    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?

    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.

    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.

    The Charlatans UK. They played the outdoor stage. It was strange taking that 2 hour trip and walking into this festival not knowing what to expect. After that performance, I was hooked. It now feels like my vacation home in the desert.
    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.

    My sister took me last year for the first time and we got there mid afternoon Friday, She just grabbed my hand and took me from stage to stage, I had no clue who we were seeing during the day. I do vaguelly remember sitting in the Sahara tent though waiting for someone to come on for our first act we seen. I will have to ask her who it was. I was just so in awe of all the people and the wonderfulness of everything, I think the first 3 hours were spent in a daze.

    I didn't manage to go until 07 and think Tokyo Police Club was the first band that I saw.... it was sooo hot that day that I was having trouble venturing out into the sun earlier in the day.

    Damn, I can't remember. What was the very first act in 2006? Outdoor Stage I believe.
