    With Superchunk, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Arcade Fire all at Coachella (along with Wye Oak and I'm sure others I am missing), Coachella is already close to being a Merge fest.

    Also, this festival is going to be sweet and if it wasn't on the second week of a new job for me I would totally go.
