Temper Trap, Eskimo Joe, then a bit of Hilltop Hoods and Decemberists and lunch etc etc before getting my spot for Rise Against, Lily Allen, Ladyhawke, Grinspoon/Powderfinger, and then finishing with either Muse or Groove Armada. Gonna be sweeeeeeeet.

andy_chalmers_102

andy_chalmers_102 said on the 6th Jan, 2010

I have a lot more empty time to kill this year than previous years. Looks like my day will go something like:

Lisa Mitchell
Bluejuice
Kisschasy
45 minute break
The Temper Trap or The Middle East depending on my mood
Passion Pit
90 minute break
Rise Against
half of Lily Allen
The Mars Volta
Ladyhawke (although I may decide to instead tolerate Powderfinger to get a good spot for Muse)
Muse
Groove Armada

deanoss

Eskimo Joe, Grinspoon/Powderfinger. Gonna be sweeeeeeeet.

LOL I thought you were talking about bands you particularly didn't want to see, then I realised you were actually serious about seeing these bands....

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 6th Jan, 2010

I said bands i particularly didnt want to see at the end of the night, that includes powderfinger, muse, and groove armada...
There is nothing else on that interests me at the time of Eskimo Joe.
The 'gonna be sweeeet' comment refers to the day in general.

In conclusion, you aren't the troll you thought you were.

spintheblackcircle

spintheblackcircle said on the 6th Jan, 2010



have you ever been to a festival bigger than bdo? go to glastobury or reading or roskilde and see if you can get within 50m of the stage just before a band starts. its next to impossible.

how far from the stage is the d barrier? maybe 35m at the most. i have only ever been inside the d once since its inception and that was for neil young last year. i have seen plenty of bands outside of it and never had a problem with being that far back. the only time i ever noticed the sound to be ordinary was when the killers played. to say its not worth watching a band from outside the d is a ridiculous comment to make.

Joe Smiggens

Joe Smiggens said on the 6th Jan, 2010

oh and the D Barrier is a piece of shit and the one reason i don't go to big day outs anymore

The Dean

The Dean said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Did anyone else notice Bangs is playing lilyworld @ 6!!! (syd fri at least) There is no way i will be able to get the gf to come along to that.. Will get to see him at sandcastles on sat tho.

Also something on BDO website makes me think the 100th bday special event is just a fireworks show on both nights...

kinksta

kinksta said on the 7th Jan, 2010

well ive got my day sorted, miami horror, tame impala, kasabian, passion pit, dizzee, lily, mars volta then muse should be a kick arse day!

Spark Iris

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 7th Jan, 2010

I'm really annoyed at the lack of anything else to do when Muse are on. I don't want to bloody see Grinspoon again.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Have you seen Muse before?

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 7th Jan, 2010

No, and I don't want to - it'll almost definitely be predominantly Revelations and Resistance; the former of which I'm not big on and the latter I openly despise.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 7th Jan, 2010

They are still a superb live band.

In the absence of other stuff you want to see, it would be worth checking out for the spectacle value alone.

BTIazza

Tis true. They are freak muso's man.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 7th Jan, 2010

I'm considering it, but I was really hoping for something like Girl Talk to be on at the same time as Muse - what's up with him being on at 4 anyways?

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Sydney Friday here. If I get there early enough (which I won't):

Seekae
Tame Impala
Decoder Ring
Passion Pit
The Decemberists
The Horrors
Mars Volta
Muse
Groove Armada

Wouldn't mind seeing Sasha and I don't particularly like Muse. But I don't think Sasha will be suited to the Boiler Room and Muse has the spectacle factor (plus I like some of their stuff).

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 7th Jan, 2010

More people need to see Itch-e and Scratch-e.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 7th Jan, 2010



I second this.
Rise Against closing the green stage would've been just perfect.
Inevitably i will end up at muse due to the people i'm going with, and i'm sure they probs won't be all that bad, but its also the raging teeny bopper kids who are really digging 'super masive black hole' right now after twilight that i don't want to put up with.

dankobiaka

dankobiaka said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Muse are an excellent live band - definitely worth checking out!

Although there will surely be numerous songs from their latest album, I expect their set to also be filled with a variety of songs from their back catalogue. That has been the case all three times I've seen them.

AndyLedHead

AndyLedHead said on the 7th Jan, 2010

and, no i have never been to a big day out and have little knowledge of how it all works

is the d barrier only for the main stages? because if so i wouldnt mind, the horrors and girl talk are my priorities, and if i can see them both fine, then i'm good.

so yeah, could someone please enlighten me?

ps: cheers braveheart, and i do agree.

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Anyone know what the go is with the Decemberists live set?

