Stephen Malkmus @ Coachella

Mr. Malkmus's old band, Pavement, is one of the few remaining first-tier holdouts not to reconvene for Coachella. The quieter reunions this year were those of Swervedriver and Love and Rockets; the more significant one was Portishead, reunited after 10 years, which played a mesmerizing set on Saturday. (The main stage at Coachella in the evening is one of the glories of concertgoing in America: enormous sound, ample space, desert air.) [NY Times]
