Saturday at Coachella is already in full swing, but what the hell... Let's keep this exercise in hypotheticals rolling, shall we?
12:25-1:15- Rx Bandits
Matt Embree is an inspired songwriter, a surprisingly soulful singer, and a kickass guitarist. Their album "The Resignation" owned my life the summer of 2004. I've already seen them live twice before, but I wouldn't be able to pass them up.
Okay. I admit it. The only reason I want to catch this band live is to see if they live up to the hype. So sue me...
4:25-5:15- Beach House
I'm absolutely obsessed with "Teen Dream" right now, sooooo... Also, I'm always curious to see how 2 pieces pull off their live sets. Do they add musicians? Is everything simplified? Are the arrangements more sparse, which means that there's less to hide behind? I promise you. This would have been one of the highlights of my hypothetical Coachella...
5:10-6:00- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
I really, really, really dug Ima Robot while they were a band. And there's something about creating alternate stage personas that really appeals to me. And that lead singer guy's beard is pretty impressive. Beard points alone make them a must see.
6:25-7:10- the xx
A co-worker of mine played some of their tunes for me a whlie back, and I was very intrigued. Again, this is an example of a band that's been on my radar, I haven't really super gotten into them, but would love to, so why not go catch them live?
6:40-7:30- Coheed and Cambria
I just want to listen to that voice and watch that hair bounce. Oh, and their guitar work is wicked sweet as well.
7:55-8:45- Faith No More
Really... It's fuckin' Faith No More. Of course, you're seeing this!!!
10:35-11:25- Les Claypool
Slappin' da bay-yuuhsssss. A revolutionary musician.
11:05-12:00- The Dead Weather
I have a secre man crush on Jack White. And I have a secret woman crush on Alison Mosshart. "Treat Me Like Your Mother" is one of the swaggerest songs of all times...
Because shaking your ass just never gets old...
