Refused @ Coachella 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Refused

One day before Coachella on Friday, the reunited Refused played a warm up show at the Glass House in Pomona, CA. At that more-intimate show, their first US show in fourteen years (but not their first reunion show), they played fourteen songs which is only one more than they played the next night to a giant crowd at the desert festival. OC Weekly was at the smaller gig:

"Introduced by foreboding background music that sent anticipation skyrocketing and lights perfectly set for an intimate rock 'n' roll show, Refused hit the stage to anxious claps and a powerfully active crowd. Beginning with "The Shape of Punk to Come" and the drum beat backed proclamation "Hey baby you never felt this good," the long awaited veterans set their sights and sharpened teeth on Pomona. Following this was another one of the band's beloved favorites, "The Refused Party Program," which transitioned itself perfectly to a twenty twelve live setting. In those first initial torrents of songs being performed, Lyxzen's energy expenditures were left without a penny unspent and the band's vise-tightened stranglehold on the fans and speakers was indestructible. "

Refused will now hang out in California and play San Francisco and then Coachella again next weekend before heading to NYC for two sold out shows at Terminal 5. They then return to North America for more touring over the summer with Off!. Tickets for the Brooklyn show at Williamsburg Park are still on sale.
