Live Gig Video: Haim’s entire set at the first weekend of Coachella 2014

Why suffer through the Californian desert heat (not to mention the damage to your wallet) when there are nice people on the internet that film entire sets from Coachella such as this one of Haim this past Friday afternoon? I don’t know if acoustics are to blame, but they don’t sound very good at all. Also, is it just me or do the Haim sisters look like they’re in pain and not actually enjoying performing at the festival? And it’s not just Este suffering as John witnessed at Reading 2013. Watch the whole shebang below.

Live Gig Video: Two Door Cinema Club perform an acoustic version of ‘Next Year’ at Coachella 2013

Our friends and TGTF favourites Two Door Cinema Club did the rounds last weekend at Coachella., At the Fuse VEVO house, the band stopped in for this acoustic performance of ‘Next Year’. I had a giggle seeing which song they played, as ‘Next Year’ is currently on regular rotation on the Weather Channel’s Local on the 8s where I live. (There obviously must be some Two Door fans in their programming group!)

 

Preview: Coachella 2013

The behemoth event known as Coachella consistently delivers a line-up that makes all us UK-based festivalers turn from smug Glastonbury relishing revellers into green-eyed monsters, praying for cheap trans-Atlantic flights. This year of course is no different, as the Coachella Music and Arts Festival has drawn in both the best home-grown talent, and the reticent prime cuts of British exports.

You only have to look at the headliners on the Fridays. Blur and The Stone Roses are two bands with a fanatical following from years ago and who still have already inspired a ticket buying frenzy that has seen the 3-day event sell out in record time. The re-formed Stone Roses promise to bring their archetypal brand of faux mope rock to American shores, while Blur will assault the assembled masses with waves of Britpop and shouting, plus probably some kind of Damon Albarn pomp. But that’s allowed, he’s like royalty, yeah? Now that’s just two of the bands and in all honesty, that’s enough to sell out the event for me. But if you have been lucky enough to grab one of the proverbial golden tickets to the sold-out event, then here’s a little more of what you have to enjoy at this orgy of talented fellows.

The Gaslight Anthem will be making an appearance midway down the bill, and will be bringing a bit of ‘Hometown Glory’ (see what I did there) to Coachella. Mercury Prize winners and golden trio of the recent British indie scene the xx will also be performing a set in support of their (now not so) new record ‘Coexist’. Alongside Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith will be Franz Ferdinand performing slightly lower down on the bill than you’d expect of a band with their formidable reputation. On the same day, Saturday, dance groove titan Moby will be performing, as well as Sigur Ros, Hot Chip and New Order. I did tell you it was an orgy of talent, eh?

To finish the weekend off then, what better way to do so then a dosing of nostalgia served with a hearty portion of topless men, with long or shaven, hair jumping about on stage. I of course refer to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who will be closing the event.

Coachella 2013 is already sold out, but we’ll be keeping an eye on things in Indio 12-14 April and 19-21 April.
