Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

Yours truly is a big fan of Coachella, having attended the festival for the past 4 years, and this news only ramps up my excitement for the 2010 edition. Muse last played Coachella in 2004, when their music wasn't being played during Monday Night Football broadcasts and promos for the ABC program V (I have often heard the Muse song, "Uprising," lead MNF into a commercial for V featuring that same song). Over-saturation of said song aside, Muse is a smart choice for the festival, especially for those fans who wait on pins and needles for Pavement to finally be confirmed as the Sunday night headliner. However, what we have now (according to Consequence of Sound) is Muse, and they will simply have to do until the tentative Coachella lineup is announced in late January.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
