don't even get me started. Saw her in '08. Waded deep into the crowd so I was in for the duration. WORST fucking coachella set ever. She sounds good on a cd but really how can you be so bad live...
QFT! and the coolest thing was he didn't try and do it all himself/ do a shitty job. Him & his crew put on an AMAZING set as all you peeps that were there can attest.
Guess you weren't there...your bad, more room for the rest of us.
I'll walk to my car over sitting in in it wanting to fall asleep w/ a/c, comfy seats and tunes anyday. Glad you made it out okay. Sat/ Sun I was prepared for a parkfest that never happened.
haha all that deadgrass sure did a number on resurrecting my allergies.
so was parking waaay better this year or did I just fluke out? Last year we had one 2 hour + night leaving but this year...
What is up w/ that? So many peeps bitching about stuff. If you can't have a totally awesome time down there in the desert rocking out to like a zillion bands playing every flavor of music, maybe...
din't that dude on the accordian during SOL rock? he actually made accordians look cool, he rocked it!!
Well if you spent your time grooving to bands from the beer tent, my sympathies for you............
that's why coachella rules- it's a totally special place every damn year. Always on my highlight reel!!!
more w/ the lights? he had one of the coolest lightshows in the Sahara.
awesome writeup!! and I love the dedication you had to see the bands youwanted to be front & center for by plowing like 5 hours early. totally cool!
Freeland was one of my beautiful surprises on the weekend. He fucking killed it!
My condolences Sarah. I hope you've got some good support right now.
I just love how diverse everyone's top 10's are. Isn't it amazing how many great sets there were over the weekend and the variety of fave acts boggles the mind. where else could you rock out to...
haha, so funny and so true cuz that's what I had thought & hoped for beforehand. I def liked what I heard- dude is wonderfully fucked up and I'm so glad he shared!!
He was amazing. I only saw part of the set- had to leave cuz my friend felt like she was gonna have a seizure (so you know it was GOOD!!)- but yeah he's an acquired taste for sure. Sahara tent was...
nope, you were better off @ whatever set you were at instead of being in the Sahara thinking 'Why TF am I sticking around?'
2. Roger Waters
3. Fatboy Slim

c'mon man, that's what the Purell stations are for.
Dude, Bonnaroo is pretty awesome! Totally different from Coachella but very awesome.
Bingo! A few years late but tell me will anyone be in a bad mood when Born Slippy starts???
YEAH. My first reaction to the lineup was "huh" re: the headliners, and once I read the whole thing I was totally stoked! Fatboy, Aesop, DCC, Kraftwerk, Roger, Gogol, Chromeo, Stars, Spiritualized,...
So I know how awesome Coachella is and am going to Bonnaroo but don't know much about it aside from the bands playing, 80K peeps in attendance & pretty much mandatory camping. anyone who has been...
yeah they could proilly lose the dome. so many times @ the main stage I looked over @ the outdoor stage to see if that where the sound bleed was coming from- uh uh, it was the dome & that india tent...
bummer dude/ dudette. I caught Peaches- totally dug it cuz she worked her ass off for the tepid crowd & was funny to boot- & the saw the tail end of JAMC and was lucky enough to catch the one tune...
bingo. Weezer was a letdown- zero enthusiasm or charisma as they churned through the hits. but standing in the same close to the stage spot for Massive Attack (with Elizabeth Frasier!!!) & "the not...
saw lots of great ones:
a dude in an Audioslave tee,
"I love Coachella, I want to f*ck it"
"Jesus is coming, but he pulls out"
This is my church
This is where I heal my hurts
God is a DJ
was def cool in the Sahara.
anyome know what the artists actually make for playing Coachella? You hafta figure there's $ 16 million in tickets sold & the budget for the event was $15 mil plus. They also expect to profit mid...
what? where & when? and who is in the band- page, plant, bohman's kid & ??
it'd be cool to see the Stones play Coachella but between their fee & all the rich SoCal peeps gobbling up & scalping...
dude I love your posts. Deadpan over the 'Net might not work w/ the younguns'but us jaded rockers love it.
Anyone else blown away by how cool that was. The first few notes & then suddenlythe whole crowd starts singing the entire song? A song that came out in 1973!
I think they were more stoked than...
not having to wait for a portapottie ever was a total treat. That NEVER happens at a concert.
all the funny tee shirts were a hoot too:
"I love Coachella, I want to F*ck it"
"Jesus is coming,...
man o' man. Unless you got burned by the Will Call line, got beat up or robbed or had to get medical attention you really can't complain. I mean if 3 days rocking in the desert to such an awesome...
cool. I knew there'd be some crazy f*ckers like you. If they're your fave, it's gotta be done. Very impressive.
w3rd! 2 days, 3 days or a Coachella week it's a good time. But yeah I guess if you're camping they'd need a lot more shade & water otherwise peeps would start dying.
We caught the latter part of Sonic Youth to get in close for the next show (DJ Shadow). As we're getting closer peeps are leaving Sonic Youth and I barely see this dude coming towards me whose...
How many other people saw these guys?
They were so hilarious- also wearing fanny packs, dancing & bandanas striking all these Charlie's Angels poses. For how many girls were having pictures taken...
yeah. I'm surprised at the hate. Her set was a pleasant surprise & totally entertaining. she was working her ass off up there!!! and the start of the set was perfect!
It's worth a shot calling or (e)mailing Goldenvoice about it. I've heard in the past they've been resonably responsive to the occasional glitch in the music experience. I saw that line & felt for...
rodrigo y gabriela
I'd never heard of the first 2 before and they blew me away. #3 was the closest to what I was hoping for from the bands I was stoked to see.
