Best Stage Patter: Julian Casablancas

Julian Casablancas definitely got the award for the best, most honest between-song banter of Coachella 2014. "Thank you for choosing us among the musical buffet," he said to a packed house during his late-afternoon set Saturday in the Mojave Tent. "This music is designed to alienate all the right people." And delight them. Rocking a leather jacket in the 80-degree heat, the eternally cool Casablancas skipped Strokes hits, and even his own previously released solo material, for an entire set of challenging, experimental songs from his upcoming, unreleased album with backing band the Voidz. And he still kicked ass, anyway.
