    Okay, I'll admit that's another drawback for Week 2. He was so fucking awesome that its now gonna be near impossible to get in the tent next Fri. Same with M83, assuming it was possible to get any worse.

    Really looking forward to this set next weekend!

    If you dig his style check out The Soft White Sixties out of SF. Here's part of their performance from SXSW:

    Yea seeing him was an experience. Closest thing I'll ever see to Jimi. The epitome of cool and a beast on the guitar.

    He just popped up on my ipod at work and I was transported back to Friday.1 afternoon, with the cloudy grey sky backdrop, the wind gusting, the palm trees bending and twisting around behind the stage, and feeling how awesome it was to see this in person and how weird it was to be wearing long sleeves in the desert at 4:30pm. Has it been nearly two weeks already?

    I decided to listen to some of his music before going. I was more impressed with him live. He rocked that tent, man did he shred. In my top 3 favorites of last weekend.

    It was surreal to say the least!!! That set started our Coachella and can easily be the best set of the weekend. It had that mystic of something special..

    Nice pics supre...

    This guy is a very talented artist. Soul, trippy noise and rhythm for days.
    He can really do things with reverb and feedback...harnessing the energy like a young Hendrix.
    Love his voice and lyrics too. Thank you Coachella for introducing.

    Knew thismuch about him before weekend one, caught the end of his act was totally sucked in, went back for the whole thing weekend 2. I almost passed out it was so hot and sweaty in that tent, but it was so worth it. Great set.

    The solo on Bright Lights with the palm trees blowing in the storm behind him was a moment. Superb musicianship.
