Thread: Biggest Disapointment?

    Default Biggest Disapointment?

    I had a great time and enjoyed so many amazing shows, but my one disappointment was Angus and Julia Stone not playing "Big Jet Plane".

    What was your biggest let down/disappointment of the festival?

    Wire.

    Allegedly their show at The Echoplex a couple years ago was incredible. They really phoned it in.

    Odd Future's set and Cee Lo. Kind of crazy they conflicted only to both disappoint. That's what Cee Lo gets for breaking out a fucking Journey song.

    Cee-Lo, for being late, complaining about his time slot, singing like he was not at all into it and just being an asshole to his band leaving them on stage playing a shit Journey song

    Maybe Odd Future too, but I had a feeling it might suck in that setting.

    Animal Collective! I was so excited to se them. None of my friends wanted to go, so I was solo. Even with plenty help from my other friends I couldn't get into their set. I tried though, stayed for 5 of their "songs". Wish I would have left earlier.

    scala getting an awful set time (sound bleeding from every stage was expected, and midnite was very intimate, but had this been at 3 or 4pm it would have been in a packed tent), watching empire of the sun instead of watching all of animal collective.. and skipping most of leftfield for beetroots live (yeah, i said it).. GV letting main and sahara go past curfew every night (and outdoor on friday) yet made daedelus stop at 1258 even though his set started 20min late due to tech probs. oh, and the sound bleed from the energy factory is worse than the do lab ever was..
    FRI: Squarepusher - Nero - Flying Lotus - Keys N Krates - AC/DC - Alabama Shakes
    SAT: Swans - Gaslamp Killer Experience - Andrew McMahon - Antemasque - LIGHTS
    SUN: Gesaffelstein - Claude VonStroke - St. Vincent - Panda Bear - Dubfire - Annie Mac

    Warpaint. They sang off key and I left after 2 songs.
    Chem Bros - too tired to wait around for their set.

    Everyone who is calling Animal Collective a disappointment was obviously sober. Those who weren't got one of the best psychedelic experiences of their lives.

    #1 Chems running late- I got through a bit of Galvanize and was scraping bottom hard by that point so I left. I knew theyd' get short-shifted too with the late start. A real shame. Glad I have seen them several times before.

    #2 Animal Collective- really wanted to love their set but did not.

    #3 One Day As a Lion - poor mix and not a memorable song in there from the five or so I heard.

    You were warned about Skrillex. I saw the fight ODD FUTURE had with security. I bet is was better than their stage performance.

    Probably Broken Social Scene. Probably the most boring band I saw all weekend. Except I'll admit I was extremely happy they played Anthems.

    There's nothing Coachella related to do tonight. Someone open the Henry Fonda and let people get in for free with their wristbands to hear the do lab and view video screens of performance highlights and Mike's photos.
    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.

    ^^^ Word. All the hella cool talented DJs were put in the tiny Oasis Dome, while Sahara had the same old shit going on and was just a place for all the Coachella low-lifes to congregate. The best dance sets were in the Mojave.

    city and colour not playing 'coming home'. kanye not doing 'we major', with or without nas. the black keys' sound being weird (their performance was still great). brandt brauer frick without the ensemble.
    it makes me forget to relax. with a heart full of holes, and a head full of dreams. with a mouthful of honey, and a fistful of bees.
