What do The Sheepdogs and Radiohead, Pulp, Bon Iver, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, M83, the Weeknd, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Jeff Mangum, the Black Keys, Mazzy Star, Azealia Banks, Frank Ocean, Girls, Cat Power, Neon Indian, Justice, Florence and the Machine, Beirut, WU LYF, AraabMuzik, the Shins, Feist, A$AP Rocky, Andrew Bird, Explosions in the Sky, EMA, At the Drive-In, Refused and Mike Watt’s band fIREHOSE have in common?
Dashing good looks? Round-the-clock personal stylists? Tour bus with walk in humidor?
The Saskatoon group has been added to the 2012 Coachella’s Friday night line-up.
Sure, they might be the second-to-last group on the poster (take that LA Riots!) in the smallest typeface, but they have the massive distinction of playing with the fucking Refused! Headlining the evening is the Black Keys, who you may also have heard of.
In fact, while it may be old news that Patrick Carney, drummer the Black Keys, is producing the upcoming album from the Sheepdogs, apparently Rolling Stone contributing editor Austin Scaggs is set to co-produce the record as well.
Which means that maybe ‘Dogs fans should start bracing themselves for a “salty” album.
Anyway, if you are oozing with money and are planning on going to Coachella 2012 then we seriously would love to chat with you about doing a Sheepdogs review… Also, screw you and your money.
