    I understood Billy Joe Armstrong (Green Day) having a music stand while covering for the Replacements lead singer.
    Some of the biggest artists in the world have been using teleprompters onstage for 20+ years.

    IIRC, he didn't really sing, more mumbled along, and the chick on stage picked it up when he couldn't even do that.

    I really liked the album but I thought Jagwar Ma was horrendous. Honestly one of the worst sets I've ever seen at Coachella. Left after three songs

    I was there Weekend 1 as well, with no real plan to see Jagwar Ma. I ended up going because one of my friends really wanted to see their set. I'm glad I went. I thought they were outstanding live. Maybe give them a second look?
    I arrived in America's airport with clothings, US dollars, and a jar of gypsy tears to protect me from AIDS.

    The Cult were sadly the worst thing all weekend.

    I'm with Ajo209 and kellybuck99: I thought Shlohmo was quite good, and Jagwar Ma outstanding (in fact, near the top of my list for the festival). Both weekends.

    Interesting how people -- ostensibly into similar music (else why be at Coachella catching these acts?) -- can have such opposite reactions to performances.

    I mean, I can see being "meh -- didn't do that much for me" or suchlike, but to have actually found Shlohmo "awful" and, especially, Jagwar Ma "horrendous... one of the worst sets I've ever seen at Coachella" does not compute. Like, at all. Particularly since spence liked Jagwar Ma's album.

    I'm not trying to gainsay spence's or nyarlathotoats' (holy shit that's a mouthful!) or mikeoley's reaction's to these acts. No doubt you experienced them as negatively as you said, and are wondering how the hell others like myself found them to be so good, even outstanding. Amazing to me just how wide the gulf can be in how we experience the same thing.

    People are weird, every last damn one of us.

    To be fair, it's kind of unprofessional and unfair to the artists to ask for pictures backstage where they are supposed to be able to relax and be free from the crowd and fans. I've worked at a festival before, and the policy for the staff is that you can ask for pictures when they're outside the backstage area and amongst the crowd, but don't do it in their private space backstage, by using your all-access privileges. I agree with that policy, because artists definitely deserve some peace and quiet for some of the day.

    Honestly, do you blame him? The dude has come out with something like 11 or 12 albums, I think, with Illmatic being his very first when he was 18. He's fuckin' 40 now. You try and remembering and retaining all of that material. I bet it's immensely difficult. I doubt that he was reading it the whole time, but simply used it as a safety net in case he forgot a line or two.
