Coachella part 2

Day 2, Sunday, April 30, 2006
We made it in time to catch the last song of the Magic Numbers so I can't really tell you if I liked them or not.
The Magic Numbers from the UK

Phoenix are from France. I heard a rumor that Thomas Mars impregnated Sofia Coppola.

Metric formed in Brooklyn. I saw this band years and years ago, they opened for somebody I can't remember. I liked them enough to buy one of their label-less cds. I'm glad they are doing well.

Matsiyahu-Brooklyn by way of PA. He was a lot of fun, as I expected.

Jamie Lidell from the UK. Although I just saw him last week, I liked him enough to stay for his whole set, which unfortunately was cut 15 minutes short for reasons unknown since he was playing when I arrived. But he did not disappoint!

Wolf Parade from Montreal. I really enjoyed them.

Sleater-Kinney from Washington State. I'm not a big Sleater-Kinney fan so only stayed for a song or 2.

This guy climbed up this metal sculpture. Not sure how high it was.

Gnarls Barkley are Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse. I really wanted to stay for more than one song but it was mad crowded and I wanted to see Stellastarr really, really badly. That Cee-Lo is a crazy dude!

New York based Stellastarr. I stayed for their whole set, it was easy to get up front, probably because everyone was over at Gnarls Barkley. I was really happy that they played my favorite, favorite song ever, Love and Longing. I took video of the song but I was standing right in front of the speaker so it came out distorted. Oh well. I definitely have to see their show next time they play.

YeahYeahYeahs are from New York! They were pretty cool, stayed for a few songs.

Seu Jorge. I couldn't get a really good shot of Seu Jorge. I only stayed for a song or 2.

Editors are from the UK. They had a really good set and stayed for more than a couple of songs. I wanted to get over to Madonna.

It was crazy over by the dance tent, people were climbing on top of the portopotties. It was after 8:30 before she came on when she was supposed to start at 8:10. This was as close to her as I got, a tiny glimpse of her on the big screen. I left after her first song, Hung Up.

The Go! Team are from England. They were FUN!! I was really feeling weak by this point with getting sick and being in the sun and using up my energy for Jamie Lidell and Stellastarr or else I would have been dancing up a storm like everyone else around me.

Art Brut from the UK I love Art Brut! They were great! Fun and campy and just a riot. And the last band.

It was a madhouse getting out into the parking lot. They closed one of the exits we used Saturday night so it was a big bottleneck to exit at the main entrance. We all got separated so I waited by the campgrounds for Tammy and Mark, who was waiting for Joy who didn't even get out into the parking area yet. Plus, they took away the parking lot balloons so we couldn't find the car right away. I was just feeling really miserable and weak by that point. We didn't stop at In and Out this time, stopped by a 7Eleven but didn't see anything I wanted so we went back to the condo and went to bed.
