Coachella 2012: Refused/At The Drive-In....Tupac!

Refused/At The Drive-In/2pac...back from the dead!

Back in January I lost my shit when Refused and At The Drive-In announced their were reuniting for this years Coachella festival. Two bands with two seminal albums I've listened to on end for the past 10+ years. Well, reality intervened and I decided not to bankrupt myself just to buy a ticket. It's cool though, I'm seeing Refused in San Francisco this week! Hopefully At The Drive-In stay together long enough to play more shows as well.

Here's footage from their reunions:





Ah, the power of the internet. Godbless Youtube.

Oh yeah...Tupac Shakur's holographic ghost made an appearance during Dr. Dre & Snoop Dog's headlining set last night, Obi-Wan style. I was watching the live stream on Youtube last night, exhausted from a long day at work and just about leap out of bed when Mr. Makaveli himself appeared onstage some 15 years after his death (murder =/ )





Wish I could have gone but glad I saved my cash. Especially since I'm taking that road trip to SF tomorrow! I'll be on a little vacation this week, see you folks when I return on Friday.

  2. I really wish I could have went to Coachella man, it looks like such an amazing, life time experience, I'm truly jealous. The Tupac as a hologram thing is a little weird for me though, I get that it's a nice touch and all but I'm not sure.

  5. A Tupac hologram? Holy mother of God yes. Just. Yes. More holograms. It's cool you're getting to see a show too. Hopefully At The Drive In will indeed stay together long enough. They should do. Breaking up just after reforming is hardly a class act.

  6. Gah... I'm glad you're taking that little vacation and all, but I'm also really glad you didn't go to Coachella, because if you'd seen Tupac's hologram I would've hated you. And I mean, you're a pretty alright guy, you don't deserve that kind of hate.

  7. Refused is playing in Chicago in July for much, much less than the cost for me to have flown to California and bought tickets for Coachella, so I'm going to do the shit out of that. I agree, I hope the At the Drive In reunion sticks enough for a tour, although the new Mars Volta album was pretty beast
