COACHELLA: MUSE, FAITH NO MORE, THEM CROOKED VULTURES
Coachella festival. The lineup has some great artists: Them Crooked Vultures, The Specials, Muse, Faith No More, Les Claypool, Devo, Sly & The Family Stone, The Dead Weather, and de la soul. Plus some younger artists who I like, including LCD Soundsystem, She & Him, The Avett Brothers, MGMT, Coheed & Cambria, The Raveonettes, Sia, Corinne Bailey Rae, Porcupine Tree, Shooter Jennings, Band Of Skulls, Spoon and King Khan & The Shrines. And "Thom Yorke???" I presume that name is because Thom Yorke hasn't named his new project. Great lineup. I love that Pavement - the big deal reunion of the year - are billed beneath a cartoon band, Gorillaz.
