My Coachella 2013 Pass Is Here!

by | Mar 27, 2013

Yesterday, I arrived home to find a USPS missed delivery notice in my mailbox.  The scribble indicating who it was from was illegible and I couldn’t think of anything I was having delivered that would need a signature. I spent much of the night trying to figure out what it could be.

This morning I drove out to the hard to find “Airport” Post Office to pick up my package. Once I had it in hand I avoided the urge to rip it open and take a look. Instead I headed to the office, stopped and got some coffee, and then settled down at my desk to take a a look.

What did it contain? My Coachella 2013 pass!!!!

I am super excited for Coachella this year.  Not only do I get to see the Stone Roses, who I have waited 20+years to see, but also overall I think the lineup is amazing. Each year I go through the lineup and mark off the bands I want to see and then listen to all the bands I am not very familiar with.  This year the list of “Yes” bands was huge on my first pass.

Some of the sets I am looking forward to include the following.


Alt-J, Band of Horses, blur, FOALS, Japandroids, Johnny Marr, Of Monsters and Men, Passion Pit, and The Stone Roses.


Franz Ferdinand, Hot Chip, New Order, Phoenix, Spiritualized, The Postal Service, The Wombats, The xx, and Two Door Cinema Club, Yeasayer


DIIV, Grimes, OMD, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Social Distortion, Tanlines, The Airborne Toxic Event, The Lumineers, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs

There are a bunch of others on my list to see, but I know I won’t be able to see everything.  Some of those above may even have conflicts and I will have to make some decisions.

I hope it isn’t a zillion degrees this year!
