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.

The STone RoseS

I have to admit I did wonder a bit if enough people actually knew who Blur and The Stone Roses were when I saw them placed very prominently on top of this year's Coachella lineup. Then we just came across this Tumblr which reinforces the idea that maybe the Stone Roses, like Arcade Fire (at the Grammys) and Bonny Bear before them, are not exactly part of the mainstream consciousness.

P.S., as the above-pictured tweet reinforces, The Rolling Stones did not end up being a part of this year's Coachella lineup, despite that weird date that showed up momentarily on their app.

The band have already been into a rehearsal studio to start work on the set-list for the one of the most eagerly anticipated reunifications ever." - TheStoneRoses.org
