OutKast’s weekend one Friday headlining performance left a lot of people scratching their heads as to what they had been witness to.

The Knife at Coachella — no drugs included

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. Even in a sober mindset, The Knife’s Friday night Coachella […]

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. HAIM’s live show sounds a smidge different from their studio work. It’s more rock than R&B, a rock n roll Wilson Phillips if you will. Surprisingly, oldest sister Este […]

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. I ordered a grilled cheese and waited 20 minutes for them to make it as there were at least two dozen people still waiting for their […]

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 […]

Her set at the Gobi tent kicked off with her fast-paced punk tribute “Sister” and mixed in a couple of […]

AFI turn back the clock with benchmark performance

Ukiah, California rockers AFI brought it on Friday afternoon at Coachella weekend two on the main stage, delivering their hits like a well-placed combination from a premiere heavyweight puncher. AFI brought out the closet fan in everyone, as a well gathered audience showed up to perhaps relive some of their glory days when “Days of […]

Dum Dum Girls get their weekend two Coachella set spun right this time

The female quartet, Dum Dum Girls started off last weekend’s Coachella performance a bit rocky, but came on late and finished very strong. Weekend two, the New York City based band didn’t suffer the same early woes and spun together a tight and nicely gelled set. “Bedroom Eyes” and “Coming Down” got the loudest pops, […]
