    Default Unreal Coachella moments...?

    Every now and then when I'm at a show, I stop and think to myself "Holy shit, I can't believe _____ is on stage playing in front of me right now.

    How many times and for who will this happen to you over the course of the weekend at Coachella?
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)
    8/06 - Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    8/07 - Haim - Wiltern (?)

    I've had countless wet dreams about seeing Steve Aoki in person.

    This has been my desktop background since the day the lineup came out..

    2004 - first time to ever see Radiohead.

    Also in 2004, the Rapture made a huge fan out of me, just playing Echoes material, good lord that was the best thing to see inbetween Pixies & Radiohead that year.

    2005 - The Arcade Fire no doubt, even though the mics weren't quite working when they came out and all bust into WAKE UP, it was on. Also just playing Funeral material a big plus.

    2006:
    -Animal Collective opening with Banshee Beat & closing with We Tigers
    -Sigur Ros at sunset.
    -Seeing Kanye dance around to A-Ha's "Take On Me".
    -Daft Punk.
    -Watching Wolf Parade blow through their 50 minute set in 35 minutes lol
    -Whenever during Massive Attack they announced Horace Andy & Liz Fraser were in the house... damn
    -Maynard telling us to get out our calculators for Lateralus. awesome.

    Leonard Cohen definitely, Paul McCartney of course.

    Robert Smith probably but it won't hit me till they start playing Lullaby or Love Song or something. Probably same deal with Morrissey. I guess once they hit 70 they'll be in the other category haha.

    I think maybe Chemical bros, TV on the Radio, Thievery Corporation could all give me a little tingling in my pants too. And even though I've seen them, YYYs and MBV. And Mike Patton.
    Ron Paul 2012!

    Upcoming Shows:
    Four Tet
    Coachella 4/20-4/22
    Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
    Radiohead
    some other bands

    "Wish You Were Here" was a highlight for me too, but in 2007... Rodrigo y Gabriela were amazing.

    i cried like a wussy lady through about half of the arcade fire in 07. I've had so many moments that blew me away, though... Spiritualized, when they finally hit their groove (last year?), Roger waters when the big speakers boomed in, Prince, and Gogol Bordello in 07. And honestly, being in the middle of that surging crowd for Arcade Fire in 06 is the happy place, the spot of pure love and joy, that I go to in my head whenever I'm having a bad day. Moments like that are what keep me connected to art, and why I look forward to Coachella with such anticipation all year long.
    1999 - 2013, every day, every weekend, no regrets

    I'm pretty sure everyone else on the Polo fields that night shares this sentiment. That was an amazing moment.
    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

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Pixies making their fans dreams come true and then making many more fans in the process by absolutely killing it
    Radiohead doing what they do better than everyone else
    everybody losing it to Arcade Fire on the outdoor theater at sunset
    Hafsol->Untitled 8 at sunset
    the robots and the pyramid revealed
    Liz Fraser singing "Teardrop"
    Jarvis Cocker taking the stage in the most epic way: busting sweet dance moves and throwing candy
    Bjork and the fucking reactable
    everybody around me losing their shit as Rage took the stage and went into "Bulls on Parade"
    "Bittersweet Symphony"
    Portishead in general
    Prince finally coming out, then Morris Day & Jerome doing "Jungle Love", then "Creep", then "Purple Rain" and "Let's Go Crazy"
    "Wish You Were Here", the pig and the flames, the recreation of the DSOTM cover, everyone singing along to "Another Brick in the Wall", "Comfortably Numb" and the fireworks at the end

    Next weekend:
    Paul McCartney and the fireworks for "Live and Let Die", hopefully "A Day in the Life", etc
    My Bloody Valentine raping our ears with the holocaust
    "How Soon Is Now?"
    "Hallelujah"
    the cube

    I loved this too- I didn't know I could totally lose rational thought over a band until that moment - but the first song they played was "Testify."

    When Zack grabbed the mic and said, "Good evening, we are Rage Against The Machine from Los Angeles," all of a sudden I was like one of those girls at a Beatles concert. Only with more bro-tastic guys smashing into me from all sides.

    I'm sure there are some on the board who will think less of me for being that worked up over Rage, but I'm not ashamed. If Rage hadn't played that year, it might have been years before I decided to come to Coachella for the first time, and that would have been a tremendous loss for me even if I didn't know it.
