After mugging with Good Charlotte’s tattooed frontman, the red-track-suit-wearing quartet caught a shuttle bus to the River shopping center and hopped in their tour bus to the Coachella artist’s lot. (Jessica Gelt / Los Angeles Times)

Fredrik and Kjetil get naked and flex. “The smell of these suits is not comfortable in the van,” said T.J., after the band stopped to pick up three ladies at the shopping center. “When you wash them they’re clean but if you sweat just a little the sweat will trigger bad, bad memories of yesterday’s gig.” (Jessica Gelt / Los Angeles Times)
