The Head and The Heart Weekend Update: Coachella Part Duex, Josiah Loves Radiohead, and yep more shows!

The Head and The Heart battled the weather last week going from the cold damp weather at Spring Jam, to the 104 degree heat in Indo California, at Coachella. Regardless the band stayed true to form and earned praise for both performances.

Spring Jam:

Before the show at the University of Minnesota at Coffman Front Plaza Josiah mentioned to the Minnesota Daily that: ”We feed off the different energy on campus,” he said.  “And it’s extra special for Charity [Rose Thielen] because she has family here in Minnesota.” Based off of the tweets that were popping up after the show, it’s safe to say that both the band, and the students had a great time.


According to Mercury News regardless of the heat “the musical selection from the indie folk/pop/rock group more than won the audience over as the set was filled with crowd members clapping, singing and dancing.” While the Examiner said “brought some folky fun that had their crowd smiling like lotto-winners.”
The Head and The Heart made it to number 6 on Fuse’s top 10 best moments of Coachella day 2 for a heart stirring performance by Charity during rivers and roads.

Jon C. Trask really said it best in his review of Saturdays performance:
“Since this whole “live music” thing for me is really about connecting with something that is fleeting, it was good to know that (at least sometimes) it’s not just in my head, but is part of an experience that’s even shared by the folks performing and creating on the stage…..So yeah….I guess that you could say I liked their set….a lot.”
He wrote a great full review of the performance, and you can check it out by clicking the link above.

Josiah, Charity, and Jon sat down with the team at 106.7 FM KROQ this past weekend, and based much of this article:The Head And The Heart’s Josiah Johnson – “Radiohead, That’s My All Time Favorite Band.” on the interview. Topics range from song writing, recording videos, the live performance, life on the road, and Josiah’s love of Radiohead. I Highly recommend taking the almost 9 minutes to listen to what they have to say on the video featured below.


Honorable mention:

Somehow missed this feature/review article from Hello Giggles promoting the band before the second Coachella weekend. I apologize.
