    Just go by yourself; there's plenty of people to talk to.

    and even then, dire emergencies only include suicide or death to the offending party.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    Yeah, just go alone. I've been twice with friends and once alone and I think I enjoyed the alone year the most. Met a ton of new people and plus I could check out whatever bands I wanted whenever I wanted. It's not like you're going to be lonely in the middle of a billion people listening to dozens of awesome bands

    No matter what music I try to introduce them to (Atmosphere, Muse, Pixies, Creedence Clearwater Revival) they always go back to whatever "hip-hop" MTV tells them to listen to.

    Pathetic.

    But they're from Auburn/Kent WA. This won't mean much to most but explains everything to those in the know.

    I only have 1 friend that listens to good music and would love to go to Coachella. Only problem is that he's also my only friend without a job, so he doesn't go with me.

    Boarder... totally know what your talking about (native of Port Orchard, and lived in Bonney Lake for a few years). However, I'm fortunate enough to have a group who are dedicated to the cause. Though if I didn't I'd totally still go alone, its worth it.
