Coachella 2010

by | Apr 21, 2010

Just got back from Coachella yesterday. It was an amazing festival. I am totally exhausted and wish I could stay home and sleep the rest of the week, but back to work I go. My friend Kristen and I made the trip this year with a quick stop over in Arizona for a couple of warm up shows and some great food. We also met up with some former Albuquerque folks along the way. Had sushi with Chuck Hyde in Arizona and got to hang out with Joel Bryant at Coachella. Overall this was one of the best vacations I have ever taken… good friends, good food and good music. What else could you ask for?

Here is a quick overview of the acts we I saw on the trip. I may have missed one or two, but I think this is fairly accurate. If my lazy ass can get motivated I will give a more detailed account of some of the acts we saw.
