Coachella 2010! April 16-18

20 Jan

looks like fun

If somebody asked me to list the greatest (current) music festivals in the United States, I’d probably give them the following five in no particular order: Virgin Festival, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Sasquatch! Music Festival, and Coachella. Given that I will not be attending 4/5 of these events, pardon me while I gush about the one I will.

Welcome to Coachella 2010. A three day music fest located in sunny Indio California. From April 16-18, for the price of $269, you can rock your socks off, shake your groove thing, dance like a maniac, or sway awkwardly from side to side. The choice is yours! Currently in its 11th year, the show is bringing a solid mix of rock/indie/electronic/classic/contemporary/mellow/upbeat moods to the sunny April weekend. But what’s so special?

The Phenomenal Handclap Band: Music and tour dates

6 Oct
The Phenomenal Handclap Band, I mean what can I say that hasn’t already been said. These guys are burning up the underground scene with a live instrument funk fusion set. Yeah that’s right I just threw those words at your face like a wet cat. Know what it means? Well they basically sound like an electronic group, except they bust out the Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene real instrument schtick (I know, that’s so 2003,2004). But trust me, it works. Electronic dance music with instruments? That’s craziness right,  it’s like we’re seeing the future or something. Wait, i guess that would just make it dance music from the 70s and 80s. Oh right.
