It’s a tough job trying to pinpoint the top five performances of Coachella 2011, but somebody’s got to do it.
So after braving sun stroke, risking hearing loss and enduring a weekend of porta-potties, I can confidently list the top five performances of Coachella 2011.
I sacrificed seeing the Strokes and Chromeo to catch them (Coachella scheduling conflicts are the worst). But Phantogram’s performance was well worth it. If only because it solidified my girl crush on singer/keyboardist Sarah Barthel.
4. Arcade Fire
They’re Arcade Fire. And unless you’ve been quoted on Who Is Arcade Fire? you understand why they’re incredible.
Judging by the way she was dancing around in her little red-and-white one-piece, even Katy Perry enjoyed his show.
2. Empire of the Sun
They brought the weird. And that made them wonderful.
1. !!! (Chk Chk Chk)
I’ve seen them at big outdoor festivals and in tiny clubs and they always put on the most amazingly fun shows. Take a look at this clip and you’ll be buying tickets to their next concert pronto.

P.S. Add The Anthology on Facebook and it’ll become one of your top five favourite pages.
OMG I love Phantogram, didn’t know they were at Coachella!!! My jealous has increased. But I am so glad you had fun, I’ll have to check out your top 2, I’m not fimliar with them :)
I love Phantogram too! I saw them for the first time when they opened up for Metric last spring. I have a girl crush on her too! Glad you had a blast, and looked fab while doing it too! xx
cool I’ll have to check out some of these – not heard of Phantogram before. And Strokes are a bit over rated anyways =P
Love the colour on your outfit shot.
[…] One of my very favourite bands from Coachella is coming to Vancouver. Phantogram plays Venue on May 20th. […]
Great list. I was frantically trying to get my party out the door to catch !!! with me, telling them it would be the show of the festival. And it was.
(FYI: found your site googling “chk chk chk Vancouver”.)
