Red Hot Chili Peppers [Photo by Debi Del Grande]We did it kids, Coachella 2013 is a wrap! There's a certain well-deserved satisfaction that comes with deleting the Coachella app from your phone. The last night of the desert music bender didn't lose a bit of momentum despite the surely burned and beaten crowds. As myself, your faceless Weekend 2 narrator, my rubber legs were given a break once I finally figured out the golf cart situation backstage.
Weekend 2's Sunday highlights were once again Tanlines' Brooklyn beats, Tame Impala's swaying rock, La Roux's heat-seeking dance tunes, and more from the deliciously sinister Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (accompanied by a children's chorus whom likely has no idea who he is). Everyone I saw was in top shape, surely correcting errors and adding flairs after last weekend's performances. But oh, the hologram jokes ran rampant during onstage banter. Note to Coachella 2014: It's over.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers deserve a shout-out since the usually music-discerning Coachella crowd came out in hoards to the main stage, singing along to every song. They are likely the most commercial act to ever headline the festival, and as much as I want to stick my nose up at the band as a music writer, I couldn't help but realize that I, too, knew all the words. Plus, Anthony Kiedis was wearing a hat with punk super group Off!, so that was pretty cool.
