Does anyone remember this young guy (couldn't have been older than 18) standing front and center, with huge curly hair and black framed glasses? During the entire show he held one of the roses Amy Milan tossed out delicately against his bosom, and I SWEAR he knew the lyrics to every song from their set. During "Take Me to the Riot", he couldn't contain himself and actually reached out towards the stage, tugging his t-shirt with one hand and clawing towards the band with the other.

I was about two rows back, and whenever I think of Coachella I am reminded by him. I was wondering if anyone remembered this guy, too.

I see plenty of evidence of you clutching a flower, but none of you clutching it to "your bosom".

I'd venture to suggest that the OP was exaggerating for humorous effect, the little scamp.

Yeah... their performance was... blah. As I said in a previous thread regarding this subject, if the clouds didn't roll in to make the sky overcast, I wasn't sitting through them much longer. It got a little cloudy during their set and brought some heat relief.... that made their set a tad bit more bearable

I really liked what I saw, which was just the last few songs.

But the song in that youtube ain't doing anything for me except annoying me. Maybe it's good I just showed up at the end.

it wasn't horrible or anything. they're just really not to my taste, and I was ancy as all hell to see gogol bordello (hence my being about a foot out of frame in those photots)

Oh cool, because a snapshot totally represents what someone was like during an entire set.

Yeah because that's totally not creepy or anything...

Honestly? Stars were pretty alright. I'm not a really huge fan of anything past the Nightsongs EP and I really wish they'd go back to making less pseudo-Arcade Fire/BSS style indie music and bring back the electronic elements.

But yeah, FAR from being the best performance of the weekend... That honor goes to Kraftwerk, IMO.

so you are saying you only like their first album and thats it.... no heart, set yourself on fire, in our bedbroom after the war, or sad robots....

funny cause i think everything after nightsongs is good with set yourself on fire being their best work.

i see them more of a band like the postal service, but with better song writing and less fruity loops tracks...

did you happen to catch them at the vista in santa cruz?

Scamp is a word that's tragically underused.

Also, somebody once stole the cover - just the cover - off my copy of Set Yourself on Fire from the manager's office at work. They didn't steal any of the other CDs or CD covers. Just that one.

Is the remix CD any good?

Some of the stuff on it is a hit and miss, but a few tracks are decent. Don't buy the album but download 2-3 tracks. I recommend the Most Serene Republic's take on Ageless Beauty.

whats weird is my version of set yourself on fire has a different cover, no guy on it...

i like the remix album but i also am fans of all the bands that are doing the remixes so i am kinda biased.

You see what I did there? I exaggerated for humorous effect too, implying that you literally meant "the entire show". :D

I have a sneaking suspicion that might be a Euro only cover.

Metric do He Lied About Death right? My favourite Stars song, and what used to be my favourite band on earth, but I've heard their track isn't great. Which one is Final Fantasy?

Passive, that is a classic photo. You will still dig that photo 20 years from now, so screw what anyone else says.

So when you are in the #1 position on the main stage, front-and-center, can you actually leave and make it back there? Bathroom?

PassiveTheory

I doubt I could have made it back there, given the number of Gogol fans just salivating at the chance to bum rush Eugene.

And thankfully I never had to use the restroom, but thanks for your kind words.
