COACHELLA BACK. And, this year, the bacchanalia stretches across two weekends featuring identical lineups, as well as an interim week of non-Coachella shows in L.A., so if you’re looking for live music in your city and there’s none to be had outside of that one bar band that always plays Happy Hour on Tuesdays at O’Halligan’s, this is why. This year’s Coachella contains another dizzying slate of intriguing prospects, and today we’ll run down 15 shows not to miss this weekend, featuring Radiohead, Pulp, Kendrick Lamar, God Speed! You Black Emperor, and more. Hit the gallery for the set time-sequential list.
Girls (5:40 Friday, Outdoor Theatre): As San Francisco Girls press onward, their audience growing as their sound becomes more refined and massive, Coachella is a big look for the bleak, sun-stained opuses of Father, Son, Holy Ghost. I’m guessing the sun doesn’t set ‘till a little bit after they’ll leave the stage, but a sunset/”Vomit” breakdown could easily be pegged as a hypothetical highlight of the festival at the time of this publication.
