and to close out january, coachella 2009 lineup announced
so coachella 2009 lineup:
I know right? this is much, much bigger than coachellas as of late (yes I know prince whatevs), with three big adds that have been requested by concert-goers since, well, ever: morrissey, leonard cohen (first US show in HOW long?), and my bloody valentine. I’m not a fan of morrissey (this is information for a later post), but it’s still a big deal.
so, tentative must-sees: paul mccartney, franz ferdinand (shut up new album is special), leonard cohen, conor oberst, beirut, the black keys, girl talk, the ting tings, ghostland observatory (where you been guys), crystal castles, we are scientists, n.a.s.a., the presets, the hold steady, peanut butter wolf, noah and the whale, the bug, steve aoki, people under the stairs (!), tv on the radio, fleet foxes, mstrkrft (I won’t miss them again!), atmosphere, crookers, hercules and love affair, superchunk, the bloody beetroots, surkin & para one, calexico, liars, bob mould band, glass candy, ariel pink’s haunted graffiti (it’s like the shaggs but with synthesizers), the cure, my blood valentine, yeah yeah yeahs, throbbing gristle, X (I mean come on, X!?), antony & the honsons, public enemy, okkervil river, clipse, sebastien tellier, late of the pier, junior boys, brian jonestown massacre (although the last time I saw them was a brian jonestown dissasacre), supermayer, no age, themselves, friendly fires, the knux, and the mexican institute of mother fuckin sound.
there it is. 52 bands that I am excited to see. that is a ticket SALE.
