These are the bands that I’m looking forward to checking out at the 2015 Coachella Music Festival. In the unlikely event anyone cares, here’s the list so far.
#27 = Tame Impala
Tame Impala is an overrated Australian psychedelic rock band that formed in 2007 out of a home-recording project led by frontman Kevin Parker. The band has released two well-received LP’s and made a good living playing Coachella on a regular basis.
Don’t get me wrong, I was all-over their debut release Innerspeaker. I was right there with the “Tame Impala blah blah blah” chatter. However, upon further review, I find their music quite boring and their live set unimpressive. That said, I’ll be right there drinking the Tame Impala Kool Aid in a few weeks.
Anyone like fun facts? The band is named after the medium-sized African Impala antelope, not to be confused with the Dik Dik, a small-sized African antelope.
Last week the group released the single “Let It Happen,” and the plan is to still release their third studio album in 2015.
Years played Coachella = 2 (2011 Outdoor Theatre & 2013 Outdoor Theatre)
Times I’ve seen them = 2 (PottyChella & 2013 Coachella)
