Have you seen the lineup for this year’s Coachella Festival? I’m stoked!
1/23 UPDATE: The 2008 Coachella lineup is now official, and no it doesn’t include Mark Mark or Paula Abdul. It does include a lot of bands I hope will play ACL or Bonnaroo this year, especially The Verve, Portishead, Love & Rockets, My Morning Jacket and Spiritualized. Why am I hoping that these bands will play other festivals? I’ve been to Coachella three times — 2001, 2004, 2005 — but haven’t seriously considered going back. Even if the tickets weren’t getting more and more expensive, why spend a three-day weekend in the desert heat when you can see the same bands in Manchester, TN or Austin?
