I had actually seen these guys for the first time about a week before Coachella, at the Loft at UCSD. But I was happy to be seeing them again, because a) they’re amazing, and b) I didn’t get to take photos at the Loft show. I really enjoyed their set a lot more this time around, because the sound was infinitely better than at the Loft. Also, I never get tired of seeing bands at Coachella breaking out into huge grins in the middle of a song, like, “Shit dude, we’re playing COACHELLA.” Always super endearing.
I unfortunately didn’t get to see their whole set, because Friendly Fires was playing the next tent over, and I knew from seeing them in Chicago that their set was also one not to be missed.
