    Most unreal moment of a past Coachella? Easy. The moment "Close Encounters" ended, and "R*O*B*O*T* began! To this day I will never forget the energy that consumed the Sahara Tent that nite!

    The moment we actually get all our shit in the truck, lock the doors, and drive down the street to the campgrounds will be the first of many unreal moments next week, followed by waking up the first morning in a tent in the middle of a polo field, and realizing I have to get dressed just to go pee!
    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.

    I'm not much of a rage fan but seeing them approach the stage on the big screen and the excitement of the crowd was moooving for me, seeing radiohead for the first time and hearing creep was icing on a decedant cake, kraftwerk in the sahara, daftpunk...wish you were here and prince doing creep was a surprise but almost blasphemousss!!! But I was stoked to hear sheila bang'n 'em out!!!

    For me it was hearing the drumming of Sheila E and the beginning of The Glamourous Life and then when i saw her I shit myself. ALways wanted to see her live but was afraid she sang her crappy latin jazz style of music only.

    Also actually seeing Madonna on the stage in the Sahara that was pretty unreal for me at coachella
    "It's in the K" - Martha Stewart

    Since the show list is very minimal...

    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.

    The surreal, dreamy feeling that everyone is describing IS Coachella.

    When Prince came out on stage and said, "Coachella I am here!"

    That was a pretty unreal moment.

    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.
    Oh yeah, duh. God, my memory is fuzzy as fuck from that day.

    I would say:
    2004 - Pixies, I never really got into them when they were popular (cuz I'm lame like that), but when they came on stage at Coachella and the sun was setting...just a beautiful, beautiful moment. And Radiohead after that of course. I remember running to get water for my dehydrated husband during that part in Creep when Thom sings (run, run, RUN....)

    2005 - Bauhaus (above) Peter Murphy hanging upside down for 8 minutes of Bela Lugosi's Dead (isn't that what it was?). Coldplay changing "Yellow" to "Coachello"

    2006 - Daft Punk (duh) and Massive Attack

    2007 - BJORK dancing around the stage and singing her little heart out and Infected Mushroom

    2008 - Kraftwerk into Portishead. I cried. twice. And I shook Beth's hand.

    Seeing VNV Nation with a few hundred people while we danced our asses off. Awesome vibes considering the only people in the tent seemed to be diehard VNV fans, since they were up against Rage and Infected Mushroom.

    As Daft Punk finishes their set and the lights come on, the Disney song "Wish Upon a Star" starts playing.
    It was about being there with the two most important people in my life, my daughter Lindsay and Beverly.
    It was about the Hell we had all gone through, the wrong turns we had made and the shit that we had all stepped in that brought us all together in the Sahara tent that night.
    You see, it had been a long time since I had seen my daughter.
    As the lights came on, there she was.
    Good times.....
    I'll never forget that night...

    Wow, dude that almost brought tears to my eyes. It was like a Coachella PSA.

    Anyways 2007, Explosions in the Sky blew blew blew me away. Mind numbingly amazing.
    When Zach first started speaking during Rage.

    2008: Prince, when he finally arrived, then Purple Rain and his love making version of Little Red Corvette.
    Roger Waters was absolutely incredible.
    And oddly enough, Battles was one of the best shows of that whole weekend. They completely superceded every expectation and rocked it.

    2009: Paul McCartney is all I need to say.
