You almost have a picture of me – my arm! Sad you didn’t get a shot of the melting face. I too loved the Fever Ray show. It was really powerful, especially since I didn’t see her show previously. I could only get tickets to the Glass House, and I didn’t want to drive out that far. My bad. LA Times said it was too chilly to work at Coachella; I thought it was amazing.
Although the press pit dude’s reaction was priceless. I was talking to him the next day, and he was like, “I couldn’t believe I was missing JAY-Z FOR THAT CRAZY LASER LIGHT SHOW SHIT IN A MASK.” I giggled about it.
I was happy that many people decided to follow through on their Coachella message board plans to wear masks and outfits. There were several good examples in the crowd that I didn’t have time to photograph. This was probably the most exciting set for me at Coachella this year. Hearing the intro to ‘If I Had a Heart’ boom from the speakers in complete darkness at the start of the set was amazing. Just as exciting as the first time hearing it on last year’s tour.
OK, I admit it: I just don’t get the whole Fever Ray style going on here, both on stage and in the crowd. It’s like Dia de los Muertos meets Eyes Wide Shut meets Cirque Du Soleil?
