Here are a few other things that happened at coachella day 1.

-a naked wizard stepped into my hummus platter.
-It was hot out, but luckily the cooler kept my water and tahini well chilled.
-when chemical brothers dropped the first beat, I dropped a pita triangle onto the grass but it didn't get real dirty, so I just wiped it off on my shirt.
-saw a few celebrities. (the chef at oasis was there, and the guy that works register at mamouns)

OH MY GOD CELEBRITIES LIKE MUSIC ALSO!!! MY LIFESTYLE IS VALIDATED NOW!

I am so tired of hearing about how Lauryn Hill showed up late. It's enough that she's hustlin' nostalgia...she's also stealing people's time.

dudes tattoo has apostrophes on the wrong side of the numbers

This lineup kinda sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:20 PM

Too bad the fellow with all the Coachella years tattooed on his arm doesn't know which side of the number the apostrophe is supposed to go on.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:21 PM

Next year I plan on quitting Cold Cave and doing American Nightmare and Give Up The Ghost reunions, stay tuned for those..

Posted by Wes Eisold | April 16, 2011 3:24 PM

The guy with the tattoo is a total douche. And yes, the apostrophe is on the wrong side. Dumbass.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:25 PM

Look, cut the kid a break on the apostrophes, obviously he has no meaningful or intelligent existence and has to define himself by the cool festivals he's gone to.

The 60's were so much cooler. At least we rioted back then.

OMG LOL TATTOO FAIL

+ your photographer has the shittiest taste in music, if these are the bands he went to see

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:45 PM

if you remember the 60's what are you doing on the internet?

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:47 PM

The misplaced apostrophes are literally the smallest problem with that catastrophic tat.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 3:54 PM

is that a real tat or one of those spray things they have at bar mitzvas and stuff?

@3:47 pm - if it wasn't for people who remembered the '60's, there would be no internet

ha,ha that tattoo is retarded.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 4:23 PM

no no... the apostrophes are in the right place.... those are the sizes of penis that he has taken at coachella, not the year

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 4:26 PM

woah. 11 foot coachella peen.

i have heard of like 3 of these bands

I've seen many bad tattoos and this one is right up there

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 5:02 PM

granted i havent been but it seems like coachella is really overrated. 1 hours sets from every band even the headliners. bonnaroo has music till 4am (outdoor shows at night are much better anyway) and almost every band plays a full set.

At least that dude has plans for tonight.

But what is he going to do in 2017? I would imagine he has a few more Coachellas left in him. He seems like a fan.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 5:16 PM

how can he put that tattoo on his arm like he is so proud? He missed 4 years and he claims to be such a big coachella fan?
He missed 03 04 05 and 08!

I got a tattoo of Across the Narrows...biggest mistake of my life. Hasn't been updated since '05.

i enlarged the marijuana umbrella girl picture and did not see a nip slip

California is clearly still terrible.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 8:27 PM

Something about suburban California kids dressed like 2007 hipsters really makes me cringe.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2011 8:30 PM

Great images!

Posted by Anon | April 16, 2011 8:47 PM

Yikes....that tatoo...really...makes me sad.

The real question, of course, is whether there were any ecstasy induced wizards ....

Wonder what bands tatoo bro saw? Kings of Leon, Odd Future, Robyn, Cee-Lo, Black Keys?

I see Robyn is sporting the Yo-Landi Visser haircut now.

weak crowd, weak bands and weak photos add up to one hell of a festival I regret missing
