HAELOS dedicated a song to Prince.
The Dead Ships played a song about loss in his honor.
It was also nice of LDC Soundsystem to cover a Bowie tune (Heroes).
There are only two of us, and this is what I'm bringing.
Anyone up for a Thursday night bottle/can share in the campground?
About 80% done beer shopping.
If he's booked at Coachella it is. If not, good luck.
Any moment now.
Only about 89,999 of us.
Because they can take down camera drones.
Last year there were dressers in the Safaris tents.
Why can't you brush your teeth without paste? It doesn't work as well, but it's better than nothing.
As you can see by my sig, I've been alternating weekends. I do it based on my schedule with my kids.
Try the ap, Untappd.
Last year, weekend one, I met:
Charles Bradley, and held his costumes as he struggled to scan his wrist band.
Shepard Fairey at Interpol where he gave me a sticker he created with the band.
Yuma is the only tent that doesn't have special guest access, unless I missed it.
How about adding some religious named bands to Coachella:
Jesus and Mary Chain
Diet of Worms
Black Sabbath is on their fairwell tour.
Rob Halford is back with...
You also get access to the artist compound, which is where the coolers of water are, never seen anything but water in them. I've also never gotten locked out of one of the guest areas, but I've...
Band of Skulls - new album in May.
It's difficult to reply to this thread without being offensive.
Okay, I would love to see more Cali beer that isn't distributed, or distributed widely out of the state, such as:
Russian River - Pliney, Blind Pig, and any BA sour.
AleSmith - Speedway Stout on...
It is my understanding that a 2012 Weekend 2 Safari guest jumped on stage with a band, making an ass out of himself, and hence the policy change for next year.
Other than a few great photos of the...
Thanks, but that's in the wrong direction.
This must be a fairly new rule. In 2012, I remember there was a Canadian family in Safari with 2 minor children. The older of the two partied pretty hard most of the time. His parents didn't...
I'm driving in from AZ, and would like to aquire a few great CA beers that aren't distibuted in my home state, like Russian River, before I drive home.
Over the last four Coachellas, I've never run into a celebrity in any "VIP" area, so I can't imagine it's too common to do so.
I, generally, agree that VIP passes add very little value to the...
The most I've ever seen at Coachella is 39 sets, plus a few songs here and there. I couldn't walk very well afterwards. I usually limit myself to 30ish sets now.
Not since ZIAs pulled out two years ago.
Are there any decent bottle shops in and around Indio?
I would like to make a stop and pick up all the great CA brews that aren't distributed to AZ on my way home.
Would love to see Brian Eno perform at Coachella.
Huss Brewing is now canning the Koffee Kolsch. It's a great beer. My pub was the first to have this on tap outside their brewery, and we advised them to make this one of their...
In 2010, my neighbors in car camping camped without a car. They were from New Jersey, and their car broke down in New Mexico. They sold it and then bought bus tix, and took averything they could...
My biggest gap has been about 23 years for Echo and the Bunnymen.
Almost a year now. We are winning awards from our local paper, and have been recognized nationally by USA Today, Zagats, Yelp, and Bar & Night Club Magazine.
It's a tough business, but...
Leans more Country than AltC for me, so it's a pass.
First Hip Hop act I've liked in years.
I own a craft beer bar, and we just started brewing our own beer. No plans to bottle or can, so may have to sneak in a growler or two.
So ~25 of ~150 artists represented. no thx.
I didn't know you were into rednecks.
Is it a coincidence that there is a Staple on each day of day of Coachella this year. Last year it was SaintChella for me with all the acts with "Saint"" or "St." in their name. This year it's:
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
The one year I went by myself, 2013, I caught 39 sets. I could barely move Monday morning; my left hip socket was so inflamed. Had to go to the doctor on Tuesday. Now if you see a big, old guy...
There are always changes, some big, mostly small. Who is watching for them?
On which side of the festival grounds?
....into your mouth.
In 2010 I passed on seeing LDC for Fever Ray. Fever Ray was one of the best sets I've ever seen at Coachella, so I have no regrets, but I'm not going to miss them this year.
Coachella does recycle art, but not usually on subsequest years. Just like music artists don't usually appear on subsequent years.
Thanks for the scalper offers, but at this time face value only.
I am serious.
Worth a shot.
