Coachella 2012


Weekend 2

Gbenga Adelekan of Metronomy and moi.

Girl Talk set at the Outdoor Stage
You guys...somehow I got a whirlwind of good luck and was able to attend not one but both weekends of Coachella. If you follow me on twitter, I'm sure you've heard my rants. This year's line-up was pretty solid. saw sets from M83 (who didn't perform "Kim and Jessie"- WTH MAN!), The Weeknd, Gotye, Frank Ocean, Neon Indian, The Growlers, Santigold, tUnE-yArDs, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Justice, Girl Talk, Miike Snow, Thundercat, and The Rapture which was my favorite show because I danced so hard.

I hate I missed Madeon, SebastiAn, Yuck, Real Estate and Band of Skulls. I saw a bit of Mazzy Star and obviously the infamous Tupac hologram which sort of made me feel kind of weird. Maybe if the hologram performed "I Get Around", "Keep Your Head Up" or anything without the slightly morbid church bells that "Hail Mary" has on the track I could walk away from that not feeling like I've seen a ghost.

Weekend 1 will be known as Cold-chella because for the most part it was cold and rainy all weekend except for Sunday whereas weekend 2 averaged over 100 degrees each day. I had a lot of fun despite having a stupid toothache again (I'm always getting toothaches aren't I? Presumably from eating too many starches.) Now, no more partying until I stroll across the stage in exactly 1 month.

It's wicked to hear you had a rad time dude, being from Australia and only hearing about great events like this is still as breathtaking as being there!
I watched the Snoop vid with Tupac online, and even then that gave me goosebumps, it must've been surreal having witnessed it straight up.
You rocked those outfits as well!!!!
