Coachella Annouces Set Times & Sells Out!
Coachella - Indio, CA's annual alternative, rock, hip-hop and electronic music festival to be held this weekend, April 16 - 18, at Empire Polo Fields (same venue as Phish's Festival 8) - has officially sold out. So for those that do have tickets to the three-day fest, Coachella has finally released 2010 set times, which you can customize with the Coachooser. And our friends @festivalcrasher have even done some of the legwork for you when it comes to making those life-or-death, conflicting set time choices...pretty sweet, eh?
Though I'm super stoked to be seeing The Disco Biscuits this weekend - injury and all - I'm pretty jealous of you guys heading out to Coachella. I mean...LCD Soundsystem, Jay-Z, Passion Pit, Sleigh Bells, Yeasayer, Aeroplane, Muse, Hot Chip, the XX, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Thom Yorke, Phoenix, Local Natives and The Big Pink to name a few. GEEEEZE!
And speaking of LCD Soundsystem, I suppose my envy will subside a bit by listening to a couple (or all - search for that yo self, but James Murphy's plea to concert-goers at Webster Hall was definitely NOT heard) of the leaked tracks from their forthcoming album, This Is Happening? Doubtful. Especially since it's getting really positive reviews. And, of course, they're playing Stubb's the week of June 5-12 - the one week every year that I take off for the beach to be with the fam, which also now happens to be the week that I'm missing about six shows that come to mind right off the top of my head. Grrrr :-)
