I dont know who this guy is but he sounds like someone who goes in to shows WANTING to not enjoy them. A lot of stuff he said wasn't good was great. No one liked Tune Yards live? I thought they were captivating and everyone around me (and I was in the back) was dancing. And from a musician's point of view it was really cool watching her creating the loops live. I could go on but what's the point
Also, the fact that he doesn't think people are capable of reading entire paragraphs shows his condescending attitude.
Coachella 2010, 2011, 2012-2, 2013-2
...And I realize Bon Iver is not EDM ("electronic dance music" for the uninitiated). But if you want to survive the deejay onslaught, that’s what you’ve got to be, different, unique, special.
Completely wrong about the Tuneyards. That gal's got talent. Most people I talked to really enjoyed their set. One of the more original sets of Coachella. I never heard of them before, but when I got home downloaded a bunch of her shit.
That guy is a fucking clown. I want those two minutes of my life back I wasted reading that piss poor writeup.
"And with so much more noise coming from every other stage, the cacophony made me want to move on, which I did."
And everyone was happy.
He needed to see some more shows, starting with Gary Clark Jr.

That guy is dull.

I'm still partial to:

Many students took advantage of spring break coinciding with Coachella’s first weekend, but some went the music festival’s second weekend, April 20 to 22. All in all, Coachella’s second weekend was much like the first, only hotter and more populated.
One of the similarities was the recreation of the Tupac hologram. Some students had hoped for a different artist, for the surprise factor to continue into the second weekend. But Tupac emerged on the stage again, and though there wasn’t a pleasant shock for the second weekers, the experience was still unforgettable.
Junior David Javidzad enjoyed his second-week experience. His personal favorites were Calvin Harris, Swedish House, and Dada Life (the last because he managed to get up front), but there weren’t many bad parts for Javidzad.
One performance he didn’t like, though, was The Weekend. “Everyone didn’t like it,” Javidzad said. “The music was louder than the microphone.”
Javidzad confirmed that there were many people and that the heat was intense, but there were people with misters to spray water, and that the size of the crowd “the way it was supposed to be. Without that, it wouldn’t live up to its theme.”
Javidzad recommended next year’s Coachella-goers bring extra money, since bringing water or food isn’t allowed. He spent $40 on water and churros each. Javidzad also recommends the waffle ice cream sandwich and the French fries, mentioning them with a grunt of satisfaction. Lastly, Javidzad warns next year’s attendees that “if you’re not prepared to get wet, you won’t have fun.” So to those already waiting to grab Coachella 2013 tickets, be ready for sweating in the heat and being sprayed with water, as they’re both part of the festival’s package experience.
Who is Bob Lefsetz, and why does he deserve his own thread?
Hmmm opinions aside, i actually like this guy's writing style.
This guy should not be seeing live music, ever.
Feist -- A rockstar with bad complexion. Didn't play 1234.
No. That guy is never right about anything at all ever. He chose the wrong socks this morning and then put them on his hands.
Interesting read...as are the articles surrounding it
