Cloud Nothings played Coachella (pics, setlist), playing NYU’s Strawberry Festival (updated dates, lineup)

Cloud Nothings provided the only shade of relief in an afternoon overloaded with sun-shining lackadaisical grooves and showboating MCs. Exemplifying everything you ever loved about noise rock and art punk, Dylan Baldi and company perfectly played the part of the geeks in the corner whilst tanned tummies and beefy bros went about their silly business elsewhere.

Cloud Nothings played the first of two Coachellas this past weekend. They played the Friday, giving day 1 a dose of harder, punkier music (most stuff in that realm happened the next two days). We got highlights from their last two records like "Stay Useless," "Pattern Walks," "I'm Not Part of Me," "No Future/No Past," "Wasted Days" and more. Pictures of Cloud Nothings and their setlist are in this post. They do it again this Friday (4/17) for Coachella weekend two.
Cloud Nothings also have other upcoming shows, including a free Brooklyn show at MHOW on 4/22 with Amanda X ("sold" out) and NJ's Skate & Surf fest in May. They have also been announced for the 30th annual NYU Strawberry Festival. This year's happens Friday, May 8 at LaGuardia Place (between W 3rd St. and Washington Square South) from 12:30 - 4:30 PM. LVL UP, Celestial Shore and Field Trip round out the bill, and it's free as always.
