If you've followed our extensive Coachella 2013 coverage largely focused on the party scene and celebrity sightings, you may think we forgot all about the whole reason hundreds of thousands of people journey to the desert for two weekends. Rest assured team GofG L.A. has not. In fact, because our stage-hopping time at Weekend 1 was quite compromised by the party agenda, we returned for Weekend 2 just to get more festival music action. And even though we've been doing Coachella for years, the scene on the polo field is always an awesome spectacle that takes our breath away. Over and over again, countless times in a single day. Between the stunning desert backdrop, spectacular shows, bros bro-ing out, art installations, fashion, staggering crowds, mind-blowing heat and run-of-the-mill WTF moments, here's a look at the scenes from the festival grounds of Coachella 2013.
Everyone getting pumped for Stagecoach?? Oh, not this year? Well there's lots of really awesome non-Confederate-loving, corn-fed live music happening here in L.A. over the next few days that can probably makeup for missing Toby Keith. You know, Depeche Mode playing the smallest venue they've ever performed in L.A., two Crystal Castles shows--that sort of thing. We've gathered it all for you here in this handy guide to L.A.'s best live music to see this week, so get up and go see a show, dammit!

With the temperatures blazing in the Coachella Valley over the weekend, shade and cold, delicious beverages, preferably beside a pristine body of purified water, was the ideal scenario to keep cool for all land mammals in the area, including this year's festival artists. So it was a good thing Soho House decided to swoop in for a three-day pop-up oasis with BACARDI at a sprawling estate where lineup acts like La Roux, Major Lazer, New Order and Vampire Weekend could take refuge in the lap of luxury.

Presented by American Eagle Outfitters' intimate apparel line, Aerie, take a peek inside FILTER Yacht Club's Weekend 2 rendition featuring bands like Cayucas, Feathers and more.
