Coachella 2011 Day 3 Live Updates Part 1

9:00 am - Uggh, These earlier start times for opening acts are killers!

1:00 pm - Loving these early sets. Good Old War excellent Simon & Garfunkel vibe and had totally endearing moment when one band member brought his Dad out to sing vocals for final song.

Eliza Doolittle trying to muscle the Amy Winehouse slot minus the substance issues. Felt American Idolizh but girl is drop dead gorgeous in Mila Kunis way. She'll probably end up being huge.

Phosphorescent looked like they rolled out of bed five minutes before set but were fantastic. The sound of Byrds Sweetheart Of The Rodeo given a contemporary lyrical spin!

3:30 - Delorean, Jack's Mannequin, hardcore punk outfit OFF higlights of last couple hours.

Menomena gave it a solid go, and destroyed on TAOS and Dirty Cartoons, but overall their very tricky recording style create difficulties in translation.

Only caught three songs of Twin Shadow but he's a very compelling presence live. Even though their sound was all over place, his song played stronger live.

Also caught some on MEN and Fun. Didn't care in slightest for either.
