    Cool SuperTallPaul 2012

    If you are camping make sure you find your way to the Jive Joint every night after the festival shuts down. You will know it by the painted art wall structure and a silly pigtailed tall guy playing a ukulele and performing magic inside. Come by in the morning from 10am to 2pm and lend your artistry by helping paint the structure. Come back again and bring your friends to see how it has changed throughout the weekends.

    So does this guy set up his own stuff in his own camping spot, or is he official coachella-hired campground entertainment? I hope it's the former.

    he started as a random guy on the fields a few years back, playing his ukulele and being one of the last live musical pleasures you could find on the camp grounds before crashing out

    coachella has allowed him to setup a little booth near the general store/roller rink area in the last year or two

    So who got the privilege to see this guy perform in the Jive Joint this year weekend one, Saturday at 4am. I guess technically it was Sunday at 4am.

    Never heard of this guy before. Apparently he is always at Coachella.

    I walked by the Jive Joint early Saturday afternoon. Saw some guy inside hammering away at some wood. I asked him what the thing was. He dramatically stopped what he was doing, looked me dead in the eyes and said " it is what it is."

    Come 4am after the festival wound down for Saturday. There must have been only 100 people in the Jive joint, all sitting down Indian style. Then tall Paul comes out and serenades us with awesome ukulele covers of black magic woman and many others. It's a shame, and yet a special feeling that only few got to enjoy this diamond in the rough.
    Superfan will be in front of the Fonda masturbating furiously to a photo of him taking a photo of a band. Set is from 8:05 to approximately 8:05:15. Guest list only.

    Hell Ya! Super Tall Paul! He was right by my campsite last year! I spent many of hours laughing my ass of in there in the wee hours. My friends and I went sat night last week around 3 or so and all we saw was a Dj so we bailed after about 20 min. I had no idea he came on at 4am this year!

    Paul is dead

    love super tall Paul! I felt like this year wasn't as good as the other years. it seemed to take too long for the "wtf is this crap" people to leave and for the show to really start. I think it used to start at 2 previous years. 4am is a little too late, especially when it really didn't get going until almost 5.

    I didn't see a SuperTallPaul 2013 thread, so I thought I'd bump this one.

    STP killed it yet again this year! He's becoming a Coachella staple for my friends and I. The Jive Joint is a great entertainment for those wee hours of the night when you're not quite ready for bed yet, pumped from the day before. I don't know where all of the weirdos who follow Paul around come from, but they add to the zany/mysteriousness of the whole experience. Great fun!

    yeah, the 4am start was disappointing. I only caught about 45 minutes saturday night weekend 1 and it was taking a bit too long to really get started.
