However, Sunday's lineup thankfully featured some guitar-brandishing acts, besides Motörhead, who proved that rock is not dead at Coachella -- or in general. For instance, British punk veterans the Toy Dolls pulled a respectable crowd to the Mojave Tent (opposite the very different Calvin Harris's set) and kept a proper counter-clockwise, Doc-Martens-kicking-up-dust slam pit going at full churn throughout their high-energy performance. "Do you think I'm getting too old for this?" spiky-haired frontman Michael "Olga" Algar asked the crowd. It was likely a rhetorical question, but fans ceased their slam-dancing just long enough to shout back, "Noooooo!" - [Yahoo! Music]
The first weekend of Coachella 2014 wrapped up Sunday night (4/13) with dance music and Arcade Fire, but there was lots of other stuff going on too. Motörhead, with Lemmy back in action after some health issues, was there to show them how it's done and brought out Slash for a few songs; punk pranksters Toy Dolls and indie rock vets Superchunk both played a high energy set that would tire bands 20 years their junior; and Chicago's Chance the Rapper brought out, um, Justin Beiber.

There were also Swedish pop charmers Little Dragon, Australia's very talented Courtney Barnett, photoshy North Carolinians Neutral Milk Hotel, industrial-techno outfit Factory Floor, and lots lots more. Pictures from Coachella weekend 1, day 3 are in this post.

Jeff asks the crowd not to take photos.

Jeff said no photos and this cock toker took photos.

Music unfortunately needs a Tsunami to wipe out 90% of the bands out there. Lets start fresh & peel away some of this garbage. Thank you in advance Mother Nature.

I gotta say, Jeff's no photo request makes the NMH show even better. It was the first time in years that I watched an entire set without dozens of iPhones blocking my view.

That Little Dragon business looks like some serious pansy boy rock

"That Little Dragon business looks like some serious pansy boy rock"

Correction, it was Toy Dolls. Damn those guys look like tools.

Also looks like the 5 string bass is making a serious come back. The the corn rolls sway

Way to show your age and lack of knowledge, there kiddo.

Toy Dolls have been around for 30+ years, and their songs go hand-in-hand with their look.

Now, lets shave our beard, take off the denim cutoffs, chain up your bike and realize that you don't know shit.

Neutral Milk Hotel, the whitest, blowiest band out there. A band whose myth started as a joke and everybody bought it. The guy yells off-key and close to the mike and everybody thinks that's awesome. Jeez!
