CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA! When one of the most influential rock & roll bands of the 80’s decides to play at Coachella, you go. Period. Though their set may not have been filled with the booze and testosterone that I’ve read about, heard or watched (click HERE or HERE for examples of what I’m talking about), their set demonstrated their legacy in … Read More The Replacements | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!

Broken Bells | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA! Brian Burton p/k/a Danger Mouse caught my attention back in 2004 when he released “The Grey Album” which combined Jay-Z’s vocal performances from “The Black Album” with instrumentals from the Beatles’ “White Album”.  That project blew my mind, and I’ve been following his musical output since (Gnarles Barkley with Cee Lo Green, his … Read More Broken Bells | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

HAIM | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!   My guilty pleasure? Wholesome pop-rock that sounds like it could have come from the mid to late 80s. That’s why I decided to check out HAIM’s set at Coachella. Having heard a lot about their music, I’ve been wanting to purchase their debut LP “Days Are Gone” for a while … Read More HAIM | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

A$AP Ferg | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!   After being ushered out of the photo pit for Grouplove, I decided to head over to the Outdoor Theatre in order to grab a bite to eat before setting up to take pictures of HAIM. A$AP Ferg was on stage bringing it with the A$AP Mob when all of a sudden I notice … Read More A$AP Ferg | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

Grouplove | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!   I knew that Grouplove’s music was fun, but I had no idea I’d be having so much fun taking pictures of them while they were performing. The energy that they emit from the stage while performing induced everybody, myself included, to jump and dance around, even in the sweltering desert heat. The expressiveness … Read More Grouplove | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

Jagwar Ma | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA! Jagwar Ma is three piece, Australian psychedelic/dance band that formed in Sydney. Their first full length album, Howlin’, in my opinion, reminded me a bit of the Stone Roses, and being a Stone Roses fan, I wanted to check out their live set. After my time in the photo pit had … Read More Jagwar Ma | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

Dum Dum Girls | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!      I’m a fan of Dee Dee Penny (nee Kristin Welchez) and her sound. Based on some of her more recent work (like “Too True To Be Good” and “Coming Down”), her voice and style reminds me of some of the female rock-pop fronted bands I grew up with (off the top … Read More Dum Dum Girls | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

GOAT | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA! I hadn’t planned on checking out their set, but a good friend of mine suggested that it’d be worth my time. I’m glad I took the suggestion, because GOAT was a perfect mid-afternoon band for me. This band from Sweden, with their fusion of experimental rock, afrobeat and acid rock, really, I found my feet … Read More GOAT | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA! At 12:30 I walked over check out the first band on the Main Stage; an Alternative rock band from Australia named The Preatures. The lead singer, Isabella Manfredi, exhibited “rock-and-roll charisma,” performing with a confidence that was hard not to be captivated by. To be performing on the largest stage at Coachella, … Read More The Preatures | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)

CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT BLOG ENTRIES OF OTHER BANDS I SAW AT COACHELLA!   The first act I caught at Coachella at noon on Friday was British, Singer Songwriter, Tom Odell. A solid singer songwriter who I believe can have a long and fruitful career so long as he can keep writing songs that his fans can relate to. I couldn’t find a setlist … Read More Tom Odell | Coachella | 4/11/14 (PHOTOS)
