    Pretty sure Calvin Harris was the biggest disappointment. I was expecting that he would have performed with a live band, which is the type of performance you would expect for a Coachella appearance. Instead, all he did was play the SAME tracks that all the other Sahara DJs did...it was such a bro-love fest in the Sahara this year. Oh well...at least those douches didn't spend time at the other stages.

    EMA was the absolute worst... it's a band of theater kids who just make music that is neither interesting or desirable. That being said, I didn't watch them so much as be stuck in line trying to pick up my phone and having to hear their whole set broadcast in the Beats by Dre tent (avoid this btw)

    *takes a deep breath* All right, I'm going to say this, and there's going to be a fight... Screw the Black Keys

    The fact they can put out the two laziest albums from a musical standpoint and still get as much love as they do is ridiculous. Every song from their set was, without exception, nearly identically composed, with maybe a different kick pattern here or a different chord there. And people just eat it up. It's half-assed fake blues, and nobody is willing to call them on their crap. It's frustrating, and it should drive anyone who plays music up the freakin' wall. I don't care how good their early stuff is, they've cashed in and are just going through the motions.

    Disagree, Amon Tobin suffered from being the last show on an absolutely packed day, I left his show early, but it was because I'd been on site for like 11 hours at that point, and I'm fat and out of shape, so my conditioning wasn't up for it. The music was fine, the stage show was pretty rad, his set time was the nut low

    I thought EMA was pretty good. Certainly more engaging than when I first saw her open for Wild Beasts last year. Being familiar with material also helped, I guess.

    Disagree on Grouplove. That show was pretty fun.

    I still don't get the camping all day for Radiohead. Love Radiohead, but you could have
    gone 1 hour before they started and have been very very close. Makes no sense.

    Well, her (not their) debut album is universally acclaimed, including top and near-the-top placements on some reputable ATOY lists for 2011, so based on that the sky's the limit, I guess.

    Anyone who says Mazzy Star was bad are basically confirming that they have bad taste, they were awesome. I saw Yuck and thought they were pretty good as well, I love their guitarist's work. The Growlers were pretty good also but they probably had the most underwhelming performance I saw over the weekend, they didn't sound bad, they just didn't seem to have the energy, the performance felt a little phoned in. Luckily I did my research before the festival so I didn't get stuck seeing any actual BAD bands.

    Sounds like you're bitter about being called out. I'd never really listened to AWOLNATION but I rather enjoyed myself during their set. The crowd seemed pretty into it and reacted positively throughout the performance.

    LOL! That's why I stay away from the mainstream acts and just watch underground dj's drop some funky fresh new tunes. Instead of listening to the same crap these mainstream djs have been playing for the past 4 years and to stay away from all the bros.

    WALLPAPER was the worst band I saw. Those fucking drums.

    Mind you, I avoided AWOLNATION. It was because some kid at the pool where we rent our condo was talking about them. The kid seemed like an idiot, but, perhaps because I'm a bigger idiot, I listened to their album on the way to the festival and thought it sucked. So I avoided them because it was clear they would suck.

    Greg Ginn was weird but cool. Not awful.

    And pretty much most of the Sahara sucked as well. The Mojave is the new Sahara. Subfocus and Modeselektor were better than almost anything I saw in the Sahara. (I liked Nero and Zedd.)

    Amon Tobin was also weird but not awful.
    Coachella is a place beyond conventional geography, a time not measured in hours or minutes, an experience, a state of mind, an attitude, and a holy form of expression. The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is an annual festival put on by Goldenvoice in Indio, CA. Please don't confuse the two.

    What kind of limp-dick comeback is that? Shoo Fly, Don't bother me...

    Anyway, the reason I say they is because of her accompanying band of teenage looking people, who all looked like some mash-up of the characters in The Breakfast Club. It wasn't interesting, it wasn't good, and when I say not good, I mean there was nothing desirable about what they presented.

    Besides, what exactly does "critically acclaimed" count for? Hell, people 'in the know' thought the last Spoon and Yeasayer albums were good, and that Justice's Audio Video Disco was a 'bad prog record...'

    Seriously, WALLPAPER was fucking stupid. I said to my friends, "This is fucking stupid" and then we all left.

    I think for me, personally, SBTRKT was the most disappointing. I like them/him alright, but not to the point of cutting out of Bon Iver to catch their whole set at my friend's urging, which was a bad idea and not worth it whatsoever. It started out bad with a disappointing rendition of my favorite song of theirs, Hold On (just sing the fucking melody properly next time!) and didn't improve from there one bit. Thankfully, I've seen Bon Iver do an incredible full set only a few months ago, otherwise it would have been a disaster of a decision. But then again, but for having seen Bon Iver already recently, there's no fucking way I'd skip any part of that set for SBTRKT.

    Now that you mention it, the Onion Rings from the Mangler's Meltdown truck are badass, and only 3 dollars... you should hit those up, you know, if you're going.

Since I am going both weeks, I will see completely different bands the second week with zero repeats, hopefully in the front row.
    i went back and forth from stage to stage and saw complete sets of plenty of bands, and still managed to make it front row to At the Drive In, which also made me front row for the snoop/dre set...youre just not trying bud

    so what youre telling me is you spend $300 for a festival with over 100 bands and you just choose to stick by one stage the whole time??? you either dont really enjoy music or are just completely comfortable with wasting your $$$

    and fyi heres the list of all bands i was front row for:

    explosions in the sky/outdoor (people were talkin em up all day so i checked em out, plus refused was right after so it was a win-win)
    refused/outdoor (but then i joined the pit as soon as we opened it up)
    arctic monkeys/main stage (not really a big fav of mine but they put on a great show)
    feist/outdoor (first time seeing them, man theyre badass)
    SUB FOCUS/mojave (dope ass set)
    Dear Hunter (sick band, crowd wasnt really big though yet, they were early friday)
    SebastiAn/Sahara (never heard of him til friday, definitely had some fun in there)
    Death Grips/Mojave (sick ass grooves, the drummer was too sick)
    The Rapture/Mojave (met a real cool girl here, i got her # and we met up later that night)
    Zeds Dead/Sahara ( i honestly went cuz of the pulp fiction reference haha, never heard em til that day)
    VISION/sahara (its not NOISIA haha,theres no A, its an upside down V...then flip it) .....at least thats what several people told me haha
    Beats Antique/Mojave (so fucking glad i wandered to this tent at this time, what a sickass groovy band)
    Flux Pavilion/Doctor P/sahara (i had no idea someone was stabbed until today)
    Gotye/mojave (ive only heard that one song before, but these girls i was camping with wanted to check em out and we planned on meeting up to roll some jays)
    At The Drive In/Main stage (ahhhhh!!!!!!! this was my "radiohead",so stoked i got a last minute wristband....refused and atdi were definitely on my top bands to see)
    Dre/Snoop/Eminem/Wiz/50 Cent/Ghost Tupac/Warren G/main stage (i was already up front for ATDI, so i just stayed where i was at...ghost tupac was crazy, but a lil creepy too haha)


    so again, you really dont try too hard man
