According to the lady herself, Magda will NOT be playing Coachella in 2011 (unless GV asks her within the next 3 weeks or so/she subsequently becomes a late add).
She will however, be at SXSW if you care.
Or at least, if you do, don't go hoping for great experiences in terms of dance music. Granted things may have changed over the last year (I went in 2009). My two biggest problems with it:
1 - No real good organization as to a complete picture of what's going on. Maybe I've been spoiled by "The List" for WMC every year, but there was nothing remotely comprehensive to be found on line.
2 - Because it's historically been more a showcase for bands, DJ sets tend to be way too short. Seriously, 45 minutes was about the average.
If you're going for other forms of music it could be cool. There's definitely some neat stuff that went down while I was there. But I just found it quite disappointing from a dance music perspective.
That said, Austin's a pretty neat place and SXSW is pretty cheap to do. There's a lot of great food to be found there and in surrounding areas. And I'd bet the Film and tech portions of SXSW would be cool to check out. The Film portion in particular.
Magda sounds like the Twelves, nobody's ever heard of them but you're cool if you have, and if you haven't ... well then PLUR nonetheless!
Crazy, I was thinking to myself, "I bet Tim doesn't know who Magda is and is going to get offended somehow by the mention of her name and think that he is being personally insulted" when I posted that.
But then why would anyone have heard of the duo that put together easily the best EM of 09? Either way, show up when they play at Coachella and you'll have a good time.
(side note: I get feisty when drunk)
I ran into Green Velvet after his set last night at The Rave in Milwaukee. He was extremely nice and gracious and I asked if he would be playing Coachella this year and after a thoughtful pause and a smile he said something along the lines of "You never know...".
Dwight Yoakam again?
May?Time to get in line (virtually). It seems Dwight Yoakam is one of the few country dudes every country-hating indie rock dude would pay good money to see gyrate his hips in tight, tight jeans, and so, country-hating indie rock dudes, here's your chance.
Tickets for Yoakam's Friday February 11 show at Mystic Lake Casino (8:00, $39/52) go on sale tomorrow at 10AM. If you're into guitars, I'd say at least $30 of that ticket price is worth seeing the Don Rich to Dwight's Buck Owens, guitarist and former Maverick Eddie Perez. It's been a few years since Yoakam's hit a casino closer than a couple hours from the city, so the quick trip to Mystic to see him late this winter will be well worth the drive. Unless, of course, you're headed to Coachella this spring, where he'll be playing in May. But who the hell's goin' to Coachella? See him in the casino - you'll be glad you did.
He's playing a Casino in Coachella in May. The writer of that article is confused.
