Here's my quickie +Coachella review from someone who showed up late and left early - but still had an amazing time!
Friday: a little rainy. we arrived at 9:00 pm after driving in from OC.
Afrojack: awesome. high energy.
The Black Keys: legit rock stars. killed it!
M83: very cool. great sound. excited to be at Coachella.
Datsik: crazy cool. giant robots w/fire extinguisher hands...really.
Swedish House Mafia: (or Swedish Fish Mafia - I've heard it both ways). Big show big sound.

Sat: on 1st bus at noon. Spicy Pie and Flatbreads w/no lines! Cool & windy.
Dragonette: loved them/her! beautiful sound.
Mt. Eden: Michael front row - singer crowd surfed over him!
Borgore: least favorite act. bad sound & stripper poles...
Childish Gambino: loved Donald Glover, the band, not so much
Grace Potter & Nocturals: great sound - reminded me of +Ruth Gerson :-)
AWOLNATION: they grew on me. I liked them more than I thought I would.
Zeds Dead: another great show in the Sahara tent.
Manchester Orchestra: good. not great.
We left the venue around 6:30 - Michael was under the weather and I ran 11.5 miles in the a.m. We intended to nap and rally. Nap yes...rally, not so much.

Sunday: 10+ hrs sleep! perfect weather! 1st bus again! Arrived to NO CROWDS!
Fanfarlo: great sound. Very ACL.
Filet Steak Sandwich from Ruth's Chris...perfect lunch!
NOISA: Michael gets front row center and doesn't move for 3 hrs. Great 1st show.
I wonder around and see the following:
Oberhofer: good.
Housse de Racket: good
Lissie: nice mellow singer songwriter sound. perfect day for it!
Zedd: back at Sahara. Best show overall in Sarhara in my opinion
Flux Pavillion & Doctor P: good, not great.
I go to the Rose Garden where I see Skrillex and Zedd. Txt Michael to meet me.
Michael arrives at 4:05 - gets pics with +Skrillex [ Sonny Moore ] and +Ellie Goulding (wearing his Feed Me hat). They could NOT have been cooler or nicer! Michael talks with Zedd and we listen to Porter Robinson before we leave the Rose Garden.

We headed out around 5:00 and got home by 7:15. A great Coachella experience. Great vibe, very positive energy. Happy young kids (many of whom were tripping/high/drunk) and no complaints.
