Coachella 2010 Day Three Report – Pavement, Thom Yorke, Gorillaz, and more

Plus: Phoenix, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Deerhunter, Florence and the Machine, and others

Apr 20, 2010

Day three of Coachella 2010 more than made up for a lackluster day two, with set after set of strong artists and ending with perhaps the three best performances of the whole festival, all in a row: Pavement, Thom Yorke, and Gorillaz. It would have been nice if the wealth of great artists had been spread out a little bit more over the three days, but then again, Sunday wouldn't have been so strong if they had scheduled it that way. Here's what I saw on the last day of Coachella: Local Natives, Owen Pallett, Mayer Hawthorne, Deerhunter, Florence and the Machine, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jonsi, Spoon, Phoenix, Pavement, Thom Yorke, and Gorillaz.

Coachella 2010 Day 3 Recap

Jónsi and Thom Yorke Steal My Heart

Apr 20, 2010

The final day of my maiden Coachella voyage I learned an important lesson: after two packed days, less is more. While I danced to Phoenix, got slanted and enchanted with Pavement, caught Gorillaz's "animated" set, and enjoyed bits of performances by Owen Pallet and Deerhunter, it was two frontmen on break from their high profile bands that truly caught my attention: Jónsi and Thom Yorke.

Muse bring explosive live show to Coachella Festival

MGMT, Gossip, Faith No More round out Day 2

Apr 18, 2010

Muse drew one of the biggest crowds of the Coachella Festival to their explosive Saturday-night set. The band's recent slew of arena shows around the U.S. and the Coachella crowd's rapturous reaction indicate that the English trio are finally on their way to becoming as big Stateside as they are in the U.K. More

Coachella 2010 Day Two Report – Camera Obscura, Muse, MGMT, Hot Chip, and more

Plus Edward Sharpe, Dirty Projectors, The xx, Devo, The Dead Weather, and others

Apr 18, 2010

Day two of Coachella 2010 alas offered few highlights. This year Coachella has put way too many great artists on Sunday's bill, which will inevitably lead to a lot of Sophie's Choice-like moments of picking between which favorite artists to see. Whereas Saturday's bill suffered from a lack of must see artists, there was no shortage of artists worth checking out, it's just that few of them delivered. Matters were not helped by the fact that the best set I saw was also the first set I saw. Almost everything underwhelmed after that. More

Apr 18, 2010

Day two started out much like day one, in fulltilt. Despite a bevy of physical ailments left over from yesterday's marathon, making it to Camera Obscura's set on time was worth another painful sprint across the field. However day two was light on the heavy hitters, and after the initial close call, I didn't have to hustle to see sets from Beach House, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Hot Chip, MGMT, and Muse.

Vampire Weekend, LCD Soundsystem kick off Coachella Festival 2010

The desert festival gets off to a chaotic start

Apr 17, 2010

The 2010 Coachella Festival kicked off yesterday (April 16) in a chaotic fashion, with massive crowds making it difficult to get onto and off of the grounds and challenging to catch close-up glimpses of the bands. An Icelandic volcano also threw a wrench into the works, making it impossible for artists including The Cribs and Bad Lieutenant to fly from England to California to perform. That said, stellar sets by Vampire Weekend, Them Crooked Vultures and La Roux, among others, made fighting through the crowds and braving the heat worthwhile. More

Coachella 2010 Day One Report - Yeasayer, Grizzly Bear, Fever Ray, LCD Soundsystem, and more

Plus Sleigh Bells, Echo & the Bunnymen, Vampire Weekend, She & Him, and others

Apr 17, 2010

Coachella 2010 began under the cloud of an erupting volcano. Several of the European artists playing this year had to cancel their Coachella appearances due to the Icelandic volcano eruption grounding all flights from the U.K. and other parts of Europe. So day one of Coachella was greeted with the news that we wouldn't be seeing Frightened Rabbit, Delphic, The Cribs (with Johnny Marr), or Gary Numan after all. And only a few days earlier Mew had already cancelled due to illness. So this year's festival was already starting with some losses, Mew and Delphic probably being the most unfortunate ones. But while there were few artists playing Coachella 2010 who I both hadn't seen before and was dying to see (Pavement being one of them), the lineup was still rigged with enough great artists so that I had little time to eat and take breaks between bands. Here's what I saw during day one. More

Confession: despite my various musical exploits, this is my first year at Coachella. And in spite of various friends' threats to paint a "V" on my forehead and subject me to an unspeakable hazing process (that's standard...right?), I spent the week leading up to the festivities feeling not unlike an over-sugared toddler on Christmas Eve. Day one's notable loot: Sleigh Bells, Yeasayer, Passion Pit, Grizzly Bear, and Fever Ray. More

Coachella Set Times Announced… Where’s Mew?

Band Bows Out Due to “Unforeseen Health Issues”

Apr 13, 2010

Last night, Coachella released set times for this year's festival (this weekend, April 16th-18th). While we were busy agonizing over the inevitable conflicts (Charlotte Gainsbourg vs. Jónsi? Local Natives vs. Owen Pallet? Sly and Family Stone vs. Phoenix? C'mon!), one thing quickly became clearUnder the Radar favorites Mew (previously announced to play on Saturday) were no longer on the list. Today the band released a statement via their MySpace, confirming that their absence from the schedule was no mere typo. More
