    Less traffic. More fun, less worrying.

    Actually being there away from your house. You won't get a wave of "wooooooo" in the air at your home.

    You won't run the risk of missing any sets during the traffic nightmare.
    Thursday night camping is just an extra night to party.
    You'll get a spot that's closer to the festival.
    You won't have to worry about setting up your tent while the festival is going.

    Because Thursday night is the best pure party night.
    The other nights are great, but people are tired after a long day of partying in the fucking hot ass desert.
    Friday - Sunday you drink the champagne, Thursday night you pop the cork.

    I came in on Friday morning in 2007. Huge mistake. By the time we got in, we were already tired from getting up super early and traveling.

    I came in as the sun set for the past two years on Thursday. Set my tent up in relative dark, while dozens of people did the same around me. Afterwards just casually roaming around, chilling in the cool night breeze, being happy to be there.... there's no way I'd show up on a Friday, given the option of Thursday.

    No, but these beasts do exist. It's not quite 40 oz., but it's close enough.

    My buddy bought two pabst blue ribbons off some guy for 5 bucks at outside lands.

    Kept telling me how he was sick and wanted to throw up....so finally I just told him to stfu and barf already.

    The guy turns and barfs all over our other buddy....about ten minutes before the first act was to go on.

    Starting your vacation a day "early" is always a plus in my opinion, and Thursday night at the campgrounds can't be beat.

    I don't camp anymore!

    So it's pull into the Motel in downtown Palm Springs!
    Adjust my altitude, Enjoy some wine or beer. Chill for awhile. Walk to the weekly Thursday arts and crafts event in Palm Springs. Buy some good munchies from local bakeries. Have dinner at Pomme-Frite (awesome Belgian restaurant). Maybe hit up one of the bars walking back to the motel and enjoy another drink and some pre-show music. Party in the room till it's time for bed and get a good nights sleep for day one at Coachella!

    Damn, I love this message board right now. I'll be rolling through Palm Springs with my mom (haha, don't knock it! She's a legit ride to the show!), grabbing a fat plate of mexican food, feeling fucking amazing to be alive at this point in time. After touring the city, she's dropping me off and heading home. Campgrounds are the place to be, if you can do it. I'll pitch a tent about anywhere, if it's going to be good times. Considering where I've camped in Utah (side of the road, side of a river, swarm of mosquitos), I'd have to call camping at Coachella the best place to camp for this particular weekend. People you know you like, as they're there for the same reasons you are, surrounding you wherever you go. Can't say I won't be getting a room one of these upcoming years... but I'll definitely be thinking about camping while I'm chilling in my room! Palm Springs isn't going anywhere! Thursday night for campers in 2011 is a once in a lifetime thing. Your choice =)

    You are more than ready for the upcoming weekend.

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
