well just flew back into town after 3 amazing days and there is so much to tell got to see around 50 bands but ill condense it into a god litle read:
first the experience and tips for future coachella goers:
get there early. got there around noon each day. soaked it all in traffic not a problem.
the vibe was amazing so many good people had only 2 rude people encounters and both were from england. i guess they are used the mud and crap at european festivals.
the heat. day 1 was ok day 2 was tough had to sit for a while cuz i just got heat exhausted. day 3 was perfect hot but with a breeze.
beer gardens were very cool. clsoe to stages so i could hear the music while soaking in a beer
OK NOW THE MUSIC:
much love to the promoters. great selection of artists!
the noisettes: they kicked it off for me and it was a fun set. god way to start coachella.
satellite party actually enjoyed the set. good job..
amy winehouse another fun set. she is not a polished performer but it was a fun set and has a amazing voice. great backing band.
faithless so much fun dancing and hearing them live is a must! great vibe.
band of the night: peeping tom listen im a big mike patton fan but their set blew me away and i wasnt expecting to be blown away like that. amazing set and the band was tight and it all worked perfectly patton has grown into a great frontman.
downers of the night:
of montreal: just didnt feel it. they started it out slow and never got it back. we left.
peaches: novelty act at best. boring.
bjork its just not good for me to almost fall asleep. she would be amazing in a club setting or in a tent just didnt work for me.
phoarohe monch: solid band and the vibe was cool. really surprised. good set:
ozomotli: great band had alot of fun dancing to them.
!!! good live band alot of potential. solid set.
regina spektor very cool girl. great voice good songs.
mstrkrft great vibe and did a solid set.
rhcp what the fuck happened to this band. kiedis looks bored and they are going through the motions so disappointed. they lost their vibe... total top 40 band.
the arcade fire it wasnt a disaster but i expected more cuz of the hype they didnt show it. they have the songs that could become concert anthems but they are not there yet but still have alot of potential.
fountains of wayne zzzzzzzzzzzzz no vibe at all. lazy band..
ratm they were a little rusty at times. last 30 min of show was epic. overall it was great to see them rock again!
lily allen why? well i was drunk and had fun just listen to pop songs with a girl who hates men attitude. cool set.
kaiser chiefs enjoyed the set. solid and had alot of fun listening to them.
the roots; great hip hop band.
willie nelson i was gonna watch only 5 min ended up watching about 30 min cool mutha fucka right there.
Mika good band and good songs had the elton john/freddie mercury thing going. good job.
the coup another surprise. dug the vibe. looking forward to seeing them at rick the bells.
crowded house fucking awful. sorry i tried.
lupe fiasco boring has alot to learn.
overall i had a amazing time and will come back again next year! love to u all.
