  • Review: The Strokes at Coachella

    18 Apr 2011, 08:21 by ianenos03

    One night after Arcade Fire absolutely killed it at Coachella, a very different feeling emanated from Indio, California, tonight. I was not there, so it is entirely possible that the mood was completely different in person than how the show came across on the YouTube simulcast, but if indeed things were as uncomfortable as they seemed at times, one may even have to question the viability of The Strokes going forward.

    The show began with a thud, with the members of the band all slightly out of sync, their levels out of whack (a problem that never seemed to be fully fixed), and Casablancas's mic apparently not on. But still, by the end of the surprise opener, I Can't Win, they had seemed to pull themselves together, finishing the track strong. All seemed well as they launched straight into a crowd favorite, their vintage hit Hard to Explain, but they then stumbled through Angles' best track, Under Cover of Darkness, with multiple band members making several noticeable mistakes throughout…

    Fri 1 Apr – The Strokes, Elvis Costello, Devendra Banhart and The Grogs

    While I am not the biggest The Strokes fan ever I have liked the band a lot since Is This It came out back when I was still in high school. Because of that it was a thrill to see them live because they are one of the bands I listened to when I was a teenager (and also because their music is great :P).

    I got really lucky with my ticket to be sincere. When I went to Ticketmaster I didn’t like the seats I was getting at first (300 and 200 level tickets) but after some retries I got section 7 (fuck yeah!) and saying no to that ticket/seat would be stupid so I bought it right away! It was the first time I got a floor level seat at the MSG.

    Now lets get into the concert itself… The first opening act was Devendra Banhart and to be sincere I didn’t like his music at all, but I have to admit the last song he played was pretty nice and also he seemed to be a cool fun guy. …
