Kings of Leon at Coachella, Friday April 15, 2011

By Rami Evens-Esh

Sometimes main stage acts can be a let down. Not Kings of Leon. When I was at my cousin's house house showing her the awesome Coachella tickets, she knew none of the bands but Kings of Leon, so I chose to watch them diligently and caught myself knowing the majority of songs just from frequent radio play. Maybe this is because Kings of Leon have recently become one of the biggest bands in the world, and with that intention. Best part about the show? They sound just like they should on stage: flawless. Anthony Caleb Followill, Ivan Nathan Followill and Michael Jared Followill, brothers, along with cousin Cameron Matthew Followill sounded so spot-on that you could recognize them from a mile away. They played Sex on Fire, Use Somebody, Molly's Chamber and more. They weren't the best headliners of 2011, but they seemed to have almost as many fans as The Chemical Brothers, and the drugs that everyone was on by that time garnered plenty of people to sing along for their set.
