    I do that too but it might be a few weeks cause I want to experience full pleasure of the band live...

    I have friends that totally play that shit out and wanna hear it rolling up to the show and it kills me everytime..."I'll meet you there I got something else I wanna listen too in the car"

    I listen to the band I'm about to see over and over to learn the words so I can impress them by how I know the song they're singing

    My ritual is, if they have them, buying a shirt with tour dates on the back.
    It not only shows you are a fan of the band, but it shows you were there! Its cold hard proof. Most of the time, I like the shirt without tour dates better, but I always choose the shirt with the tour dates. Its just my thing.
    I am probably gonna be spending around $200-300 on shirts at Coachella this yeah haha.

    Tailgate, crank up Tina Turner~ Simply the Best on repeat of course, toss around the pigskin and insult anyone that doesnt share my love for the home team by calling them "fucking fags" and then pull off some wicked kegs stands.

    Day 1

    Challenge myself to much an 1/8th of fungus with a bag of chili-cheese fritos during the walk from the car to the entrance. Oh, and chugging as many beers as I can carry. As long as it all stays down it'll be a good day.

    Day 2

    Hydration at the hotel, then repeat the beer chug challenge from car to entrance. Switch to rolls for the eve and try to find cid.

    Day 3

    Extra double hydration, then repeat the fungus and beer chug challenge. Attempt to taper consumption of intoxicants throughout the day so work on Monday is possible.

    it is silly, but i too feel superior if i can reel the words off with ease. although all it really means is that i have too much free time.

    You ARE superior if you know the words to the songs. I remember staying afterwards at a Snow Patrol show to get autographs, and when the hot guitarist told me he saw me in the audience singing the words to all the songs, I just melted. *sigh*

    I usually make some Coachella mixes for the four-hour drive back to Coachella the night before the weekend. The day-of, it's just about hydrating and putting on sun-screen.

    I methodically and repeatedly go through my purse/bag/backpack to make sure I've got everything I need...tix, money, id, chapstick, gum, etc. I repeat this every 10 minutes right up until we walk out the door (or tent). Then I freak out in the hotel hallway (or camping field) and have to recheck and make sure I brought whatever item it is I'm certain I left behind.

    best to be thorough. once i forgot my ID on our way to a 21+ show where we had parked literally a mile from the venue. we got all the way to the door when i realized i'd forgotten it. we had to go back of course.. my boyfriend was so mad at me!

    This thread reminds me that I need to start forming a coachella checklist.

    i actually made a checklist about 3 weeks ago. i've lost it since then, but that's ok because it will give me something to do when i'm awake at 2 am and my ocd needs soothing.

    I normally print my tickets, print a map of how to get there and print a map on how to get home, and print a list of phone numbers and addresses of recommended bars, restaurants and museums. And of course I take them on my carry-on, lest my luggage get lost in the shuffle.

    ha ha...I am the same way about making lists. I joke to my friends that I make lists of the lists that need to be made, but that's about how bad it really is.

    That reminds me I need to print out directions for all our places too. And figure out what the heck is acceptable to fly with these days. I haven't flown since last year's Coachella.

    there's something so satisfying in making a list. although i panic when i leave something off the list, and end up revising about a million times.

    I always make myself to-do lists. My friends make fun of me, but they help me focus.
