don't stop the beat.

for the past two or three years i've been trying to attend "coachella" down in indio, ca (palm springs). every single year has ended with me being frustrated because none of my friends had the money or knew any of the bands playing during the three day festival. yes, it is understandable, but i still wanted to go. well, this year looks like it is about to change for the better. after reading the lineup and letting a friend of mine know that 'the killers' will be headlining one day, was enough for them. tickets for the music festival went on sale at 9 am this very morning.

for $99 day passes and $269 three-day passes, i feel is completely worth it. from 11am until midnight, for three days, exceptionally great music plays all around. you simply can't escape it, and why would you if you're paying that amount? 77 days until the big days(s) arrive, but who's counting? besides the coachella website and myself, of course. i can't seem to pull myself away from the site, for i keeping scanning the lineup with excitement. if i can, im going to try and convince my friends that the three day pass is worth the money in so many ways.

in no particular order, i can not wait to see the following performances from:

april 17th
paul mccartney (he's a beatle, for goodness sake.)
leonard cohen (beautiful music)
silversun pickups
conor oberst and the mystic valley band (my love for bright eyes.)

amy winehouse (i have a special place in my heart for her.)
