View Full Version : Does anyone remember in 06 when Art Brut burned the fucking place down?

Probably, not. It wasnt the biggest or fullest tent, but if I had to make a top 10 list of the most amazing sets Ive seen in the 6 Coachellas Ive been to since my first in 04, this one would def be amongst them.

It takes a special something-or-other for an unknown band to play the (I believe) Gobi, last slot of the weekend, tent holding maybe 50 tired, exhausted people at the start and FINISH with a raucous crowd much, much larger dancing and singing along to songs they were only hearing for the first time just then.
Everyone was so into it that they blew past noise curfew (which takes balls when you arent Prince) by like 20 minutes. The sound dudes were yelling and freaking out and running on to stage trying to stop it all to no avail. And not only did they blow past the curfew, they played past THAT even by extending out the end crescendo of the songs in pompous Big Rawk fashion like they were AC/DC or somebody.

Just fucking ace.

Defiant, fun rock and roll that made us forget how wrecked the weekend had left us.

I raise a glass to you Art Brut, wherever the fuck ye be.

You've made some good arguments, but I'm sure there are people who will disagree with some points.

Yes, yes YEEEESSS! Saw them last week in San Diego in a half-full venue. It amazes me that Art Brut never seems to draw a big crowd. They ALWAYS come through with an awesome show. You'd think the word would have spread by now...

They closed out the Mojave, FYI. It was good fun.
