    Did anyone feel the moment when Yeah Yeah Yeahs played "Cheated Hearts" as the sun was setting in 06? I judge every sunset against that now.

    There are many moments, but for some reason last year in the middle of My Morning Jacket there were a few hoola-hoopers with scarfs dancing so magically and it was right near sunset, i believe i shed a tear.

    Also: I believe I was high

    In 2005 dancing to the Chemical Brothers in the Sahara. It was my first Coachella and I was by myself. Awesome moment.

    In 06 I remember running to the Sahara after Depeche Mode finished Enjoy the Silence. My senses were rocked til just past midnight.

    Jarvis Cocker in 07 was probably my favorite set at Coachella of all time. Not epic in a big way but still very epic.

    Good thread.


    (wipes away single dramatic tear)

    2005/6 was fucking hell.
    I had just gone through a bad divorce in 05,
    my truck gets stolen in 06 and to top it all off, I attend my dads funeral 2 months later. The icing on the cake was the legal crap and run ins with the law.
    If you remember BD's thread re: her felony conviction, that was only 1/2 of the story.
    Maybe I'll share my 1/2 as we sit around the (pretend) camp fire next weekend.
    So yeah, that night in the Sahara was the beginning of a huge change in my life.....all for the better.

    ps....
    I'm gonna be a grandpa in a few months...

    Still one of my favorite performances. "Yeah" was so fucking powerful and loud and amazing. Everyone SCREAMING "YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH". Jumping around like idiots. Bass shaking our brains and eyeballs. Uhhh....so great.

    Not to mention Arcade Fire's "My Body Is A Cage" an hour before that and The Black Keys' "Everywhere I Go" and hour later.

    Such a great night.

    This thread is really getting me pumped up!

    I think that was my least favorite song of their set...i guess i just think Cheated Hearts is a horrible song to open a set with.

    Since the show list is very minimal...

    how many people were packed into the Sahara for MIA's set
    people passing out, the crowd moving as an ocean, swimming through the crowd

    it was all pretty unreal
    the chaos was blissful

    I dont know why, but that set was ridiculous, and that song just made that day go from good to really amazing.

    I am just a gigantic fan of walking in for the first time. Walking past the plethora of porto-potties (last year with the new lobby area was nice). Just awesome.

    Coachella 2007 - Gogol Bordello was about halfway into "Start Wearing Purple" when I started to get that unreal feeling you people speak of and it didnt stop 'till the end of the set... well actually I get that feeling even still now, every time I remember that night.

    I'm fairly sure that wasn't the opening song. Maybe it was.

    Oh and the first 15 seconds of RATM when the ground was shaking.
    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.

    It wasn't. But it was quite timed up with the sun starting to sink. Gold Lion, Maps, and Y Control were all way more unreal.

    My first year was 2007, and Gogol Start wearing Purple is when i realized that I would be coming every year.

    Rage, when they took the stage and introduced themselves the excitement in the air was fucking magical.

    Portishead last year was just too good to be true. I wasn't a fan until Randy made his thread about how missing them would be a big mistake. I made it a point to try and get into them I am soooo glad I did. I remember looking over at my buddy asking if this was really happening about halfway through the set, and seeing complete awe as he shock his head no. Really the most amazing show i have ever seen.

    I am in the same boat as Capt. Funkaho, if it wasn't for Rage in 2007 I wouldn't have gone to last years Coachella or this one, and it would have been such a big mistake. I really regret not coming in 2006 when I almost made the trip.

    I am with Blinken and the Capt. But I have told that story before.

    I think watching Bjork was a huge thing for me, in that moment, I awoke from my musical dogmatic slumber...I had a year of musical awakenings, from seeing Radiohead in Berkeley in 06 (night one) to Bjork 9 months later...But standing there on those polo fields, watching that reactable, and a zillion people on stage...

    Bjork was my biggest lesson. Discovering Gogol Bordello a few months later, and realizing I had missed one of the most epic experiences ever, was a good lesson on what I call Coachellanomics, you gotta choose, choose wisely. Bjork was important, but not just for her being Bjork...

    Yes to the Rage moment that so many people have mentioned...

    But also in 07, watching Ratatat from the rail, with Lohan 3 feet in front of me rocking the fuck out having the time of her life, having my entire face, brain, perception of the world, melted...awesome sensory overload...

    Watching Battles yes, Watching Waters yes, Watching KraftPortisPrince was overwhelming...

    This year? Ida Maria will be amazing, Ghostland will be amazing, the Beatle...

    Right, that's what I thought. Maybe those other three songs were unreal by themselves, but Cheated Hearts was perfect for the sunset and I have yet to experience a better moment at sunset. The National came close. Y Control would be awesome at sunset too.
