First Aid Kit is one of my favorite of the recent slew of girl bands. They are quite excellent musicians and can put on a stirring show. I look forward to seeing them for the first time at Coachella 2012!

It's cool they have the Jack White seal of approval, although WHite also worked with the dreadful Insane Clown Posse.

How can you find them boring? I find Matchbox 20 boring, and slightly revolting.

They like Fever Ray, so they're coachella board approved.

I remember seeing that Fleet Foxes cover they did a couple years back and thinking they were just another youtube sensation with no actual artistic merit. For the sake of the festival, however, I decided to check out their album that's dropping here in a week or two and I'm honestly quite in love with it. Their vocal harmonies are absolutely mesmerizing and their song writing is top-notch for a couple girls in their early 20's. This song in particular drew me more than any other. Ridiculously awesome...

Glad I saw this, I've been listening to them quite a lot since I first saw this post yesterday. My favorites so far are Hard Believer and Ghost Town. All of their songs are nice and chill, and I love the feeling that listening to their voice gives me. Can't wait to see them now!

Well, they are signed to The Knife's record label.

First album is worth checking out too, and the 2nd has just gone to No1 in Sweden.

Seen them a few times live and they've always been captivating.

I suspect they'll be in a tent, mid-afternoon, so it likely won't be a worry. Excited to see them. Hope my rocker son agrees.

Make sure to check out First Aid Kit's first release, Drunken Trees EP. It's WAY BETTER than their two full lengths. Most likely they'll play live staples Tangerine, Our Own Pretty Ways, and You're Not Coming Home Tonight during their Coachella set.

I disagree with ^^ post. The EP is not better - the 2 full releases are both WAY better
than the EP.

Drunken Trees (catchy, fresh, solid lyrics) > The Lion's Roar (dig the country vibe) > Big Black & The Blue (unfocused and boring)

Absolutely beautiful song, a must see band for Sunday surrounded by the Coachella Valley scenery. Especially since this song was inspired by Gram Parsons who loved and was cremated at nearby Joshua Tree. Possibly a Gram Parsons listening whiskey pre party last day of Coachella 2012?

This song has been rolling around in my head for some time now. I know there's so many great acts on Sunday, but for me they are a band that is a must see despite any conflicts that might occur during their set. In my mind they're right behind ATDI, Justice, and Flo as far as most anticipated goes that day.

You know the attempted rogue cremation failed, right? He's buried in New Orleans instead. But there's a nice little unofficial tribute spot in JTNP, I'm going to there on Thursday to pay homage before Coachella.

I really like their music, but my god their set was fucking boring the two times I've seen them.
EDIT- It's not that it's boring, it all just starts blending in(sorta like Tallest Man on Earth). It starts out great, but after a couple songs you can't wait to see something else.

I hope that's not how it is for me. I've never see them live before so I can't speak from experience like you, but I can listen to both albums endlessly without falling into a state of hearing one continuous sound. Maybe I'm just weird like that, or is it completely different hearing them live? I have been dying to see them for such a long time now, so I hope it lives up to the expectations I have in my mind.

I saw all three of them and all 3 were great. First Aid Kit sounded awesome. They kinda need to embrace the fact that they are more folk/country than rock though, watching them stomp around on stage and do "big rock endings" as if they were AC/DC was pretty funny. They're young, they'll figure it out.

Their set was by far one of my favorites this past weekend. I thought they showed just how talented they are when they overcame the keyboard problems that occurred. It was nice hearing that mini acoustic set in the middle. Then I went to meet them at the Zia tent to get a vinyl signed and take a picture and they were so nice to talk to. Very friendly. I love everything about this band.

One of my favorite sets - I loved how supportive the crowd was despite the gaps. Apparently they fried a keyboard in Chicago earlier this month and just got a new one, so maybe that was part of the issue.

One of my friends did the Facebook check-in thing and got two txts thinking he was hurt.

I saw them in Philly at the end of March and knew there was no way I was missing them weekend one at Coachella. The version they did of "Emmylou" in Philly just blew the crowd away, and then when they did "Ghost Town", they did it a capella and ahd the entire audience sing along. This made me appreciate that song even more.

And Sunday's weekend one set of theirs was one of my festival highlights as well.
