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 Yorkย Press talked to Keith who heard a rumorย 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 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ )

  1. i liked chis’ hair ๐Ÿ˜‰ (y)
    they looked good, and i assume they sounded it too, when don’t they?
    what was going on with the unicorn/horse/pony in keith’s bum pocket? ahaa ๐Ÿ˜›

    jealous! D:

  2. The photos guys look great…not sure about the all-white look though ๐Ÿ˜†

    And I’m pleased it was a brilliant show!

    I miss ’em. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  3. I noticed the missing textbook too. I hope they won’t ditch it in the future. or at least keith has to find another song to come into the audience.
    if there only was a gig to look forward too…*sobs*

  4. Indio is way too far away from Tacoma.

    *Cries a little*

    It looked like it was such an awesome show.

    But no Textbook? You’re right! That’s almost the best part. And I love Chris’s new hairstyle, the swoop is cute ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. yeah, you took great photos, Renee. all saved now. ๐Ÿ˜€
    god, I wish I could’ve seen them like that. also I watched the videos uploaded so far and they sounded awesome. god I miss them. I could really need some WAS action myself.

  6. oh, Renee. I’m just watching your video. it’s absolutely awesome. it’s my favourite coachella video. great view. :o) and you have a bit of Dinosaurs…oh and the bass line. I’m lost for words at the moment.
    just this
    Chris….so, so incredibly handsome…and cool….*sigh*

  7. Oh sure, give Michelle credit for some of my vids, I see how you are! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Inaction went up today, but Impatience/Let’s See It crapped out again. I’ll try again tonight!

      • No silly, username is what I meant! I recorded Cash Cow and Great Escape and they are uploaded to my account. Not that it matters at all, I just wanted to give you a hard time. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Impatience is still having technical difficulties uploading. How apropos, eh?

  8. That first one of Keith that you took – it’s my desktop right now.

    Oh how I wished they were coming to Sasquatch. But I got Kings of Leon, so I guess you can’t have everything.
