I just got my ticket for Fri & Sat today. How exciting! Wow, a little bogged down trying to get acquainted with a lot of bands who have new albums or some I haven't heard of before...ever... My thoughts so far for Friday:
Bjork - I'm not a HUGE fan but still feel the experience will be good
Silversun Pickups - really like them
Peaches - fun, I'd like to narrow down my playlist for her, a lot to weed thru
Interpol - need to hear more, only have a few songs on my ipod
Saturday is much easier. Top picks so far are LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon, Regina Spektor. Others: PB&J, Hot Chip, Decemberists, the Frames. Need to check out MSTRKRFT based on what I have read on this board. Didn't immediately warm up to Jack's Mannequin, Blonde Redhead, Fountains of Wayne, Sparklehorse, Travis, among a few others
I'm going to work on my ipod tomorrow and try to get as much play time in before Coachella as possible. Actually knowing the music really enhances the experience - derr...
If you have any strong feelings about bands, albums, songs I should add to my ipod tomorrow, please respond and let me know why. I already have on my list to add LCD and Arcade Fire's new ones. Also, need to add MSTRKFT.
If you don't agree with my music taste, that's OK. If we all liked the same music, it would be a very boring world, wouldn't it?
