Coachella 2022: Doja Cat Review Massive guitars and mega pyro make for the flashiest rock show of the weekend

Doja Cat’s retirement comes at an odd time, with her first Grammy award under her belt and two renowned Coachella appearances this month.

But that’s exactly what the Los Angeles musician indicated she’d do earlier this year, after changing her Twitter handle to “I quit” on March 25 in response to backlash from her Paraguayan followers.

Her awe-inspiring performance at Coachella on Sunday (17 April) is confirmation that leaving music is the absolute last thing this genre-defying, near-perfect pop singer should be doing.

She arrives to a wailing guitar solo – and manages twice as many wardrobe changes than Megan Thee Stallion did last night – to put on a full-fledged show.

Coachella 2022: Doja Cat Review

Doja Cat is a Tik-Tok sensation as well as a rock’n’roll sensation. On 2021’s irresistible “Woman,” she is accompanied by a slightly cheesy Sunset Strip caricature of a “rawk boy,” complete with denim cutoffs, shades, and long blond hair, yet it somehow works. Perhaps because such genuine theatrics isn’t regarded with eye rolls in this state, which gave birth to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Things get even heaver when rapper Rico Nasty joins her for “Tia Tamera,” an industrial hip hop song, and Doja’s love of clothes that pay homage to leather daddy bondage clothing and burning pyro makes it feel like we’re at a full-throttle metal event.

She also delivers us dubby house, Bjork-inspired electronics, Sade-style slow songs, and Kate Bush-worthy oddity as she flits between genres. She even performs “Vegas,” a glitzy “Hound Dog” sample track from Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis movie, “Kiss Me More,” alongside “Kiss Me More.”
