Let’s See It
Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt
It’s a Hit
This Scene is Dead
The Great Escape
It was a brilliant show from the guys that got the a lot of the crowd singing and dancing in the early afternoon. I had an awesome time watching them and I think everyone else around me had as much fun as I did.
Here’s what the press had to say so far:
The Hollywood Reporter: “the smart-and-hooky riffing rock of Brooklyn’s We Are Scientists carried the mid-afternoon.”
OC Weekly: “They’re fun dudes, natch, but it’s LOUD. Like, super, distort-y loud. In the words of Ralph Wiggum, “My freaking ears!”
New York Press talked to Keith who heard a rumor about a possible Smiths reunion for Coachella and Chris talked about playing at the main stage.
Yahoo! Music said they “peppered their set of short, sharp songs with witty/helpful banter about proper festival footwear and heatstroke risks.” (I don’t remember talk about heatstroke…)
The Scenestar has some incredible photos of their set.
Brooklyn Vegan has a couple of great photos too.
You can go to GettyImages.com right now and look at a couple of Coachella photos of the WAS set by searching under “We Are Scientists” under Editorial photos. OR you can go to the We Are Scientists discussion board right now where someone’s posted the photos there.
I’ve got my set on Flickr now and here’s a few of ’em…
There’s more to add to this post in the next few days so keep checking my site for updates. For anybody else that went to Coachella, link me to your photos and videos!
Videos after this cut…
Here’s a compilation of the clips I took- I didn’t take any full videos here, just little snippets of songs and etc. (the sound is crappy on this camera):
But there’s lots of good videos showing up on Youtube now…
(And I’ve fixed it now so it’s in setlist-order so you can watch it as if you were there 😀 )
