i went down to LA this past weekend to see coachella and visit my folks.
flew down on friday night and out early monday morning. had two nice morning breakfasts with my folks and then headed out into the desert past palm springs. got a really late start sun to avoid the heat and get some extra sleep. (since i would be driving back sun night and only getting 3 hours of sleep before catching a plane.)
i went with juju (since ronda was on the east coast watching horses.) luckily ronda had hooked us up with vip passes with was pretty nice. the let us into the vip area where they had comfy couches to relax on after standing and baking all day outside. they also had a hard liqueur bar, which while pricey, was well appreciated.
i spent most my time at coachella running between tents seeing some bands for only long enough to determine that they sucked. here's what i saw:
Sat: Raveonettes, Peretz, Snow Patrol, Keane, Jean Grae, Wilco, Cafe Tacuba, The Secret Machines, Bauhaus, Mercury Rev
Sun: The Bravery, Roots Manuva, Z-Trip, The Arcade Fire, Aesop Rock, Matmos, British Sea Power, Nine Inch Nails, The Blood Brothers, Wolf Eyes, The Faint, Black Star
