Coachella roster slowly takes shape (and getting misshapen)
06:25 PM PT, Jan 14 2008

The Photoshop geniuses have been at work again, crafting those nifty faux Coachella posters (yeah, that's one of the fakes below). And the website hasn't even started the countdown yet.

Next week, you can expect an announcement of the roster, which I was told cryptically might include a surprising veteran act or two (not David Bowie) -- and will not include the rumored set by the reunited My Bloody Valentine. Meanwhile, message boards and blogs are bursting with names of the acts heading to Indio for the April 25-27 festival, but precious little information has leaked regarding headliners. Among the bands expected below are hotshot locals Cold War Kids and Autolux. That's a nice start. Here you go, in no particular order -- comment away .

Death Cab for Cutie
The Breeders
Justice
Jens Lekman
Junkie XL
The Verve
UNKLE
