Fauxchella: Here's Where to See Coachella 2014 Bands in the Bay Area

Categories: Coachella

You can see Coachella bands without leaving the Bay Area. Yes!
You want to see a bunch of artists that are playing Coachella 2014, but not necessarily while baking under the sun near people from L.A. We are here to help, with this guide to the cornucopia of upcoming Bay Area live dates. Let us remind you that it's Jan. 10 as we write this, and much of the concert industry machinery hasn't even begun whirling at full tilt yet, so many shows/tours/albums have yet to be announced. We'll add to this as they are. Point is: if you're looking to do Coachella at home -- and without the endless lines of cars, the camping, and the crispy skin -- peruse the below.

Top 10 Best Fashion Moments on the S.S. Coachella

SS Coachella (Day 1) by Ian Witlen-34 tie dye.jpg

Yes, this happened.
By LIZ TRACY

Most of the people we met on the S.S. Coachella had never been on a cruise before. Like us, they weren't so sure what to pack or how to dress for three days of awkwardly saying hi to their favorite bands at a floating city on the sea. But, like the festival, the fans also brought their desert style to cruisin' with mixed results.

We could sit here and talk about all the "types" of people who sailed out to Nassau, but really, we'd rather just show you. These are the most memorable fashion moments we caught on the maiden voyage of the S.S. Coachella. Get your eyebrows ready to raise.

S.S. Coachella: We Go Wine-Tasting with James Murphy on a Cruise Ship

SS Coachella (Day 3) by Ian Witlen-9.jpg

[Editor's note: As you've probably heard, massive So-Cal music festival Coachella is going on its first cruise this winter, featuring Pulp, James Murphy, and Sleigh Bells, among other acts. Liz Tracy, music editor of our sister paper in Broward County, Fl., is aboard the S.S. Coachella , so we'll be publishing her dispatches from the floating music festival all this week.]

Old punk guys and fancy wines: Two things that make sense together only now, mere days before the end of the world.

Nothing is more a "sign of the times" than James Murphy and Justin Chearno hosting a winetasting in the middle of the ocean for a handful of people both able and willing to ride the S.S. Coachella. It has all the elements of things we want as a culture: exclusivity, intimacy, rock stars, and, of course, alcohol. The two-evening Real Wine talk really captured the oddity of the experience, in a more wholesome way than two people discreetly doing it in the Sky Lounge to a live soundtrack of Cloud Nothings.

No one's really interested in reading about the actual performances taking place on this musical ship of contradictions, the S.S. Coachella, amirite? Instead, you want a spoonful of gossipy anecdotal sugar, straight from the decks of this odd ship.

As you might have seen, Pulp was the largest name at the top of the S.S. Coachella flyer. The band played almost two hours on Sunday night, making cruisers swoon with Anglophilic adoration. But Jarvis Cocker -- the man whose name was being whispered all around the ship -- didn't sit in his room or hide out like James Murphy (the chupacabra of the boat, whom I have only spotted offstage).

Fashion and music are the funniest-looking twin sisters. They're always together, always kinda sloppy. Sometimes they dress up like a swan or wear a big mouse head. Together, they're always looking to make a bold statement.

If you follow Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss on Instagram (@KraussingAround), you know what she's trying to say through fashion these days: It's all about your your nails, girl.

Krauss has taken her love of nails a bit further than the normal rock star. She even invited Ria Lopez, her 24-year-old manicurist, aboard the S.S. Coachella.

Top Five Reasons Outside Lands Is Better Than Coachella

A day at Outside Lands 2011 looking... pleasant.

Coachella 2012 has come and gone; now it's time to brag about our awesome tans and how we lost count of all of the onstage mindfucks. But while we Nor-Cal-ers try to switch our brains back to reality, let us also explain why we're really looking forward to Outside Lands, San Francisco's own major music festival.

5. It's cheaper
Before taxes, the face value for a three-day pass for Coachella was $320. (As the previous link demonstrates, they were going for significantly cheaper -- $238 -- in the days before the final weekend.) Meanwhile, three-day general admission tickets for Outside Lands started out at $195 and now cost $225. That's still less than the savviest Coachella-goer could have paid. And Explosions in the Sky, Santigold, Justice and Andrew Bird are just a few of the Coachella alumni who will be performing at the S.F. festival this August.

Best of Coachella Weekend Two: Sunday, April 22

By the third day of Coachella's second weekend -- the sixth and final day of this year's festival -- folks had more or less learned to ignore the dust and the heat. Here are our intrepid writers' favorite things about the final hours of the 2012 event.

Fucking Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre
Yeah, the show was exactly the same as last week's, down to the banter. But damn if we wouldn't watch that performance every Sunday night for the rest of the year, craptastic hologram and all. Perhaps most impressive was the lack of a backing track; even awkward, clunky old Dr. Dre was performing all of his rhymes live without a net. The cameos were plenty, and everyone made their songs count, from Wiz Khalifia to an undernourished Kurupt to a dreamy-and-shirtless 50 Cent to Eminem, who in his capri pants looked about as masculine as our baby yoga instructor. It was two decades of G-funk hits, surrounded by your best underdressed homies in the desert; call it the most fun you can have with your clothes off. -Ben Westhoff
