So I know Coachella isn't quite the planning nightmare SxSW is -- given that there's less than a tenth of the bands playing, and it's at a single site -- but I've learned my lesson and have planned things carefully. I thought I'd share it with you. I'll be there Friday only, to check out our boys Dear and the Headlights, who open things up on the Mohave stage at 1, but if there's any demand for picks, I'm happy to provide them for the other two day in similar fashion. Feel free to complain about what I'm choosing to see or not see.
By the way, guys, if you're heading out Friday, be sure to make it out early enough to support DatH. It's ridiculous more (any) Arizona bands don't play Coachella, so this could go a long way toward that.
