Coachella 2011

It’s that time again. The Coachella Festival has announced its lineup, and it’s pretty stacked. Arcade Fire, Kanye West, the Strokes, Animal Collective, PJ Harvey, the National, Bright Eyes, Robyn, Ariel Pink, Interpol, Cut Copy, Crystal Castles, Lauryn Hill, Sleigh Bells, Cee-Lo, Lightning Bolt, the reunited Big Audio Dynamite and Suede, Duran Duran, Erykah Badu, the Black Keys, Titus Andronicus, Best Coast, the Kills, the New Pornographers, Lil B, HEALTH, OFF!, Odd Future, and the Chemical Brothers are among the acts playing.

I must say the 2011 Coachella lineup is pretty weak. I guess they didn’t know it was my 30th birthday that weekend? I’ve seen most of these bands and seen them at festivals to boot. Why the hell is Kanye and the Kings of Leon headlining? Kings of Leon have headlined EVERY SINGLE FESTIVAL in the world. Give it break! Then Kanye, really? The most overrated rapper ever, headlining??? INAPPROPRIATE! Maybe it’s best to wait for Lolla as planned? But it’s my 30th!?!?!?!? And, there is still hope. Empire of the Sun, Arcade Fire, Interpol (not a great live band and I will be seeing them in 3 weeks), the Black Keys (who I will see the night before), Chromeo, Warpaint, Foals, Scissor Sisters, etc. Everyone else I’ve already seen or don’t care to. Hmm… can we get the right crowd to go?
