Generally I hold Coachella in the same regard as Sundance--I go "pfffft" at both of them, mostly because I figure I'll never go to either (I sort of forget that I went to Sundance once while at the Y)
But that was only until the Coachella lineup was announced today. Now I'm already wondering if this might be how I want to spend my Golden Birthday weekend.
Why the change of heart? Well, if the bold print weren't obvious enough, mainly because the Jesus and Mary Chain are reuniting for the festival--and if they aren't touring (and probably even if they are), I really need to be in the desert on the evening of April 27th. It doesn't hurt that I could catch Interpol and Jarvis Cocker that same night, either.
And then Saturday the 28th I can get my Arcade Fire on after dealing with the ultimate dance/dance-rock lineup of the Rapture/LCD Soundsystem/!!!/and MSTRKRFT.
So that's something I'll be thinking about for the next few months, whether or not I want to do this thing.
