    Default Wish Coachella a REAL 10th Happy Birthday Bitches!

    It's true, 10 years ago today (Oct. 9, 1999) was the first day ever of the inaugural Coachella festival, which means today (Oct. 9, 2009) is the 10th anniversary/birthday/whatever!

    I was trying to think of different ways to celebrate this, but haven't had much time (I wanted to do a special section on my site where people who attended the original event, could share their story, but I never got that far)....anyway, I am streaming Underworld's 1999 set on my site right now (www.coachellarecordings.com), and if you want to watch some 1999 videos, I have both Tool's and RATM's entire 1999 performances up on www.coachellarecordings.com/video (just search for Tool or Rage or whatever). Maybe I'll stream other 1999 sets later today. But wow, it's 10 yrs old already...wish I could have been there, but I had never heard of back it then...my only exposure to what music festivals out there were Reading, Lollapalooza, and Woodstock at that point.

    ok ok ok here's the idea. go ahead and laugh.

    Coachella Fantasy Set List Mix

    yes. embarassingly, dishearteningly musically geeky.


    the setup: You can have any band from any time period play Coachella. You can do time travel, you can bring people back from the dead. What you can't do is make up bands that never existed.

    You set the scene: You pick the stage/tent. You pick the time slot. Then you make a playlist of what the band/artist will play. Then you make a mix of that playlist and post it. It should be relatively realistic, but it's your show, it's your fantasy, so it doesn't really need to be.

    then when you're done, describe the setup ("this is david bowie right after he released Diamond Dogs, and he and his Mick Ronson-led band are playing the outdoor stage at 7:50pm") and then post your mix.

    ready. set. go.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I guess tomorrow is the perfect time to have our party because there will be plenty of board members to celebrate with! & the Prince theme doesn't hurt

    Thank you Coachella for creating a European style festival the very same year I realized my dream of going to the Reading Festival in England. I got to go to three festivals that year when I started out thinking I'd only get to go to one.

    Compared to today, yeah. Hardly anyone there. That weekend it was my step son, my adopted son and three of their friends. I was the designated driver since I was the dad. If I remember correctly, it was cool, breezy and fucking dusty as usual. We had parked by BD's house since she lived at the Polo grounds back in 99. That weekend was my first time experiencing any kind of mosh pit. Yeah, good clean fun without the worry of getting thrown in jail for assault. When everything was over with, I can remember thinking to myself that this weekend was only the start of something that would eventually become huge. That something is Coachella. History was made that weekend back in 1999.
