    I would be down with a location that had enough nearby accomodation options that the surge in demand over Coachella weekends wouldn't jack up the rates so astronomically. I would also be down with a location where there were more plentiful bottle refill stations so the lines weren't so long. And parking and road infastructure designed to accomodate thousand upon thousands of cars. But I have no idea where that location might be.

    She is probably alluding to the fact that there was a specific bike route this year and certain roads were closed to all traffic.

    Pot was probably alluding to something much more interesting than festival orienteering.

    I think its pretty clear at this point that Mr. Torres realizes he made a huge mistake. It's no longer a question of whether or not Coachella will leave Indio, but rather when.

    Nobody knows what will happen, but lets keep speculating regardless.

    Someone in the comments section of one of the Desert.com articles about Torres linked to a .pdf showing the list of Indio city officials who had received complimentary tickets to Coachella in 2012. You'll never guess who was at the top of the list, receiving 9 tickets (roughly $3000 worth, or more if VIP) and 3 VIP parking passes, which was more than any other city official.

    Sam Torres.

    I wonder if he has claimed those on his taxes?

    The wise move here is to continue the agreement with Indio, while continuing to develop an external site in Thermal.

    This way there's no deadline, no time frame, and things can be done correctly. Things tend to be done right when there aren't critical deadlines and ruptures in cashflow.

    The festival can continue in 2014, and 2015 at Empire. 2016 the site can be shifted to an upgraded field, with no curfews, noise limits, etc. etc.

    It's a win-win for everyone. Well, not Torres.

    ^^^ trouble w/ that is their current contract is only good through 2013. And then there will have to be more negotiations... It seems like the biggest issue here is developing a long term contract. So if Indio doesnt agree sometime soon, i see the move happening regardless.

    I wonder how all the people who attend Stagecoach feel about this. Did we forget about that little event that has sold out the past 2 years now in advance?

    I bet the Stagecoach crowd would be on-board for a move if it meant more hook-ups for their RVs.

    Fingers crossed that there will not be a tax proposal that will result in $8 tamales.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    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.

    It doesn't take much effort to simultaneously threaten Sam Torres while on the phone with the Black Keys' agent.

    because he is the only person talking to bands or looking for new talent? And David Bowie is already booked, do we need anything else?
