This year Nic, Nate, Jon and I went to Coachella. It was my first time, and it more than exceeded my expectations. There’s nothing better than seeing your favorite bands performing back to back in sunny and warm Palm Springs. We saw Afrojack, Cut Copy, Robyn, Yelle, The Kills, Empire of the Sun, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire, Foster the People, The Strokes, Kanye, Axwell, and so many more. Arcade Fire had one of the best, if not the best, performances. Saturday night on the main stage, closing down the night with a crazy shower of illuminated orbs that spread over the entire audience and lit up the sky. Foster the People killed it in the Gobi Tent on the final night as the sun was setting. The Strokes were amazing; they made the crowd go wild with Reptilia, You’re Right, Gratisfaction, and Undercover Darkness. We can’t wait for them to perform at Sweetlife Festival next weekend!
