8 Brief Unedited Thoughts on Coachella 2015

COACHELLA

  1. I’m sure AC/DC will be a lot of singalong fun and it’s about time Drake was a hip hop headliner at one of the majors. Jack White is always a reliable, if unimaginative, rock-n-roll-for-young-people choice.
  2. That undercard is great, though. Maybe it’s just because we’ve had a crop of new and exciting acts recently, but it feels like a festival I haven’t seen before. And that sensation hasn’t hit in a couple of years.
  3. Some of my enjoyment from seeing these lineups is knowing that some of these artists are getting the big Coachella payday & bump. Mazel tov to Perfume Genius, Ride, Bad Suns and friends.
  4. Usually I can pick out a day that stands out to me that is concentrated towards my taste, but it seems like a solid ship all ’round.
  5. I’ve come to the realization that the font sizes mean nothing and really they just want us to talk about them and debate them for comment thread fodder.
  6. That said, Axwell /\ Ingrosso just started playing live just 6 months ago and now they’re third billed! What a rise.
  7. Keep gettin’ them checks, Bad Religion.
  8. Seems a little light on hip hop?
