COACHELLAwhereyoucanfindmeSUNDAY

Because they’re one of the only bands in LA that matters…

Because she is a goddess and sings to me and only me…

Lykke Li & Bon Iver doing ‘Dance Dance Dance’ in L.A from Lykke Li on Vimeo.
So I can squeeze out the rest of the tears left over from Friday…
Antony and the Johnsons


So I can go deaf with a smile…

Need I explain?
Public Enemy & The Roots - “Bring the Noise” (Live)

COACHELLAwhereyoucanfindmeSATURDAY

Because I am interested in the truth.
Liars - “SexBoy”

Because their kind of awesome even when they’re playing on fire escapes in NYC and their sound sucks.
TV on the Radio – “Dancing Choose”

To help her shake off that postnatal weight…
M.I.A. – “Sunshowers”

Beards.
Band of Horses – “Is There a Ghost”

Beards, and because it will be sunset and a good time to sway…
Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal

Or, if not, maybe some of this…
Crookers (vs. Kid Cudi) - “Day ‘N’ Nite”

To rock the fuck out while being reminded of how (not so) crazy I am…
TURBONEGRO - “GO NATIVE!”
Turbonegro - “Sailor Man”

Gonna party like it’s 1999, literally…
The Chemical Brothers – “Hey Boy Hey Girl”

And then like it’s 2006…
MSTRKRFT “Easy Love” (2006 is for Suckers)

COACHELLA whereyoucanfindme FRIDAY

Dancing my face off…
The Presets – “My People”

Buraka Som Sistema – “Sound of Kuduro”

So I can say I’ve seen him…
Paul McCartney “A Day in the Life” (Live at Anfield Stadium, Liverpool 2008)

To cry just a little bit…
Leonard Cohen – “Chelsea Hotel”

To feel both worldly and dumb…
Beirut – “Elephant Gun”

To hear this song…
Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band - “Cape Canaveral”

To see if they’re any better live than the rest of the bands they sound like…
White Lies – “Death”
(OK. Would’ve liked to have shown the video here, but the embedding function’s been disabled on youtube so thieving heathens like me will be discouraged from helping promote the band apparently. And so I say “good luck to you, sirs.”)

To really listen…
M. Ward “Hold Time”

With hopes they’re fun…
Los Campasinos – “You! Me! Dancing!”

Because Ian Curtis is dead, Primal Scream isn’t on the bill and The Jesus and Mary Chain are still in some form of limbo.
A Place to Bury Strangers – “To Fix The Gash In Your Head”

COACHELLA ‘08

The voices in my head nearly convinced me to take Coachella off so I could enjoy actually enjoy the music, buy then I ended up busting out the camera to discuss sex, drugs, Dwight Yoakam, Sean Penn and all things Coachella with some of the peeps, including the lovely Dita Von Teese, on the magic bus and out on the field:

NOTE: I ‘borrowed’ this ‘High Definition’ camera from Best Buy just in time for Coachella, only to find out after shooting in HD, that converting it for web viewing blows. Hence the crappy lo-res carnival mirror shiz below. So AV Team Members, if you got ‘em, please hit me up with some solid HD export settings so I can pretty these suckers up.
