    I didn't see their set, we were at Tool.

    Were The Raveonettes good in 2005?

    I enjoyed their set this year, but damn that volcano!!!

    Yeah, there were a ton of people in the tent to say the least. Alison came out in an awesome red dress and they opened with "Utopia" (I think) and also played a number of altered versions of their Supernature songs amid the Seventh Tree material.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    The Presets slayed in 2009.

    Goldfrapp in 2008 were good but not great. Their set was heavy on Seventh Tree and seemed pretty short. The tent was fucking packed though.

    Anyone see Basement Jaxx in 2004?
    Interpol in 2007?

    Only time I would have liked to see him was in 2001 with Janes Addiction. He blew in 2006 when he was a special guest for Hybrid. And his DJ set in 05 that I saw part of was lame. I did get his autograph in 08 though backstage.

    Were Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis good in 2005/2008/2009? I have a curse on me that seems to never allow me to catch them/her at the polo fields because of conflicts.

    I am not even a particular fan of theirs, but I thought Rilo Kiley was FANTASTIC in 2008. They're extremely good performers, and a very tight band. Also, the timing of their playing on the outdoor stage was terrific and it looked absolutely beautiful.

    they were pretty fun, even though the vocals are annoying. if you LOVE presets though, you would have LOVED this set. i just don't LOVE them.

    she was fucking adorable. i don't really know much of her music, but my friend made me see her and i'm glad she did. jenny was having a blast.

    it was good because i was fucking READY to see new order. it was this perfect storm of my life going through a break-up and crying my way through new order, only to then feel completely empowered through NIN.

    his vocals were off. i remember him being sick. still though, i enjoyed the set, despite all the nin fans who didn't seem to care. love will tear us apart was amazing for me. regret was great for me also. i liked crystal a lot more live. blue monday was hilarious because they started off with kylie minogue's "can't get you out of my head" and then mixed it into blue monday.

    pretty sure this is them:

    New Order was a bit lackluster in 2005 for the reasons above. Bernard had an injured arm or leg (can't remember which) and couldn't dance around as much as he normally does (according to him). I remember they did a couple Joy Division songs, but it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Blue Monday/Can't Get You Outta My Head was cool though.

    I'm kinda curious if anyone at all watched Tosca that year. Granted, they started way earlier than SWR/DP/Rakes did, but still, I never read about anyone seeing them at all.

    Interpol in 07 killed it. An absolutely amazing performance to say the least. Hoping that they come back next year.

    Was Soulwax good in 07? I unfortunately wasn't into electronic music back then.

    The Raveonettes in 2005 was a lot of fun. They were mid-day and it was pretty hot, so I sat back in one of the shade tents that they had facing the main stage. They got a good groove going, but I left a bit early to catch all of M83.

    They were cool, I wish I was able to see Sonic Youth though while retaining my awesome spot at the main stage for Bjork, since I've seen Interpol so many times.

    It was so awesome and hilarious. I watched the second half, and there were maybe 20 people in the tent. People would walk in, stare for a few seconds and then walk away with their hands on their ears. One of the guys had a guitar neck rigged with pickups and was playing that. It was one of the more intense noise shows I've seen, considering the location and the crowd. Also, the Locust played not long after them. That year was good for brutality.

    Muse in 2004 was one of the best Coachella sets I've ever seen. My friend and I were going to get stuff signed by Belle and Sebastian, and I heard Muse start up. I wasn't familiar with their music but remember Mountmccabe posting about how excited he was for them, and I figured why not. They put on an incredible show, and really dropped my jaw.
