Coachella 2009: Friday night notes and errata

April 17, 2009 |  9:27 pm

If you ever feel the tang of boiling rage in the myriad long lines inherent to the Coachella experience, don't take it personally: Even Anne Hathaway has to wait in line at the hand-washing station... Sing-along of the afternoon: the "bah bah bah bah" vocal sample of Crystal Castles' remix of Health's "Crimewave" single... I just watched a hugely enthused fan skip up to Alex Kapranos, start to say hi, then scamper away in shame back to her friends... I bet a lifetime supply of Spicy Pie pizza that there was at least one marriage proposal in the crowd during Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah." Wanton, widespread cuddling abided.... Current number of times I've been mistaken for Moby since I got here: two, and counting, sadly.... And yes, the rumors are true: Harem pants are in fact the new hotness here.
