Danny Elfman review brings Spider-Man, Batman, and The Simpsons to Coachella – review

And now it’s time for something completely different: Composer Danny Elfman is narrowly the oldest artist to perform at this year’s youth-focused Coachella festival. But based on his eclectic performance on an outdoor stage late Saturday night (April 16), his age is the least unusual in him.

For a start, there could be a few 68-year-old composers who would choose to perform topless so they better flaunt their tattooed torso. More appropriately, there are few composers of any age who can make a full orchestral sound like a garage punk band, as Elfman often does throughout his hour-long repertoire.

“Hi Coachella,” he said, shortly after playing the distorted 2021 single “Insects” and then slicing off his orchestral score from 2002. Spider Man. “My name is Danny Elfman, and I have a weird little show for you.” He is not joking.

Coachella bid farewell to innovative boy band Brockhampton – review

After nearly a decade of changing boundaries and breaking rules, the 21st century’s most innovative boy band decided to call it a day.

The sprawling Brockhampton collective in Texas, with its takeover of the massive hangar that represents the desert theater at the Coachella Music Festival on Saturday (April 16), decided to hang their hats for good. Well, at least that’s what fans were told in January of this year, when they revealed via social media that they would be taking an “unmarked hiatus” after Coachella, while thanking fans for their support over the past eight years.

However, after an hour of stunning viewing tonight, the video screens reveal that it’s not over yet. As the band leaves the stage, a pre-recorded clip of de-facto striker Kevin Mejar flashes as he talks to his bandmates. He has something to say to them. Then the screens go dark, leaving nothing but the words: “Brockhampton. Final album. 2022.” If the audience wasn’t acting crazy enough during the set, it’s enough to make them lose it altogether.

Disclosure that Khaled and the brass band joined during the high-energy rave group

The last time Surrey-born brothers Howard and Jay Lawrence played Coachella, in 2016, they boosted their live show with a number of notable guest singers including Lorde (for “Magnets”), Sam Smith (for “Latch” and “Omen”) and AlunaGeorge (for “White Noise”).

By such high standards, tonight’s performance was relatively light on surprises – with the exception of Khaled’s late appearance in the first-ever live performance of their 2020 collaboration Know Your Value. Perhaps this is a sign that the Lawrence brothers are now more confident in their ability to keep the Coachella crowd captivated by minimal bells and whistles.

“When the fire starts to burn” the whole crowd moves in unison, while the phone lights flash to light up the “night.” Although the festival played yesterday, there’s no sign of Slowthai other than the pre-recorded format on the big screens of Grammy-nominated “My High.”

The duo concluded their set with the party song “Tondo,” joined on stage by a trumpet section of the brass band, but the focus never left the siblings center stage during the kind of high performance that the Coachella stage was made for.

However, it is the unannounced appearance of Chinese superstar Jackson Wang that is making the festival lose its collective sanity.

With his silver-blue hair and red gloves on majestic screen, glamorous Wang snakes his way through ten minutes of Michael Jackson-inspired choreography with a flair for a Las Vegas wizard, leaving many fans more than happy with his arrival, but also wondering why. He hasn’t been on stage for at least an hour.

Here fans are reacting to the “Wang Devouring Festival” performance of Coachella.
