  1. Re: Your top five acts of Coachella 2014 (Weekend One Edition)

    My 2nd time seeing Mogwai and they blew me away again. I don't think I've ever seen a more intense live band. I could have easily rated them #1, but the singularity of seeing NMH again, and the...

    I don't know why you're fighting this battle. Radiohead became the band every hipster and his ironic t-shirt loved in the '90s. They didn't play much from their '90s-early 00s stuff. It's not like...

    Re: Worst Coachella 2012 Band.

    For me the worst experience was Gotye, but it wasn't really the artist's fault so much as the crowd.
