    Default they're really letting go...

    is it just me but has the number of Coachella bands playing in LA within a week increased significantly? taken from the Filter LA newsletter, I found all of the following Coachella artists playing within a week of the event:

    4/25 The Lemonheads @ El Rey
    4/26 Tapes 'n Tapes, The Harlem Shakes @ Spaceland
    4/26 The Jesus and Mary Chain @ The Glass House
    4/26 !!! @ Amoeba Music Hollywood
    4/27 Crowded House @ The Glass House
    4/29 Coco Rosie, Busdriver @ El Rey
    4/29 Travis @ The Fonda
    4/30 The Kooks @ Slim's
    4/30 Cornelius @ El Rey
    4/30 Andrew Bird @ Amoeba Music (Hollywood)
    5/1 Rufus Wainwright @ El Rey
    5/2 The Teddybears @ El Rey


    ok, so two of them are amoeba shows, but still. I don't remember it being like this at all. was I just oblivious to this in past years?

    well with the ticket sales taken care of well in advance, there is no worries with the bands playing around the coachella dates.

    I had actually wondered that. Are the bands asked to hold up on performing locally within a certain number of days of the show and were they given a release from that provision due to the fact that Coachella has sold out this year (ticketwise)?

    8 of those shows are at GV controlled venues, go figure. You are missing plenty of other ones if you count SD,SF AND Vegas.

    I dig this...I'm seeing DJ Shadow, VNV Nation, and Arcade Fire all in LA so I don't have to worry about conflicts at Coachella much

    That's actually a rule for most venues just in general. If a band has a show at a good-size venue, they usually can't promote any other shows in that city anywhere from a week to a month before and after the venue's show.

    that's not unusual though. denver is far far away. :-)

    again, not unusual. I have noticed that every year, I think those cities are outside the radius that bands are restricted to.

    down in the south bronx
    down home
    saw you walking down the street again
    saw you looking sweet again

    i saw you coming through
    i turned my head away from you
    why do you come here
    why do you come around
    why'd you go home
    why'd you head on home to rockaway?

    Faithless has a show in SF on Monday night as well.

    That's probably going to be a much better show than their Coachella performance.

    Too bad I'm not a jetsetter.
