Martin's Blog Entry from Coachella, April 15, 2012: Feist Performs on the 'Outdoor' Stage at Coachella Festival

Hi Gang,

Pictured above from left to right:  me, Feist, Colette Carr and Andrea following Feist's performance at Coachella, April 14th, 2012

This year, Coachella has been expanded to two weekends for the first time.  I'm writing this blog entry on this, the first weekend and chilliest Coachella that I can remember.  Despite the low-ish temps, the Cherrytree crew (Andrea, Scott & Kelvin) and I are having a great time catching some great musical performances and vibing on the ambience.  

We saw some super sets yesterday by St. Vincent (courageous crowd surf and bad-a** fuzz guitar), Sebastian Ingrosso (wicked light show with Ryan Tedder cameo), Fernando Garibay (Electro-new wave dance frenzy featuring a Cherytree-themed segment of Robyn, Far East Movement and Cherry Cherry Boom Boom remixes) and The Buzzcocks (comprehensive set including Pete Shelley's solo hit "Homosapien").

One of the highlight performances for me last night was Feist's.  Backed with a full-sized and versatile ensemble that included winds, strings, piano and percussion, Feist unleashed her guitar and beautiful voice on the large crowd that gathered to see her in front the "Outdoor" stage.  Performing glorious, new arrangements of "I Feel It All" (from her classic album "The Reminder"), "How Come You Never Go There?" (from Feist's current album "Metals") and "Caught a Long Wind" (also from "Metals" and sampled by Far East Movement on their song "Little Bird" from their forthcoming album "Dirty Bass"), Feist led her top-notch musicians through a tasty set of her delightful repertoire.

Kicking it with us in the crowd were Colette Carr and Fernando Garibay, who had just come from his rousing DJ set at the Heineken tent.

Today promises to be another music-filled adventure at Coachella and ... Dre & Snoop are going to perform!  Will be keeping you all posted on and if cel phone reception permits!
