    The best ever was the 2005 Arcade Fire preformance on the Outdoor stage.
    Last year's was ok but having to endure Kings of Leon was a bit much.
    Last years best were JAMC on Friday, LCD on Saturday and The Teddybears on Sunday.

    The Cure are my favorite band, ever. But Coachella was probably the worst show I've ever seen them play.

    I'm going with the Pixies.

    I thought Kings of Leon performed a great set. If the Cure's Coachella's performance was their worst then I can hardly wait till they come to the bowl.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    From the last three years at Coachella, these are the best I have seen in no particular order

    Manu Chao 07
    M.I.A. 05
    Arcade Fire 05
    The Good, the Bad & the Queen 07
    DAFT Punk 06
    Rage Against the Machine 07
    Blackstar 05--this was great, Mos Def wanted to keep playing and had to be forced off by member's of Indio's law enforcement community
    Gnarls Barkley 06--opening with a flawless rendition of "Breathe" while dressed ass Wizard of Oz characters left quite an impression, both mentally and sonically.
    Bjork 07
    My Morning Jacket 06

    Massive Attack into Tool was pretty epic but Pixies into Radiohead is still my personal fave.

    Roger Waters best "big" show.

    PiL best overall performance by a band.

    Elbow and Suede are tied for best "thought they would be good, instead they were awesome".

    The best performance ever was My Bloody valentine in 2009, and that is not even a choice!

    Truth. They really nailed their set. During the Holocaust I still vividly remember the looks of anger and confusion on the faces of the small group of Cure fans directly in front of me. And field in front of the mainstage looked like an apocalyptic wasteland afterwards. It was all pretty damn glorious!

    /puking later was not so glorious but eh

    This makes my head hurt trying to decided what was my favorite set at coachella.I would say The Verve yet they didn't play one song from their EP or Storm in Heaven.
