    Default Who Popped Your Coachella Cherry?

    Who was the very first act you saw at your very first Coachella, around noon or 1:30 or whenever you had had your fill with the fans or the energy bikes? Will you always remember this act as part of your Coachella experience or is it completely forgettable?

    The Octopus Project popped my cherry on Sunday 2006. They came on at noon and were one of the few acts I saw outside of the mainstage. I called my girlfriend at the time, who had gotten me into them, while "The Adjustor" was playing and she got angry and impatient and hung up because she was so jealous.

    That's when I knew how great Coachella was. (The Octopus Project needs to be invited back btw)

    So who gave you your first memory and began your long road to obsession with the best music festival in America? Rogue Wave? Comedians of Comedy? The Killurz?

    Lots of people arriving at 3pm?
    Hm, yeah Silversun Pickups was much better but I thought Satellite Party was a fun performance. Perry is just too fun to watch, and his wife is good eye candy. The songs were good enough so I wasn't bored.

    I know how it feels, I missed Saturday '06 (Daft Punk).

    Head Automatica. They broke my Coachella hymen too.

    Not a horrible band...but I wish I had a better 1st.
    Their first album was good. I saw them at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz and had fun. Considering some bands that play at noon or early you could do a lot worse than Head Automatica.

    That was also my first Coachella moment, well, after a night of camping that is. They had a lot of energy so it was a great start to the weekend.

    They were cool. I wanted to see Comedians of Comedy but my gf said she didn't want her first Coachella experience to be a comedy act. I sort of regret it, but I guess it was the right thing to do for her, and they were fun.

    Man, we have like three pairs of 'Chella Cherry Chums in this thread. Did anyone else get their cherry popped by Octopus Project? There were at least 200 people watching; one of them has to be on the board.

    the rapture. followed by what must have been christopher lawrence. I can't say either were very memorable. but the experience of being there for the first time was awesome.

    Same here. I honestly had NO idea what expect from Coachella. Some friends just invited me and I happened to stumble upon the MIdnight Juggernauts as the first band I saw. Never ever even heard of them and figured they'd be some gay rock band. But long behold it was a small preview of diversity of Coachella artists and I got along with people in the crowd because they are just so chill. TWAS NICE.
