The way the sun catches the fabric on your onstage Coachella attire can make or break the whole ensemble. Not to take anything away from the sparkle of Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes, but when this dress lit up, it made her look more like the NBC peacock.
No one will ever say Maynard James Keenan doesn't know how to dress for shock value. After decades of sporting plenty of outlandish get-ups, we still weren't ready to gaze up this very earnest attempt to re-create the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" video with this mullet/mustache combo.
Sure, we should all have respect for an established elder statesmen like New Order's Bernard Sumner. But someone who's been around the block as long as him should know that wearing your band's T-shirt onstage is a cardinal sin.
For once it was 2 Chainz's choice of leather pants, instead of his lyrics, that made absolutely no sense to us.
We're trying to imagine how R. Kelly chose the Liberace-esque hat that he sported during his surprise (and random as hell) cameo during Phoenix's headlining set last night. Honestly, it looked more like a crown than anything else. We're willing to bet he needed something flashy enough to distract from the fact that he wasn't Daft Punk.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
