Last Thursday, before heading out to the desert to take on Coachella, Jenny Lewis played a Coachella sideshow at the Echoplex. Fans were treated to songs from her new album The Voyager, as well as the songs that made us love Lewis in the first place. Dazzling in her now iconic pantsuit, the singer-songwriter enchanted […]

Florence + The Machine gives transcendent Coachella performance

Damn it is good to see Florence + The Machine on the main stage at Coachella. Another of the seemingly endless Coachella legacy performers, Florence Welch definitely outshined the evening headliner Drake, and was probably one of the two or three best performances of the entire weekend. Welch’s energy was sky high. She ran across […]

Drake doesn’t live up to Coachella-ending bill (neither does Madonna)

Photo courtesy of Coachella Let me preface this review of his Sunday main stage closing Coachella set by saying I’m not the biggest Drake fan. That being said, I had high expectations headed into it, and they weren’t quite met by the mega star rapper’s performance. With all the features on his tracks over the […]

Radiohead’s Philip Selway brings life to stellar Coachella set

One thinks he would have been better attended had the Coachella schedule simply read “Drummer for Radiohead,” but despite playing to a rather sparse crowd at the Gobi tent on Sunday, Philip Selway brought to life a stellar set. You could have counted up all the people in the room by the time he completed […]

Ryan Adams provides Sunday’s alt-rock vibes and witty banter

Most of Sunday’s performances at Coachella were electronic flavored and the main headliner Drake was hip-hop, but festival stalwart Ryan Adams made it clear rock ‘n’ roll is here to stay. Adams poked fun at the noise bleed from across the way and provided sarcastic banter in between performing songs from his fantastic self-titled album […]

MØ turns an early Sunday at Coachella into MØchella

Despite an early Sunday set, breakthrough Danish singer MØ performed to a packed Gobi tent and was one of the early favorites of the day. Joining MØ on stage at one point was Swedish singer Elliphant and the two performed their song “One More” to much appreciation. MØ has seen her profile raise drastically in recent months […]

Gesaffelstein flips bird to Coachella’s set time limit

The word on the street is that Gesaffelstein‘s two Coachella performances will be his last live festival sets ever. Sunday’s set in the Mojave tent nailed home the thought that this should be sad news for everyone. Providing one of the best light shows of the entire weekend, Gesaffestein’s crowd was serviceable considering many people […]
