Coachella 2013 Round-UpEdit

There was a great showing from excited fans and pumped up acts, but here are the few highlights from Coachella 2013 that really seemed to stand out:

  • Solange had a Main Stage cameo with Mercury Music Prize-winning downtempo British band the xx.
  • New Order delivered an ode to Ian Curtis by playing a trifecta of moody classics by Joy Division--the band from which they sprung, following Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis's 1980 suicide.
  • John Legend had an unbilled onstage appearance with Italian DJ/producer Benny Benassi on Saturday night where they premiered their new joint single "Dance The Pain Away."
  • Postal Service returned! Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard and electronic artist Jimmy "DNTEL" Tamborello returned to the stage together for a performance aided by Jenny Lewis.
  • Karen O from Yeah Yeah Yeahs took the stage in a metallic purple pantsuit and hologramic cape and crown, brandishing her gold mic stand like a scepter before changing into a black leather biker-babe jacket with her initials "K.O." written on the back in metal rivets.
  • Blur's Damon Albarn hugged an onstage sign-language interpreter in the middle of "Tender"...aaaw!
  • Ariel Pink joined Dam-Funk on the Main Stage for a surprise cover of Donnie & Joe Emerson's 1979 soul-pop rarity, "Baby" and it was not bad!
  • Palma Violets rocked hard and their set didn't end at just that! After a fast-paced set, there was an onstage punk-rock pogo party!
  • R. Kelly made an appearance and sang "Ignition (Remix)" with Phoenix!
  • Daft Punk didn't even play, but a trailer featuring new music from the electronic duo and a list of collaborators for their upcoming album, including Pharrell and Julian Casablancas, debuted to excited concertgoers!
