Coachella 2013 - Day 1

Coachella 2013 is underway and streaming live. if I had to choose a theme musically for day one (Friday), it would have to be new, solo and side projects. The NY Times agrees...

Friday's lineup was teeming with such line-jumpers, performing with various degrees of laurel-resting. Early in the day came the Shouting Matches, a shambolic blues-esque outfit whose sales pitch is that it includes Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. The group took almost a half-hour for sound check, and its set was almost as loose. Mr. Vernon, such a precise and processed singer in Bon Iver, was here far more at ease, pushing his vocals no harder than the amiable songs demanded.

Later, in the dance-centric Sahara tent, Dog Blood performed a loud but not thunderous set. It's a collaborative project of Skrillex and Boys Noize, and does not quite live up to Skrillex's typical punishment or Boys Noize's characteristic exuberance.

There was also Divine Fits (Britt Daniel of Spoon + Dan from Wolf Parade), Deathfix (Brendan Canty of Fugazi on drums), Grinderman with Nick Cave, Johnny Marr of the Smiths, Trent Reznor of NIN in How to Destroy Angels (who made their live debut days earlier), Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys with his band The Guantanamo School of Medicine, and more. And of course reunions and britrock galore with Blur, The Stone Roses, Sparks, and Jurassic 5 all also playing Friday. Here are our pictures from day one (which do not include Polica, but check out our instagram for a shot of Justin Vernon joining them on stage).

UPDATE: Day Two pictures are HERE and Day Three pictures are HERE.

Coachella 2013 - Day 1

"The giant snail. Yes, really. One of the most bizarre sightings Friday was this innovative art installation. Dubbed Helix Poeticus, the massive, machine-operated snail slowly crept along the field during Modest Mouse's performance, and its silver body shimmered under the night sky as its shell glowed." [LA Times]

No crowd shots!?

Crotch shots?

crowd was so small for the stone roses and blur..kids these days

Posted by az | April 13, 2013 4:13 PM

Blur was always overrated.

Posted by Anonymous | April 13, 2013 4:36 PM

In LA, offered free weekend passes and turned them the fuck down. Why, cause the lineup is fucking horrible. From the looks of these photos I absolutely made the right choice.

I usually tire of you dumb motherfuckers and your hummus comments but I just ate a whole fucking 10oz container of the Sabra tahini hummus and it was really fucking good. Wanted to tell you.

Watched Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the youtube stream. What happened? They are def past their prime. Grinderman, Johnny Marr & Blur were all great. Alt-J, Metric, Beach House & Local Natives all sucked.

Stone Roses was the best show of the weekend so far. All you haters go fuck yourselves and choke on a bag of hummus dicks.

^ They're okay, but let's not kid ourselves. They had two albums, only one that was actually good, and Ian cant sing for shit live.

Where are the pics of the festival sluts???

Posted by Anonymous | April 14, 2013 2:04 PM


Metric's attempt to get the crowd to say I Love Lou Reed was probably the funniest moment of the festival. Never heard so many crickets, coughs and head scratches amongst 400,000 people before

3:44 is right. Coachella reports on BV usually have great shots of the scene and people. These photos mostly look like they were taken at sound check.

Makes me so sad that the kids didn't give a fuck about Blur and Stone Roses....

"Can't miss Earl Sweatshirt bro"

@10:47 it actually is possible to like all of those three. Kids still like that stuff but it's not the demographic who goes to Coachella in 2013.

Posted by Anonymous | April 15, 2013 10:54 AM

@10:54 - Agreed. I like all of them. Just pains me that their crowds were so small.

And I'm bitter because no NYC dates have been announced...

The commenter who dissed Earl probably just picked out a name from the line-up that sounded dumb to him. Much to his surprise, Earl is full of talent

Posted by Anonymous | April 29, 2013 7:04 PM

(continued from above)But, I think I know what you were getting at. I'm 22. I love Earl. I really like Stone Roses. Some of the musical preferences of people close to my age is highly questionable. BUT DON'T YOU TALK STUFF ON EARL, HE'S A POET.

I really like this. Just messed up industrial jazz. I've wanted TR to get back to using some real instruments for a while, and this is awesome. Somewhat similar to Tetsuo track...
