Dead Can Dance, Dinosaur Jr. and Red Hot Chili Peppers at Coachella

Dead Can Dance

Dead Can Dance released their latest album, Anastasis last year. What an amazing album! I had the chance to see them at the Gibson Amphitheater last year and it remains one of the most amazing shows of my life. I just found out yesterday that they are closing down that amphitheater after 40 years to build a new ride for Universal. It's sad. I will have fond memories of that night Dead Can Dance were there. Their sets are always amazing. This one relies pretty heavily on songs from their latest album, but they still play some old songs. Check it out:
1. Children of the Sun
2. Agape
3. Amnesia
4. Nierika
5. Kiko
6. Black Sun
7. Sanvean
8. The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove

Dinosaur Jr.

Dinosaur Jr might as well be called Dinosaur St at this point. It was very strange to see J Mascis with a full head of grey hair, but it was still suiting for them considering their age. It showed how far they had come. They were one of the main highlights at Coachella. They even played a song from their first cassette, back in the early 80s. It was a tight set and it was nice to see an 80s band still have it. They also played some stuff from the 90s when Lou Barlow wasn't in the band (Out There, Feel the Pain). A great set!
1. The Lung
2. Watch the Corners
3. Rude
4. Out There
5. Feel The Pain
6. The Wagon
7. Training Ground” (Deep Wound)
8. Start Choppin 9. Freak Scene
10. Sludgefeast

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Another great show I saw last year was the Red Hot Chili Peppers at Staples Center. The Hall of Fame group closed Sunday's set with a very long setlist. They played songs from almost all their albums and were tight as ever. Check out the video
