Swervedriver @ Coachella

The foursome's reunion for Coachella (they were a late add to the lineup) was largely unheralded, except by a few passionate fans who were keenly tuned into the band's recipe of guitar riffs and effects.

Swervedriver's set before a one-third-full Mojave Tent on Sunday afternoon certainly ranked as a triumph artistically, as Adam Franklin and mates bathed the faithful in angsty roaring and subtler noodling. Ever stoic as a frontman, Franklin remained expressionless throughout (save for a smile of acknowledgment to a friend sidestage), but the music and the obvious joy with which drummer Jez Hindmarsh played spread smiles all around.

Tickets are still on sale for their two NYC shows in June. More tour dates HERE. Photos & video from Coachella below....

I was disappointed in the Coachella set, though I wasn't sure if it was the fact that they'd played no warm-up shows prior or because they'd been put in a tent that was too big for their crowd. Still, I love this band - And they were so loud they fucked up the left speakers for Spiritualized.

Can't wait to see the guys reunited when they stop by Lee's Palace in Toronto, Canada. They sound amazing on these youtube vids!
