Coachella 2011 Day One Report – Cut Copy, Odd Future, Tame Imapala, Interpol, and more

Apr 16, 2011

Day one of Coachella 2011 displayed several improvements over last year. There was less of a crowd (even though it was sold out this year, they put more of a limitation on how many tickets could be sold). Security was tighter and parking seemed less of a pain. And it even seemed as though the Mojave and Gobi tents were a little bigger this year and able to accommodate more fans. Highlights of the day included two bands from down under and some soft rockers; where-as two notable artists stormed off the stage. More

Coachella 2011 Day 1 Recap: Kings of Leon, The Black Keys, Gayngs, Robyn, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill

Apr 16, 2011

Following numerous complaints of last year's festival being far too crowded, this year Goldenvoice the organizers of Coachella 2011 made significant changes to address that concern. A wristband with a microchip is now necessary at all time during the festival, scanned at no fewer than two checkpoints on the way into the festival. Additionally, they also sold less tickets than last year. The result of both thus far (it might just be that many attendees couldn't get Friday off from work) is a greatly improved experience. Even during headliner Kings of Leon there was plenty of room to maneuver and find a decent spot to watch the show. So in that respect, it's already a great improvement on last year. This year's music started off with an impressive array of talent, but had little in the way of jaw-dropping moments the festival has become famous for. More

SXSW Day One Recap: Casiokids, Foster the People, Gayngs, Duran Duran

March 16th, 2011

Mar 17, 2011

Day one of my first go-around at the bacchic excesses that is SXSW, I had a very important realization: there are a lot of people here. Bars, restaurants, clubs—basically anywhere with a door—opens to let artists perform. The streets are, to put it mildly, peopled. Intellectually, I knew this.  Physically I’ve not only survived, but also enjoyed, in a variety of packed festival situations. But to borrow a parlance from my hometown of Los Angeles: dude.  Here’s the kicker, even with the sea of humanity, it is still quite possible to see quality bands up close and personal. SXSW, you have my heart. More
