NEW ORDER @ COACHELLA | 4/13/13

While over at the main stage the bulk of the Coachella crowd was enduring Phoenix with the hope that Daft Punk would come out -- they instead got R. Kelly -- a smaller but perhaps-more-enthusiastic crowd got a first-rate greatest hits set from New Order last night. Bernard Sumner, the group's frontman, apologized immediately for their infrequent live appearances. They prefer to spend their time relaxing and enjoying life, rather than working, he noted, which is perhaps not the world's most rock and roll sentiment, but echoes a theme of "Regret," which they performed in a familiar way.
