    Re: Worst Perfomance?

    I don't think it's reasonable to expect celebrities to be 100% present for their fans 100% of the time. Sometimes you just don't want to take a picture with a complete stranger. In general,...

    Re: AKS Weekend 2 Viewing Thread

    I like Haim's pop music, but I also enjoyed watching them rock out live. Girls can't sing live, though. Agree with whoever said the youngest seems to have the best voice.

    Saturday/Sunday seem to have much stronger lineups as far as AXS goes...especially since they just excitedly announced that they signed up Outkast to be on tonight.

    Not quite AKS, not quite live, and not full sets, but good enough. Pretty limited commercials.

    I've been to 5 Coachellas (2004-2007, 2011), and I almost certainly won't be able to make it this year. There have certainly been years where I've looked at the lineup and be pretty enthused, but I...
