Photo: Frazer Harrison / Getty Images The Knife just seems like a band that, instead of handing out free three dimensional glasses upon purchasing a ticket to their show, you should be gifted with some sort of psychedelic drug in order to digest their set.

HAIM the darlings of Coachella day one

The aptly-described “three sisters and a mister”, Valley band HAIM rocked their set just prior to the sun setting on day one of Coachella weekend two.

The Replacements get by with a little help from their friend

Unfortunately, I missed the first 25 minutes of The Replacements because of the Grilled Cheese Truck booth that I made the mistake of stopping at to eat on Friday.

Afghan Whigs memorable for the lucky few in attendance

If a ’90s grunge band plays a kick ass show at Coachella after quietly reforming and hardly anybody was there to see it, then did it really happen? Afghan Whigs delivered a memorable performance early Friday evening at Coachella’s Mojave tent, but the crowd was disappointingly scarce. The booking was likely an homage to Coachella […]

Kate Nash makes new friends Friday at Coachella

Though her set started about five minutes late and also included a three-minute music video of sorts, once young Brit rocker Kate Nash got things going Friday early evening at Coachella, she hardly looked back. Her set at the Gobi tent kicked off with her fast-paced punk tribute “Sister” and mixed in a couple of […]
