Closing out the Coachella Festival were Gorillaz. If you don’t know exactly what Gorillaz is, it is a music project headlined by Damon Albarn of Blur (and assisted by artist Jamie Hewlett) who uses a revolving door of musicians. The new album features Snoop Dogg, Mos Def, Bobby Womack, Little Dragon, and more. Bobby and Little Dragon were on site to accompany the band live, as were members of the Pharcyde and De La Soul. It was a pretty dope performance, but I dont think the crowd was too familiar with the non singles of the band. The same way I felt about the Muse crowd. Jay-Z, Friday night’s headliner had everyone singing. But no crowd has ever been as big, or had more devoted fans than the crowd Weezer pulled in ’05.
*Daft Punk in ’06 was the best performance I’ve ever seen, but if I had to guess, I’d say their crowd was 75-80% the size of Weezer’s
