There was a time when I’d go to anything. That time was college, and that anything was Coachella. Yes, I went once and it was only because I really wanted to see Jack’s Mannequin and my BFF wanted to see Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bjork. We braved not only the horrendous traffic, but the heat and came out alive. Years later, you’d never find me there for a number of reasons – the main one not even being that it’s WAY too expensive, but because I don’t really care to stand outside with that many people to see bands I’m not that into. BUT because it’s right around the corner, I thought I’d give you my top 10 must-see when it comes to those two weekends in April AKA Coachella.
10. Alabama Shakes
I just think their singer is cool…
9. Azaelia Banks
You have to love someone who bad mouthed America…who’s from America…in Playboy.
8. Panda Bear
I’m holding out hope it’s a legit panda.
7. Jack White
Maybe that odd chick will come and surprise everyone and they’ll just be The White Stripes.
6. Touche Amore
How’d they get on this bill…
You have to see these rockin’ little guys!
4. Jenny Lewis
She used to be in a band with someone from Boy Meets World – reason enough.
Remember that Goyte song? Yeah, I barely did either…but she sang the part you are now singing in your head.
2. Ryan Hemsworth
Is this a lost Hemsworth brother?!
1. Jimmy Brooks
That bitch Ashley didn’t mess up his chance! He learned to walk again and he made it!
