Coachella 2009: A Playlist

The Coachella music festival begins today in Indio, CA, and sadly, I'm missing out on it this year. But the lineup is so great I figured I'd put together a lil playlist with music by some of my favorite musicians who are heading down to Indio, perhaps right as we speak (or type).

I'm really pleased with this playlist: a little Yeah Yeah Yeahs ("Cheated Hearts"), some Franz Ferdinand ("Lucid Dreams"), and Beirut ("Scenic World"), along with tunes by the more seasoned folks like Leonard Cohen ("Everybody Knows"), The Cure ("Close to Me") and, of course, Paul McCartney ("Maybe I'm Amazed"). There isn't a song for every act at the festival, but it's a meaty list nonetheless. Want to check it out? It's pretty darn good, if I may toot my little horn. Just

(Also, I might capture Paul Weller and get a time machine and make him young again and make him fall in love with me. That would be the other draw.)

MBV was the big reason I wanted to go to Coachella, but then I thought about being out in the sun and decided that I only want to see that band in a dark club. Shoegaze isn't sunny, at least not to me. :)
