I will be gone this weekend for Coachella, so no blog updates. I will, however, update my Twitter, which you can follow below:



Coachella Set Times Announced
April 14, 2009, 5:57 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

In case you haven’t heard, the set times for all the acts at Coachella have been announced and luckily for me there are not many conflicts with my dream schedule. I will have to choose between Morrissey and Beirut (leaning toward Moz), which will be tough, I’ll have to leave The Cure early to see Throbbing Gristle, and I will be forced to stand through Conor Oberst’s set to get a good spot for Leonard Cohen, but all-in-all I can’t complain.

My new schedule:

We are Scientists 2:50-3:40
The Black Keys 5:20-6:10 (leave early for…)
Conor Oberst 6:10-7:00
Leonard Cohen 7:30-8:30
Morrissey or Beirut 8:30-9:30
Paul McCartney 10:00

Drive-By Truckers 3:40-4:30
Amanda Palmer 5:00-5:50
TV on the Radio 6:25-7:15
Booker T. 7:30-8:20
M.I.A. 8:55-9:45
The Killers 10:25

Brian Jonestown Massacre 4:00-4:55
Antony and the Johnsons 5:25-6:15
Yeah Yeah Yeahs 6:15-7:15
(the rest of) Paul Weller until 7:50
My Bloody Valentine 7:50-9:00
The Cure 9:25
(leave about an hour or so after to catch…)
Throbbing Gristle 10:10

My adoring fans,

It regrets me to inform you that I will be away from home the next three Sundays, so I will not be able to update my Top Five Albums series during that time. I will be on Catalina Island the first two Sundays and then at Coachella on the third.

But do not fear, I will think of something worthwhile to put up instead.
