    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Assuming "say" means "saw," I actually don't remember. I went in 1999--it may have been Morrissey.

    Super Furry Animals in '99. They came on before Modest Modest and I had no idea at the time who they were. It was during the Demons tour and they were fking awesome. I went on to see them 3 more times over years and credit Coachella for having learned about them in the first place. Plus, Rhys is way hot.

    Another memorable moment that was a first and also a last was seeing the Art of Noise who I had no idea was at the festival. "Moments in Love" started to play. It was one of my favorite songs of theirs although they kinda killed it by trying to make it a "dancy" version by just well....speeding it up to *channels Spaceballs* Ludicrous Speed. It sounded like a chipmunk on speed was running laps on top of your record player. It was however the first time I'd seen the Art of Noise and most likely the last opportunity I'll ever have to see them again.

    pretty girls make graves in '04. however, i have to admit, i didn't have a clue who they were at the time, that was all my sister's influence.

    I "heard" Section Quartet while feasting upon a fruit salad (which was half cucumber, and that's not even a fruit), then one of out group departed to see dios. After that, the rest of us enjoyed the shade for a few more minutes, before doing a little exploring. We saw a couple of the "art installations" and peeked inside the film festival tent. Wonder why we didn't get the DVD we saw everyone with later that night, grrr. Anyway, we retreated to the shaded area in front of the Outdoor Theater concessions and "heard" Howie Day (terrible), and the Stills. Then my group lost another member, and we went to the Gobi tent and caught the last 10 minutes of Q and Not U. It was so unbearably hot and crowded inside that tent, and all the 8-foot-tall people ruined every possible sightline, so we left the tent, and my friend gave up on Beck and left for the main stage.

    So technically Q and not U. Shame that seeing Beck was such a difficult task, especially since it meant missing Trail of Dead and Death Cab for Cutie. Oh well.

    Cool Re: Who was the first band you ever say at Coachella?

    The Dandy Warhols, 2001.

    They were one of the biggest reasons for me wanting to go to the Festival. It was weird seeing them in the early afternoon but they were still pretty hot.

    I think I have that DVD, but I've never watched it. It's the one with that "Bodysong" thing on it, right? I don't know why I haven't watched it. Lazy I guess.

    I'm so glad the board was able to convince you to come down that year. Even though our flags didn't quite turn out as expected and we almost DIED TWICE while getting there and back there was a lot of fun to be had.

    Now I'm wondering if I have the old lineup times somewhere because I really don't have any idea who the first band I saw was (in 99). Bis? Morrissey? dunno. I remember the first band I saw when I came BACK to coachella in 04 was the Section Quartet.

    Blonde Redhead in '01, though I can't say I was too impressed. I think I left after a few minutes to catch the Dandy Warhols...

    Mine was DJ Icon in 04. That was also the first time I had heard a DJ spin before. Then Juana Molina, then Dios, then Section Quartet, then Howie Day. The first band I actually wanted to see was the Stills. They were great.

    Oh. To locate your tent? Good idea. I'll write that one down with the lock, the tent-fan, and the glowsticks.

    Section Quartet in 2004 also. I enjoyed them even more in 2006 because by then I learned that they go better with either teriyaki bowl or spicy pie.

    pretty girls make graves in 2004....

    a totally random sighting...they were pretty good but i think we just wanted to sit down and catch our breath after getting in....i think broken social scene might have been playing after them and that's why we were there...

    Section Quartet 2004 was the first band i heard, as i was coming in, whereas The Stills were the first band i saw. Good set too, as when they played in London they just knocked out the first album in track order.
