    DW is the bigger act.

    She's also officially playing Coachella 3 years in a row. Outside the Sahara, maybe only Patton or Homme had had that honour.

    Who's in Big Audio Dynamite 2011 aside from Jones? They've had some decent named alumni.

    Omar Rodriguez-Lopez is from the Mars Volta, not sure how obscure that is or if everyone took that for granted, but there it is.
