IAN MACKAYE WILL NEVER PLAY COACHELLA. :(

I don't understand how this is at all relevant. What does Ian Mackaye have to do with the Weakerthans? And even if there's something I'm missing, I do believe that The Evens played in either '04 or '05, too lazy to look up the year, but I definitely saw them and the sound was getting drowned out by the bass from the Sahara Tent. So Ian Mackaye apparently WILL play Coachella after all.

I like the idea, but I'm not sure I see it happening. They toured the west coast a couple months back. Did I hear them in Starbucks yesterday playing over the loudspeaker? It sounded like them. It made me feel weird.

I saw these guys a couple years ago in Portland. Some band called Arcade Fire opened for them.
