what assumptions did you have about the overall coachella experience that were proven wrong when you got there?
in 2004, i had assumed that our friends would be able to buy my saturday ticket and just leave it on the tire of their car or something till i got there and could pick it up. they told me that wasn't a good idea and had me meet them at the gate instead. it wasn't until i saw the size of the parking lot that i realized how impossible that would have been.
i also assumed the bravery would be worth watching in either 2005 or 2006... boy was i wrong!
