    Re: Coachella 2015: I wanna start a rumor...

    What's funnier/sadder is they even acknowledge that they're elsewhere for Weekend 2 but still list them as a "Safe Bet" for Weekend 1, proving how well they've paid attention.

    Re: UPCOMING SHOWS ON KIMMEL

    I assume because of the rain forecast, which I also assume is why Alt-J got canceled and then un-canceled. Anyone who had outdoor tickets got them revoked, though.
