Coachella Lineup Is Here!

Holy moly with pepperoni and cheese on top! The 2011 Coachella Lineup is here, and its unbelievable! It’s like… If Coachella were a person, they didn’t just break me off a piece of their Kit Kat bar, but instead, bought me an entire Kit Kat Factory and then sold it so they could buy a Snickers factory because they know I like Snickers better. It’s the apple of my eye, the honey in my tea and the Patrick Carney to my Dan Auerbach. I’m thinking about asking it on a date.

The headliners include: Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, The Strokes, The Black Keys, Animal Collective, Interpol, Mumford and Sons, and The National… Not to mention the other 200 amazing artists. The lineup this year is Lollapalooza ‘07 and Glastonbury ‘10’s baby that they abandoned in the California desert. It has an eclectic mix of Indie Rock, Pop, Electronic, Dance and Folk.

I haven’t been so excited to see a group of musicians in my entire life. I keep playing the game “If someone had a gun to your head and said you can only see 3 bands a day, which 3 would you pick.” Well, I’ve been playing for 12 hours and that figurative gun is still there. The one thing I’m completely certain of is my dream to run into this guy:

    Death From Above 1979 reunion is enough to warrant the cross country trip for me.

  5. PJ says:

    Pbbbth. No comedy acts?

  6. Clif says:

    I live literally 30 feet away from that.

  7. geoff says:

    the line-up isn’t my cup of tea but that many bands is pretty epic for whoever attends
