china is the gift of choice for a 20th anniversary. But considering
that Lollapalooza debuted in 1991 with a lineup that featured Jane's
Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, and Ice-T, the only thing Perry Farrell
& Co. should've been doing with china for the music fest's big 2-0
is breaking it over unsuspecting festivalgoers' heads.
Saturday at Coachella brought Amanda Palmer to the WFNX house to chat up her high-school Neutral Milk Hotel musical and perform, as has become the custom, yet another Radiohead cover on ukulele. This time it was "Fake Plastic Trees." Plus Cage the Elephant play the hit, and Fleet Foxes speak into the microphone without spontaneously breaking into falsetto harmony -- a first, quite possibly.
