Coachella 2012 - Day 3

"Weekend one of Coachella 2012 not only confirmed rock fans' rabid appetite for live music but reminded the music industry that the past is a lot closer than it used to be. There were no rock acts from the 1960s or early '70s on the bill. The look back was dedicated to Coachella's continuing affection for reuniting British bands from the late '70s and early '80s--this year, it was Buzzcocks, James, Madness, Pulp and Squeeze. Other reuniting bands on the bill included American alt-rock bands Firehose, Mazzy Star and At the Drive-In; and Refused, a punk group from Sweden that hadn't been heard from since 1998. One could argue that the "appearance" by the late Shakur was an admission that to become a musical force again, West Coast rap needs a resurrection. Though the beats conceived and developed by Dr. Dre, Shakur, Snoop Dogg and others are now woven into rock and pop's vocabulary, rap had little presence at Coachella 2012, save for the ingenuity of the late Sunday-night oldies show.

And if there was any doubt that electronic dance music is a dominating force, even if it's still underappreciated by the mainstream, Swedish House Mafia and Justice played the main stage. The big tent dedicated to dance music was rarely less than filled to a boisterous overflow." [Wall Street Journal]

It's actually hard to believe that after all that went on over the weekend THE EXACT SAME COACHELLA IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. But back to last weekend for a second...

You already saw pictures from Friday and Saturday, video of an idiot falling off a wooden structure, watched Frank Ocean's set, and Azealia Banks's. The Weeknd's too. You saw Refused's setlist and some videos. You already know what At The Drive-In played on Sunday, and streamed their set in full after you were done watching Real Estate's and M83's, not to mention parts of Bon Iver's and Andrew Bird's. You're already well aware that Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg and many special guests headlined on Sunday, and you even saw the pictures of them and watched the Tupac hologram video. Now here are the rest of the Sunday pictures, and they continue, below....

I think this is the most jump shots I've ever seen in a BV post. Good photos.

At the Drive in totally phoned in their performance. Omar looks bored as hell. No dancing, no freaking out, no wild wrong notes or bad tuning. None of the shit that made ATDI great! The rest of the band didn't look so hot either.

NO MORE REUNIONS. FUCK .

haaa thanks for the early morning smile

it's kind of awesome that full sets are on youtube

watching flo now, i love her; it's a shame bonnaroo had her play during the day last year and doesn't appear to be having her back this year; summerstage was great

tix for rcmh in may are like $300 on stubhub if you want 2 together... would be a great venue but pretty STEEP... i mean might as well just drive up to osheaga (just checked expedia and the most expensive hotel listed would cost less for 3 nights)

back to the real world!

God, Why does Wild Fag still tour?

They along with The Vaccines were the worst fucking openers I ever saw for both Sonic Youth and Arctic Monkeys.

Posted by Sam | April 19, 2012 12:44 AM

I'll be honest. Wasn't there.. but did watch the live stream. Justice must be a live thing.. glad the boys are making their $ but the show is nothing but eye candy. 2nd... At the Drive In SUCKED. BIG TIME. They've always been babies and this was nothing short of that. When customers are looking forward to a show FOOKIN DELIVER BITCH. Seriously, just deliver. What's the problem? Sad man..

For those who like Coachella, here is a link to an unofficial guide book that they're selling on Smashwords: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/151795. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to make it to the festival this year. Thanks, Phani.

I don't know some people make bad comments on this festival because for me is the greatest. Maybe when they come there they will convince about the how cool it is.
