    It sounds like he is using this as a way to get appointed to the committee that reviews GV's permit applications. The likely scenario is that the mayor appoints Torres which will give him some power to twist GV's arm into giving more to Indio, but not as much as the proposed tax. They'll reach a compromise, and either we will pay a few dollars more in the ticket price or GV will cut corners to make up the difference.

    here we go again......

    UPDATE 2: Goldenvoice has contacted us to inform us that the comment left claiming factual errors and attributed to Paul T of Goldenvoice was not actually Paul T. Real funny guys

    Indio councilman drops ticket tax plan to avoid losing Coachella and Stagecoach

    4:05 PM, Jul. 5, 2012


    Indio Councilman Sam Torres has decided to drop his pursuit of a controversial ticket tax that had pinned him against his fellow council members and caused Goldenvoice to potentially move the internationally renowned Coachella festival.

    “The potential for the music festivals to move out of the city exists, and if this should occur it would negatively impact the region; I cannot in good conscience allow this to happen no matter how dire the city’s circumstances,” said Torres.

    Now the question is, does it really matter?

    11/10 - The Black Keys @ US Airways Center (Phoenix, AZ)
    4/10/15 - 4/12/15 - Coachella

    Torres folds. Goldenvoice declines to show its hand.

    i dont think so.... by putting their foot down now it helps put things in perspective for any members of whatever city council hosts the event in the future. More than likely moving to an area where a long term deal can be squared away and none of this bullshit has to take place.

    NBC LA News at 5pm just ran a segment about all this. Coachella soon could be a free agent.

    Though rumor has it that the Lakers are gonna buy the festival then trade it to Orlando along with Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard.

    I wonder if that land deal will go through.
    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.

    I'm sure they will continue looking into options for the future and remain open to a move if the perfect opportunity arises.
