I told myself I wasn't gonna watch the stream of any bands I really wanted to see, but I couldn't help it and tuned into Refused. They sounded incredible, even better than I could have hoped. Perfect set list too. My excitement for next weekend is officially off the charts.
why do you say that?
Best set of the weekend. Best crowd of the weekend. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect show!
I really want to see a proshot video of this set
Probably the best set of the weekend that too many people missed out on
I am usually disappointed in reformed bands at festivals, but Refused were really great and that is considering I saw them a few times in the 90's. On some levels their performance at Coachella was the best I have seen them play.
they were amazing and they looked so grateful to be there. dennis was so sincere. i brought a friend not too familiar with them and he was going to stay for just a few songs. wound up being a convert and staying the whole set
i'm curious did they play any festival shows back in the day? im guessing this was probably the biggest audience they've ever played for in the USA, wondering if it's possibly their biggest show ever. either way for such a large crowd they made it feel pretty intimate
I have a decently HQ video of New Noise if anyone's interested. Had my freezing cold girlfriend stick around and record it for me as I raged. Amazing performance. So glad we stuck through the cold to watch them.
His atitude during the whole set was awesome. Talking about how great Coachella is for getting them back together and how they he felt bad for breaking up and not playing. Have a lot of respect for the guy and his band.

They killed it. Such a good time. I'm glad I made it to this set.
best coachella set i've ever seen! i had 3 people seemingly fall from the sky & knock me down as soon as thousands of people yelled "can i scream!" then i got to meet dennis later! awesome! might get another pass for next weekend just to watch them again only
they said the last time they played the u.s. it was in a basement in boston for 40 people.
They were so good!
i almost lost my shoe like 3 times and got hit in the head like 10 times. it was great!
saw Dennis on saturday at fIREHOSE and got a picture with him.
saw him again later at buzzcocks too. left him alone though lol
One of the best shows I've ever been to in my fucking life. I got emotional at the end there when he was spouting off about "staying curious".

Via LickTheLizzard. Too good to wait for him to post.
I am ready to give and receive round-house kicks.
What time did they play till? And can anyone give me an estimated time as to when they'll play New Noise? Sprinting to their show right after Black Angels finish, maybe a bit early, I can't miss this performance.
I left after New Noise to check out Amon Tobin & SHM
Yes, they just busted into it
Amon went til 1, if Refused plays the same exact set you can catch half his set
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
I could not make it long enough to see this set and I am quite disappointed in myself. I want to try to get a ticket for one of their sold out shows at Terminal 5 in a couple days.
if any set this weekend deserves the much overused "they killed it" tag, it was refused
