If I Was Going to Coachella....


I went last year and that was enough. It was pretty enjoyable, especially given that some good friends had a very comfy house near the event, but it's too much of a scene for me. That said, sets by Brian Jonestown, Leonard Cohen and Okkervil River were fantastic.

Nonetheless, my picks (bold are must sees):

Friday:
I likely wouldn't arrive until 2pm
210-255: Deer Tick
320-405: Avett Brothers
545-535: She & Him
650-740: Lucero
805-855: Grizzly Bear
905-1000: LCD Soundsystem
1050-end: Jay-Z

Saturday:
1205-1245: Frank Turner
100-150: John Waters
215-300: Portugal the Man
300-350: Old Crow Medicine Show
425-515: Beach House
Get a chicken parm
755-845: Faith No More
Get another chicken parm
1150-1245: Devo

Sunday
1255-140: Soft Pack
7-8 cotton candies
425-510: Matt & Kim
510-530: Sunny Day Real Estate
535-620: Julian Casablancas
745-855: Pavement
900-end: Thom Yorke

Glaring Frightened Rabbit omission on day two.

I decided not to go this year, because they were making you buy for all three days, rather than one day. It would've been about $600.00 for me to take the boy.

That's crap.

I've only heard of Frightened Rabbit. Perhaps I should change that. Or perhaps you should change that.

Parm?
