How the fuck is it every media outlet failed to mention this:
If I had known, I would have gone.
He played "Babies"
Oh, in that case, no.
Fuck badge holders up their stupid asses.
(maybe if there were a couple more Pulp songs in the mix)
If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella
Did anyone see Adam Freeland's Live band? I saw their first show, it was in San Diego on Wed night - I loved it. You'd have never known it was the first show either.
Coachella '06, '07, '09
Thats awesome Harrisment, I too was there for Boys Noize and vouch that it was a great set. Also saw Adam Freelands too short of a live set at the Red Eyed Fly but was still stellar and then just saw his dj set yesterday night!!
Other noteworthy highlights:
Kanye West, Common, Erykah Badu, and Kid Cudi
Flosstradamus - caught half set
Asobi Seksu - caught half set
Ponytail - just a happy accident I caught this set
Big dissapointment: Kraak and Smaak
Apparently they needed more channels then the club could give them and left in a big huff.
Funny enough but the Vivian Girls were everywhere but not once did I get a chance to see them.
Got one last show tonight by Rusko @ Barcelona, all these bands and the only thing I have spent $$$ is food!
so far i've seen:
department of eagles
black joe lewis
primal scream (bobby was giving us high fives the whole show)
cut off your hands
echo and the bunnymen
peter bjorn and john
echo and the bunnymen, again.
all of those were full sets, except vivian girls. i didn't want to see some bands (white lies, razorlight, etc) but then again, they were playing before others like pj harvey so i couldn't avoid them.
highlight: pj harvey.
Aww, SXSW is over eh? was gonna suggest The Octopus Project. Seriously my favorite band from Austin.
