    Default The Violent Femmes Were One Of The Tightest Bands I Have Ever Seen At Coachella

    Seriously, how is no one else talking about this? They played fucking perfectly, no bullshit downtime between songs, haven't been together in 7 years and not one wrong note.

    I'm not really a fan of them on record, but this was one of my favorite sets. Just amazing. I love the acoustic bass guitar as well.

    They were fantastic, but you say this like it's a surprise.

    Loved it! They were on my wish list for this year and I felt so grateful when I saw them on the line up. Could not have been a better set. Sounded amazing, awesome crowd, everyone singing and dancing and happy to be there. Dream come true!

    Agreed. Never got totally into them while in college in the 80's, as I should have, but they killed it. This was one of the most fun sets of the whole weekend.

    I'm still letting everything sink in, but they may very well have been my favorite set of the festival.

    THis was definitely in my top 5 sets of the weekend and I am also not a huge fan of their records. Saw them at BFD in like 2004 and remembered having a great time so was looking forward to checking them out again and they gave the most perfect festival performance imaginable. I read somewhere they did their entire first album front to back in its entirety. Epic good times.

    I wonder how much they spent to have a horn section join them for like 2 songs.

    They were one of the best acts of the weekend on the stream. Sounded good, had energy, played the old hits first, what more could anyone want for an afternoon reunion band? The other reunion bands from the 90's could learn a few things.
    "How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas? It doesn't matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimpse of what exists for those who can become open to it."

    This was in my top 3 sets of the weekend. Probably number two. And initially was the set I was most looking forward to. Just awesome.

    They absolutely dominated that set! So perfect in everyway. Sunset, band energy, crowd energy, setlist, good feeling right as the sun was setting.

    Watching that video, makes me want to be back there so bad.

    I was really astonished. I'd expected them to suck in that way that older acts that haven't done much in a long time can; but they were great, and it was obvious they were really enjoying it, too.

    Plus - they played their first album in it's entirety, which was just awesome.

    Playing an album in its entirely is a huge gimmick and unorginal now days yet at the same time was really surprising for a Coachella day time aet.
