Live from Coachella: Danny DeVito, Faith No More, the XX and Hot Chip

Hey look! Danny DeVito! Our man Chris Victorio caught him the pit for deadmau5 last night. Just thought we'd share it with ya. (Editor's Note: Andrew Youssef also caught DeVito during LCD Soundsystem's set!

In other news: Cool moment just now...

Faith No More opened their set with a faithfully serene rendition of "Reunited" by Peaches & Herb. No gag, no false starts, just Mike Patton in a red suit and cane, crooning like Burt Baccarat. The punch line came when the band immediate segued into their trademark riffs n' squawking.

Earlier, the XX hypnotized a surprisingly boisterous crowd as the sun set. The band's music seems intimate; today, though, it soundtracked crowd surfers--including one guy in a wheel chair. Later on the same stage, Hot Chip got crowd members moving as furiously as if they were in the Sahara tent. The blokes didn't do much on stage: Hot Chip lets the beats and the light show do the heavy lifting. Smart... after all, it's kinda hot out.
