LIVE REVIEW: Coachella 2015 Weekend 2 – Sunday
It’s said that Sunday’s headliner, Drake, had the worst performance in Coachella history. But despite his flop the rest of the day was packed with incredible performances.
Closing out the night at the outdoor stage was Los Angeles’s own Fitz & the Tantrums. Front man, Michael Fitzpatrick, told their audience they wanted everyone to get off their cellular devices and enjoy the experience and join their dance party. The crowd obliged and was captivated by their songs but especially the hits, “You were out of my league”, “Money Grabber”.
Last weekend Florence Welsh of Florence & the Machine had an energetic set that resulted in her breaking her foot! That broken foot didn’t keep her from coming back to the desert for weekend 2. She was seated the whole time, but still gave a beautiful performance which included a full orchestra and a guest appearance from Father John Misty, Josh Tillman.
St. Vincent returned to Coachella for another amazing performance! The talented Annie Clark hypnotized the crowd with her guitar skills and beautiful voice.
Jenny Lewis definitely had the most colorful set at Coachella. Rainbows everywhere, even on her homemade romper. Lewis is known for her many solo projects and her time with Rilo Kiley.
Luckily for anyone watching her this year, they were surprised with a mini Rilo Kiley reunion since former member Blake Sennett played a set earlier with his new band, Night Terrors of 1927.The two played various Rilo songs, but started it off with “Portions for Foxes” which brought out all the feelings in the crowd.
Conor Oberst is back in full swing with his band Desaparecidos. The Omaha natives rocked the gobi tent and showcased lots of new songs that will be out on their new album in June.
Brand New and Circa Survive were a throwback to everyone’s emo days in high school.
The day started off with lots of LA natives having time slots at this year’s Coachella. Bands included Joyce Manor, Touche Amore, Saint Motel, and Night Terrors of 1927.
