COACHELLA BACK. And, this year, the bacchanalia stretches across two weekends featuring identical lineups, as well as an interim week of non-Coachella shows in L.A., so if you’re looking for live music in your city and there’s none to be had outside of that one bar band that always plays Happy Hour on Tuesdays at O’Halligan’s, this is why. This year’s Coachella contains another dizzying slate of intriguing prospects, and today we’ll run down 15 shows not to miss this weekend, featuring Radiohead, Pulp, Kendrick Lamar, God Speed! You Black Emperor, and more. Hit the gallery for the set time-sequential list.

Death Grips (5:45 Friday, Gobi): This Sacramento noise-rap crew remains pretty mysterious, despite their brand-new major-label contract, and not many of us have seen them live yet. But their squealing, scraping neo-Bomb Squad attack should absolutely bludgeon its way through the festival grounds. Despite all the great reunited hardcore bands on this year's bill, this could be the act to beat for sheer loud immediacy.
