    Default 5 top lower tier bands per day

    I know very little about any of the lower tier/earlier in the day bands. Any suggestions or favorites per day?

    Define what a "Lower tier" band means to you? how low on the list.

    Some good bands that I really want to see that aren't all that high on the poster are bands like:

    Los Campesinos (one of my top 5 of the entire festival)
    Ida Maria
    Dear and the Headlights
    The Courteeners
    Vivian Girls

    Oh snap! Ok, let's say buzz bands? Or 12:30-3:00 p.m. bands. I know no one after Patton and Rahzel on Friday and Public Enemy on Sunday and would like any suggestions. Thanks.

    For Sunday my 5 after Public Enemy are: Friendly Fires, K'naan, Plump DJ's, Okkervil River, Etienne De Crecy. Sunday was the easy day for me.

    edit: there are more than 5 on Sunday that I hope to catch earlier in the day.

    As for Friday after Patton & Rahzel, if pressed, I would say: Craze & Klever, Los Campesinos, The Presets, A Place to Bury Strangers, and White Lies.


    Are you not attending Saturday? You can always read around on here and find plenty of information once you filter through the chatter.

    This year is crazy strong on the lower tiers (i'll keep to an arbitrary limit of bottom 4 lines of each day)

    Friday: Los Campesinos! (so great live, Welsh spazzcore ftw), Noah & The Whale (fun folky rock), The Aggrolites (thoroughly decent rocksteady/ska), Gui Boratto (very pretty techno)

    Saturday: Ida Maria (absolutely awesome), Bloody Beetroots (insert 'face melting' comment here), Amanda Palmer (fantastic live), Bob Mould (Husker Du + Sugar songs = good time)

    Sunday: The Night Marchers (rip-roaring gutterbucket rock), Gaslight Anthem (really solid), Late of the Pier (like a young spazzy Duran Duran), Plump DJs (big juicy breakbeat chaos)

    yeah, i guess Cloud Cult is this year's Rogue Wave... i'll watch them, if no one else is playing, but since Saturday has the most number of acts, it'll be doubtful...

    i like tv commercial bands, but GV likes to pick the wrong ones...

    Without doubt, anyone who come just for the evening sets is absolutely missing out on a lot of the best acts this Coachella has to offer. Sunday's undercard is freakin' ridiculous it's so damn loaded.
