    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?
    9/17 - Buzzcocks - Fonda (?)
    9/20 - Crosby, Stills & Nash - Santa Barbara Bowl
    9/21 - Caetano Veloso - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    9/26 - William Basinski - Pasadena Arts Council
    9/28 - Bob Mould - Roxy (?)

    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..

    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.

    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.

    Did I call this, or did I call it?

    Anyway, I kind of lost it at Roger Waters last year too, no matter the shit Randy talks about that show. It was a really special moment.

    And Sia too, actually... "Breathe Me" was an unbelievably powerful finish to her show. Extremely moving.
