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. You already know the originally announced lineup is up an M.I.A. and down an H&LA, but… More »

Hercules & Love Affair Drop Out Of Coachella

The LA Times confirms H&LA are no longer Indio bound. No reasons being offered yet. Sucks, but you can probably make do with all these bands + an M.I.A. More »

M.I.A. Joins Coachella ’09 Line-Up

She tweeted the news last night, and it was confirmed earlier today. Maya replaces dropout Amy Winehouse on Saturday and it'll be her first performance since giving birth to a beautiful baby boy not named Ickitt. (UPDATE: He's named Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman. Big difference.)… More »

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… More »

McCartney, Katy Perry Headlining Coachella Claims Ryan Seacrest

The fake Coachella flyers come earlier and earlier, but this year the official reveal is weeks late. KROQ's Kevin and Bean promised they would announce the line-up yesterday morning, but did not deliver. Now Ryan Seacrest has posted an "official 2009 lineup" on his blog. According to LA Times, the American IdolMore »

The One Where We Gossip About The Coachella Lineup

Today the hot buzz around the watercooler in the office that none of us are at is all about Coachella '09! Not the fake lineup, but the real lineup. Because LAist.com said that consequenceofsound.com said that there are a bunch of confirmed artists. If you are confused about what it means to… More »

Coachella 2009 Line-Up Not Revealed

Next year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place 4/17-4/19. That's two weeks earlier than usual, so speculation as to which bands will be heading to Indio has already begun. Last year, we all had a good eyeroll at this fake out. This year's faux flyer dropped in the comments of ourMore »

Tegan & Sara Are Indie Rock’s Laurel & Hardy

When it comes to cute, Canadian, creatively coiffed, twindie rockers, Tegan and Sara Quin are among the best. Did you know they're witty? The duo's sisterly bickering is a big hit on YouTube. After a triumphant performance at Coachella, the girls talked to AP about their comedy stylings. "Sometimes I like it more… More »

Coachella: Sunday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy When we arrived Sunday we didn't have to wait in line or battle our way through the parking lots. Not because we're some important VIP's -- there just wasn't anyone there. The crowd picked up a bit throughout the day, and was more than respectable for the last couple… More »

Prince Covers Radiohead At Coachella

Sound issues plagued Prince's set from where we stood yesterday, and in any videos we found on YouTube, but hey ... last night was cool. In fact, Coachella was "the coolest place on earth" last night, according to his Purpleness. Morris Day and Sheila E. both sang leads during the set, but it wa… More »

Coachella: Portishead Kick Our Asses @ The Main Stage

By Brandon Stosuy For their first U.S. show in close to a decade, Portishead showed up as a chilly six-piece, delivering Coachella's set to beat: Beth Gibbons, intense in black, looked both devastated and triumphant while Geoff Barrow rotated between drums/electronics/turntables, and Adrian Utley manned various guitars. The Bristolers brought it -- both the sound… More »

Coachella: Saturday In Photos (Starring Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Death Cab, Kraftwerk, Portishead & Prince)

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy Well, this was the best Saturday we've had in awhile. We started the day with an afternoon set by SM & the Jicks. Malkmus, properly protected from the UV rays in his shades, outback hat, and long-sleeved shirt rolled-up just so, tempered the heat with his as-usual funny between-song… More »

Coachella: Sunday’s Sets To See

At a forecasted 103º, today's gonna be the hottest day yet, kids, so maybe we should all sleep in a little. Unless you want to see Perry Farrell solo. The first set worth our perspiration is coming from I'm From Barcelona, mainly because we're curious to know if they can fit everyone on the Mojave… More »

Coachella: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy You know what sucked for every band following Les Savy Fav yesterday? The fact that they had to follow Les Savy Fav yesterday. Under intensely blazing Indio heat, Harrington and his hockey blogging art-punkers set the bar high for hijinx and outright spectacle right from the go, with Tim… More »

Coachella: The Verve Sound Like A Sonnet, Flash Impeccable Cheekbones @ The Main Stage

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy While watching Verve's main stage set last night we found ourselves wondering something we don't usually wonder: What would it be like to live inside the head of Richard Ashcroft for a day? The lanky, impeccably cheekboned vocalist -- who can easily pull off wearing a shirt opened to… More »

While we get going cropping beautiful photos for you, enjoy this selection of fan captured vids from the Polo Field. Tega… More »

Coachella: Saturday’s Sets To See

Yesterday we pinballed between stages and tents to catch a whopping twelve sets (hello, Guinness). Today we plan to see a lot of music again, though when the sun starts setting, we'll be planting ourselves at the Coachella Stage for the quadruple threat of Death Cab For Cutie/Kraftwerk/Portishead/Prince. That's diverse. Before we dig in, there… More »
