the Cure - Live at Coachella 2004


Day two of Coachella 2004 featured a lineup filled with emotional boys. Acts like Thursday, Cursive and Bright Eyes made the girls swoon with passionate, visceral music. So it only seemed proper for The Cure, the mother of all emo bands, to headline the main stage Sunday night. Though 20 minutes late, the group was greeted with wild applause. Robert Smith, in his standard-issue black-pajama uniform and Paul Mitchell hair, opened the set with a new tune called "Lost."
While the obtuse band suffered through a couple of broken strings and occasional sound trouble, it managed to warm up by mid set. Early highlights included "Fascination Street," swollen with its extended intro of shimmering guitars and lunging bass line. Then the warm opening notes of "Love Song" set off a wave of shrieks.