I know they have tended to play Hazards of Love in full lately and then play a bunch of songs in a 5 or 6 song encore. They only have 50 mins at BDO though. Actually I think I just answered my own question.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 7th Jan, 2010

They won't play THoL at BDO.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Isn't this the first time they've been to Australia?

Probably a greatest hits set with only "The Rake's Song" thrown in from HoL.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 7th Jan, 2010

Probably two songs from each of the first four albums.

It has always been the way when i have seen them in the past as well. Unfortunately they seem to be very heavy on the last 2 albums for this tour.

They played last night in Korea and i dont know the setlist for that, but this was the previous show they played in December:

01. Mk Ultra
02. Interlude
03. Hysteria
04. Resistance
05. Supermassive Black Hole
06. Unnatural Selection
07. United States Of Eurasia
08. Uprising
09. Starlight
10. Time Is Running Out
11. Plug In Baby
12. Man with a Harmonica + Knights Of Cydonia

They are leaving some of their best songs out. I hope they give us better than that.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 8th Jan, 2010

That's a really disappointing setlist. ONE song from Origin?

deanoss

deanoss said on the 8th Jan, 2010

Fear Factory setlist on the other hand looks mighty...

1. Shock
2. Edgecrusher
3. Smasher/Devourer
4. Martyr
5. Scapegoat
6. Crash Test
7. Linchpin
8. Powershifter
9. Resurrection
10. Demanufacture
11. Self Bias Resistor
12. Zero Signal
13. Flashpoint
14. H-K (Hunter Killer)
15. Pisschrist
16. Replica

spintheblackcircle

spintheblackcircle said on the 8th Jan, 2010



thats a terrible setlist. where's new born, bliss, citizen erased, stockholm syndrome, butterflies & hurricanes, sunburn, muscle museum or cave? surely they could find room to fit at least 2 or 3 of those into the set somewhere.

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 8th Jan, 2010

If i see Muse i want to hear that 'Undisclosed Desires' track that is being played a million times a day on the radio, i actually quite like that tune.

The Great Monkey War

The Great Monkey War said on the 8th Jan, 2010

That Muse setlist blows dick, supermassively.

My favourite Muse tracks are Thoughts of a Dying Atheist, Falling Away With You and Map of the Problematique.

Just because they're not full songs doesn't mean they shouldn't be included in the set list. I'm sure if you saw the set list the band was actually reading off during the gig, it would also have those listed.

Set list looks pretty good to me. Glad to see "Feeling Good" in there.

Hmmm, a day like today in Sydney would be mighty sweaty out at Homebush.

JackT

JackT said on the 25th Jan, 2010

My thoughts on Saturday, for what they're not worth. Arriving at 6 was a good move, given how much it had cooled down. Went high into the pavilion and saw the crowd explode for 'Bonkers', was quite a sight.

Nice to be alleviated from review duties this year, so enjoyed an evening of wandering. Standing on a carpet of crushed beer cans and cups for Devendra Banhart was probably the highlight (so few people there!), and his drummer was a real thrill to watch. Devendra was well aware everyone wanted to have sex with him. Guilty admission: as soon as the set finished, Jet started on the stage next door and I actually thought the first song sounded good. Then it got comfortingly awful.

Simian Mobile Disco DJed to a mostly empty Boiler Room (so much better as DJs than live); it was a reminder of how the Boiler Room used to feel when you were 16/17. For all the criticism of the Big Day Out, the production is still very good (at the front of the Boiler Room at least). SMD finished with Inner City’s ‘Big Fun’ – amazing, haha. Sasha also very good – three cheers for the sound system.

That wood-chopping arena was so great for Shapeshifter a few years back, and again on Saturday for Dead Prez. Dead Prez! Only a couple of hundred people there – the place exploded for ‘Hip Hop’. Hearing that live is something special.

Caught the encore of Muse (some guy informed me that they’d been joined on stage by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson; it was actually Nic Cester). Wasn’t much fire to ‘Plug In Baby’ from where I was, probably the least rousing I’ve seen it played. Went home happy. Big surprise.

Sounds like you enjoyed a nicely chilled BDO. Can't say I'll be doing the same on Sunday so I'm hoping our weather is nothing like what you guys got! I think I'll check out Devendra Banhart after reading your post. I've been looking for something to save me from Lily Allen haha

JackT

JackT said on the 25th Jan, 2010

Yes, see Devendra, if only for a little bit. Was a pretty laidback set for most of it, but the band is a really good unit and seem really attuned to each other. Made for a good show.

andy_chalmers_102

andy_chalmers_102 said on the 25th Jan, 2010

I urge everyone to check out Passion Pit. They may be a hype band, but they know how to put on a damn good live show.
