Coachella Nixes Single Day Tickets

Goldenvoice now insists that you buy in for all three days of its Indio fest, saying "single- and two-day people are clogging up the hotels and making it so people who want to go for three days can't find a hotel." On the flip, camping prices are down. (At least all three days look greatMore »

Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Rock

We've seen indie rockers reach out to hip-hop's most recognizable collective (or at least the most recognizable hip-hop collective to indie rockers). But lately, it's been Wu-Tang Clan making the moves. This week Judgment Night 2009 is in full force, with genres meshing again and RZA, GZA, and company at the heart of it. Of… More »

Indie Rockers Play Dress-Up For The New York Times

Coachella is already the most fashionable of the summer festivals by virtue of its proximity to Los Angeles, so this year the NYT ran with the glam, taking a bagful of high fashion garments and draping them on a bunch of rock stars for a fun little photo gallery. The spread runs in this week'… More »

Lollapalooza 2009 Lineup: Now With 100% More Animal Collective

It seems like Coachella was only yesterday. Since this year's Lolla headliners (and then some) leaked long ago, we already knew about Beastie Boys, Depeche Mode, Jane's Addiction, Tool, Kings Of Leon, the Killers, Lou Reed, Decemberists, Neko Case, and Andrew Bird. Not too shabby. But almost too shabby. If that assortment of talent didn't… More »

Coachella 2009: Cure, MBV, Antony Assault The Sound System

Surprise, it wasn't My Bloody Valentine's 15-minute aural assault "You Made Me Realise" that caused Sunday's biggest audio mishap. Organizers cut the speakers during the Cure's "Fire In Cairo" (two songs into a third encore) only to watch the band play three more songs before the power was killed completely, forcing Robert & Co. to… More »

Coachella 2009: M.I.A., Superchunk, And So Much Sun

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy The weather's getting hotter by the day, but we refuse to cave: We arrived at the grounds when the sun was at its peak. Amrit's given to wearing shorts at this point, but Brandon sticks by his Levi's because pale white legs are no good in the Southern California… More »

Coachella 2009: Moz, Macca, Cohen Lead Friday’s Nostalgia Parade

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy Our trek into Indio went so smoothly this year that we've both become paranoid about something going incredibly wrong at any moment, but so far we've made it through without broken bones or spirits. In fact, even though the day started with extreme lines and heat, once we passed… More »

Coachella 2009 Set Times Announced

This week Brandon will pack his sunscreen and I will not because brown skin has its privileges occasionally, and we will fly to the desert, once more, for this year's Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival.

Coachella 2009 Line-Up

This big announce was supposed to come days ago, and of course people (us) freaked that it didn't. But as Goldenvoice President Paul Tollett put it, "We're not stalling, we're still working on the show. Everything we do is in service of the show, not in service of the announcement of the show." Whether they… More »
