My Coachella 2009

As good as any year- maybe the best ever. was like a Bonnaroo as far as me cramming tons of different sets into 3 days. Definitely the most music I've seen at a Coachella to date, and I've been to all. Perhaps the best thing of all was that for my tastes there were very few schedule conflicts. It's going to be tough for any other festivals to beat Coachella 09. glad to see Goldenvoice continue to open up the lineup to older artists with cred. All my top 8-10 sets were about equal as far as my loving them went - tough to pick winners but a man's gotta Rank.

    Macca was awesome as he has been every one of the 4 times i've seen him this millenium (i'm sure if this had been the first or 2nd i would have been absolutely ecstatic). a few odd song choices (flaming pie? WTF?) but given that he played for 2.5 hours (we bailed after first encore) he is certainly allowed to throw some duff tracks in the mix.

    pound for pound probably the best set. this band is always a little different live when i see them - and this set was prob the best i've seen.

    this lineup of the Cure is playing better live than any lineup since at least 1990 or so. missed the first 5 songs due to Orb - Jen had said the start of the cure set was lame, but from the time we got there on they were excellent, as good as last year at the shrine. missed the last 45mins or so - fatigue had set in, but we caught at least an hour and a half

    great set - opened with a slow new song but after that it was a power packed hour or so. better than the wiltern last year.

    he was great but having just seen the full 2.5 hr set at the Nokia this set was slightly anticlimactic (and could have used a bit more volume). still it might have been my #1 of the fest if i hadn't just seen him a week earlier
