Debbie gave me her pick and even thanked us for coming to the show. I was like...WTF thank you for being so awesome. It was epic.

    Yup. My right ear in particular has been having some angry discussions with me all day.

    I kinda disagree, enjoyed the Civic center more. Was able to really drown in the sound there, felt a bit distracted in the field. And wasn't the lighting better indoors? I mean I needed earplugs, AND sunglasses at the civic.
    Either way - AMAZING! Band, album, live, always.

    Loved that they were killing the main stage, and I was enjoying it all the way in the Outdoor food court. Also wish my friends weren't such pussies and I stayed closer to the stage... but damn that was some good jambalaya.

    I did the same. I wanted to experience the holocaust fully so I threw my eagplugs up front. I was basically right behind supre's spot he was filming from. They were amazing. Afterwards I just kept yelling "HOLY FUCK!" because it was so unreal.

    let me just start off saying that i'm a huge valentines fan. i have a fuckin poster of the ymmr ep cover hanging above my bed! i saw them 3 times in '92, last year in San Fran,both shows here in Santa Monica and i'm going to see them next week in Seattle. They are probably my all time favorite band. The show at coachella was good but it did suffer from a couple sound problems. I was standing about 35 feet directly in line with the left main speakers and it seems like they cut off a few times{??} and the vocals were a little too low. Also the volume honestly was not even close to the recent LA or SF shows. When i saw them back in '92 they played in much smaller venues and it was unfunkinbeleivable how powerful it was. YMMR use to be over 25 minutes long!!! and most people had to walk out or to the rear of the club. If you guys ever have a chance to see them in a regular venue you'll see what i mean...overall i did thoroughly enjoy them and cant wait for next week.

    exactly. who wears ear plugs seriously? it's like saying, "oh i would like only a quarter of the quarter pounder. i just can't handle the whole thing."

    that is like not turning the amp up to "11" and leaving it at a "5".

    granted it isn't the wisest thing to do, but why play it safe with only a couple of days worth of concert music.

    when i turn 50 i will be proud to say to those who will have to shout at me that yes, throbbing gristle, turbonegro, mastodon, and my bloody valentine all played a part in my dearfness.

    Haha, for real.
    I would have liked to be next to that guy during their show at El Rey and watch him take his plugs out during You Made Me Realize.
    Granted, I had mine OUT during the whole show, it was great, but during the holocaust I know better then to fuck around like that.

    you do realize that with the right earplugs that the music can sound better, clearer?

    nice that you can joke about being deaf now, but you won't be laughing once the ringing in your ears is permanent. enjoy it!

    Wearing earplugs in an indoor venue is needed, but I had mine in for the first song and took them out, my ears are fine, the sound is not bouncing as much as an indoor venue, but it still was loud...

    During the concourse show, I had to have them in, but I took them out a couple time during YMMR...

    I saw DRI (not by choice) in 1989, and they were louder than MBV, from what I recall.

    thanks for the vids, suprefan.

    what a great show. i'd been wishing mbv would play coachella for years, and when it finally happened it did not disappoint. i stood up front for the first 3/4 of the show, then started walking around a bit to see how it sounded in different spots and check out some of the crowd reaction. it actually was louder further back, which surprised me.

    I wore a pair of all frequency attenuating ear plugs recommended by JustSteve all weekend in the Sahara. Aside from getting a locker, it was the smartest Coachella move I made.

    Thanks homie.

    I just caught MBV at Austin Music Hall last night in ATX and holy fuck, they blew me away. Christ, even before they got to "You Made Me Realize", it was fantastic. "Soon", "I Only Said", "When you Sleep" and "Only Shallow" were all great in their own right but man oh man, when they get to the outro of "You Made Me Realize" (aka 'The Holocaust') it's just transcendent. I tossed away my earplugs and was about 12 feet from the column of speakers. When the holocaust hit, I was in heaven (though in all honesty, I was wishing I hadn't thrown away my ear plugs around minute 10). Just mind-blowing stuff.

    This is not suprising at all. If you understand how sound works, if you are really close, it goes through you and thats it. Farther back, frequencies have time to build and be able to have their full potential. Seeing them indoors is ridiculous cause the sound has not one place to go but back at you off walls. At Coachella, it just went off into the night time air. Thus why I had been saying everyone should be lucky that they are playing outside so the holocaust isnt THAT dangerous.

    Hands down the most amazing set of the weekend. McCartney was great and played the classics but for sheer musicianship and sonic amazement MBV stole the show for me. I was in total awe, I want to go to APW now just for them they were that good. Fucking incredible. Several of my friends were on the fence about it but afterwards they too were convinced it was one of the best shows of the weekend. Kudos to them for being so fucking good.

    15:31- wow! That is insane! Also, I was keeping an eye out in your vids for a moment I could've sworn happened during the holocaust (and I think was mentioned earlier in this thread)- doesn't Kevin at some point walk up to the front of the stage and stare down the Cure fans who had been berating them with a "where is your God now?" look? Maybe it's just me imagining things. I imagined a lot during that 15 minutes.

    i saw mbv both nights in santa monica. the first night i was close to the stage and the second night i stood back by the sound board. it seemed louder when i was closer to the stage then, so that's why i was surprised it seemed louder further from the stage at coachella. maybe the second santa monica show actually was less loud overall. or maybe it was just hearing damage from the first night.

    My Bloody Nightmare is more like it... what a waste of 20 minutes.

    It was hilarious though sitting in front of the beer garden and watching Public Enemy going crazy trying to sing so the fans could hear the beginning of their set while MBV were being douchebags.
    Nothing can stop me now...
