    THom YOrke has a far better voice than Pharrell.

    Thom Yorke's farts sound better than Pharrell.

    Thom Yorke could wear Pharrell's overrated hat better than Pharrell himself.

    Yeah, I was hoping for something special here. It never happened.

    Dum Dum Girls had technical difficulties, it was sweltering and I got bored and bolted for Title Fight, which was the right call because it was a hard rocking, high energy set.

    Awaiting the "Hey, her boobies were on the big screen a lot!" argument.

    i only saw the first 3 tracks of Title Fight but they sounded amazing. Left to see A$AP Ferg which I regret. that was probably the worst set I watched all the way through.

    Weekend 2:

    I didn't see anything terrible this year. I think my biggest disappointment was CHVRCHES because they were one of the acts I was most excited for and I thought they sounded a little lackluster, I still enjoyed them though.

    My friend had an all access pass, and when she asked the lead singer of CHVRCHES to take a picture with her, she said no.

    Coming from someone who's seen CHVRCHES twice at their own show and had a blast both times, they were a total letdown Weekend 2. They started way late and cut out some of their best songs (I saw their setlist), and they were also given a crappy set time to begin with. Late evening in the Mojave would've been perfect, but without their light show and being in 90-degree heat, they were far less exciting to watch than usual.

    DDGs got a lot better after you left. It was almost as if they said, whew, that asshole's gone, let's turn on the other amps and really get going here.

    The only one that left me shaking my head was Bryan Ferry. His singing sounded just decrepit, and wasn't digging the setlist. We left and heard he started playing the good songs right afterwards. Oh well...

    If some random people came up to you all the time and asked you to take a picture of them with you, would you really say yes every time? More power to the lady from CHVRCHES that she can actually tell people no.

    I wouldn't say I saw anything on a level of Uffie-bad, or even just not good, so I guess I was pretty lucky this year. The only thing I really wasn't feeling was Banks, but I think I just more that I wasn't digging the music than the performance itself.

    At least she said no. One year I saw Zooey Deschanel talking to friends backstage. I stood and waited politely for a few minutes and not interrupt the conversation. As soon as they were done talking I started asking for a photo and Zooey literally ran to her tour bus. Another time I tried to ask for a photo with Pelle of The Hives he just completely ignored me and walked away.

    I enjoyed about 90% of what I saw this year, so I don't have much to complain about.

    I really wasn't into Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. Maybe because I had heard such good things about them live, they were just, meh.

    I don't think it's reasonable to expect celebrities to be 100% present for their fans 100% of the time. Sometimes you just don't want to take a picture with a complete stranger. In general, CHVRCHES seems to be pretty good at reaching out to their fans, I think a lot better than most bands.

    I didn't go to Coachella this year, but watched the Pharrell broadcast on AXS TV and quite enjoyed it. Though I do agree that his voice pretty much never sounds good live.

    We sprinted over after the last note of the Replacements' set and caught the last 4 and a half songs.

    No complaints about the singing or song selection to close out the show(weekend one) but the sound seemed altogether muddy (vs Replacements on the Outdoor) minutes earlier.

    I did the same thing and thought the last 4 songs of Bryan Ferry were incredible, one of my favorite moments of the fest.

    I wouldn't say they were terrible, but I thought the Dum Dum Girls set was pretty disappointing. The sound was muddy and they lacked energy, it was also hot as fuck outside.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    Dum Dum Girls isn't really that good of a live band, but it did get better as the set progressed. For whatever reason, some bands just can't fully harness their recorded sound in a live setting.

    Julian Casablancas was fucking horrendous. What was that shit? I left after the first song with a look on my face directed towards the people that were staying for the next song that was a mixture of amusement, horror, and pure confusion.

    Pharrell was the worst for me. Left after the first 3 songs. On my way out, people were looking at me like i was out of my mind or something. I thought the guy was suppose to perform. Not just stand around moving his mouth to his own songs.

    Has to be Julian's set - met up a genuinely nice person at his set who, 10 minutes in, was cursing his name and begging to leave. I kind of dug it in a "what's gonna happen next" kind of way.

    For everyone hating on DDG, they got the short end of the stick with playing on the Outdoor at 2:30 - Lost Boys and Girls Club still sounded good.

    7.23 - White Lung // 8.2-3 - HARD Summer // 8.7 - Jagwar Ma // 8.8 - Flume // 8.10 - Warpaint // 8.23-24 - FYF Fest // 9.5 - Feed Me // 10.8 - Kasabian // 10.12 - Speedy Ortiz // 10.25 - The Afghan Whigs // 10.31 - QotSA Halloween Show! // 4.10-12 - Coachella 2015 W1

    I think that was his goal. He's trying to be rebellious now. I actually did like his set because I'm one of the few people who's listened to and actually likes the new stuff. And I think the fact that he didn't play Daft Punk when he said he would is kind of hilarious.
