Yes, I 'Actually' Like It

More music to love, loathe, fear, and tragically fail to avoid

Given that the whole Coachella Festival thing had been something of a letdown so far, I began to have my misgivings as I herded myself into the big tent for My Bloody Valentine's set. However, as soon as the first blast of guitar blew through, I knew it was all going to be all right. Better than all right. All the bad omens and wrong turns and evil associations bleached away by white noise and cauterized by feedback. Suddenly, I realized that I was standing with my hands in the air and tears streaming down my face, like one of those disturbing people you see in the audience at a Christian-rock concert. I suppose that would make feedback and reverb my twin gods, and I do not dispute that. But I have no idea why I was crying. Unless it was the joy of having your hopes exceeded. And perhaps the sadness of once again touching something you will never hold.
