The Coachella Update

April 1, 2010

MY Coachella update, that is 😉 Sometimes we need to have these nerdout moments. And sometimes when we have them, we also have blogs. So, sorry in advance if this bores you.

Well, in personnel news, I am kind of pissed that most of my friends appear to be *lame*, or they don’t want it badly enough, or don’t want to spend the money (blah blah blah!!!! that’s all I hear. haha) so now I have to get down to the festival alone, and then meet up with EJ once I have already assembled the camp site. Oh well. I would say this only diminishes my excitement overall by about 10%. Well, it could end up being a lot more depending who I find to ride down there with 😉

ANYWAY! Let us talk of band-age. I’ve gone through the lineup now checking out bands and finding the most promising stuff (according to my tastes, obviously) so now I’m making my priority lists, like a true festival nerd. Definitely going to write longer entries about some of them beforehand, too.

(sorry for the weird formatting. also, sadly I am not loser enough to link all these to their myspaces or whatever, you can find them easily with this neat thing called google. also these are pics I took from various things during last year’s fest.)
