    Default The Best Back-To-Back Performance At Coachella?

    IMHO it's either Pixies> Radiohead or Massive Attack>Tool.

    What's your choice?

    BTW Does Leonard Cohen > Paul McCarthy count?

    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Kraftwerk-Portishead-Prince has to be the best that I've seen.
    If we're lucky something will happen. Some adversity will happen and something unexpected will happen and you'll get tired and you'll get hungry, you'll have trouble going to the bathroom, and you'll lose your car keys, and all these wonderful things will add up to some powerful experience that 10 years from now we'll say "We lived, we lived." - Wayne Coyne on Coachella

    I'm from the future.
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    for the record. anything that involved switching stages shouldn't count. Because then it wouldn't count as a "back to back" performance I feel.

    For the benefit of the thread, I think stage-switching should be allowed.

    that isnt considered back to back then.

    back to back typically implies on the same stage
