Reviews of 20 Coachella sets from Weekend 2 of the 2013 Coachella Music Festival. I'd give this year a B in the Grand Ranking of Coachellas, which I will get to one of these days, having attended all 15 of them. Photos included (mostly my terrible iPhone camerawork, though grabbed a few off Flikr as well, and left some default images in for a few artists near the end).
- Wow. Playing guitar (well), crowd-surfing, and utterly deranged, Nick Cave's Grinderman project utterly killed - a hard act for even the Bad Seeds to follow in 2 days.

- Photo: Alyse / FlickrGreat set from this ideal festival band - better than the last time I saw them (Bonnaroo '09 or '10).
