Furthering a curious (and welcome) slate of abrasive rock at Coachella 2009, Austin rising stars Fucked Up moved a small crowd to a joyful frenzy, the band’s lead singer spending the majority of the set leaning over the front wall of the photo pit, offering the mic to anyone willing to scream along. It was a refreshing insertion of DIY hardcore’s personal, primal mentality into what can be, at times, an overly corporate feeling for a music festival. Two of No Age’s members even joined on the finale for a mosh-enducing rendition of Black Flag’s “Nervous Breakdown.”
