Over the next 11 weeks I’ll dig deep into the 2014 Coachella MusicFestival lineup, featuring one band per day. The purpose of this piece is to assist in difficult decisions that inevitably you’ll need to make, as well as, serve as a fun countdown to Coachella Week. Note: All bands appear in a completely random order… Enjoy, and let the countdown continue!
Day 46 = The Bots
Performing = Friday
The Bots are an indie rock band comprised of the teenage brothers Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei. The duo formed the band in 2009 in Glendale, California when Mikaiah was 15 and Anaiah was 12. The two released their self-titled debut full-length in 2009, and then followed it up with the EP Black and White Lights in 2010, and the Ladies & Gentlemen EP in 2011. The band’s most recent work is an EP titled Sincerley Sorry, released last September.
The kids have had quite a start to their young career, supporting the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Bad Brains here in the states, and opening for Blur on a European tour. Blur frontman Damon Albarn calls The Bots his favorite current band.
This is a band for fans of the White Stripes and The Black Keys, I think we have a few of those out there.
