Coachella 2008

Have you seen the lineup for this year's Coachella Festival? I'm stoked!



You'll find more unofficial lineups here and here.

1/23 UPDATE: The 2008 Coachella lineup is now official, and no it doesn't include Mark Mark or Paula Abdul. It does include a lot of bands I hope will play ACL or Bonnaroo this year, especially The Verve, Portishead, Love & Rockets, My Morning Jacket and Spiritualized. Why am I hoping that these bands will play other festivals? I've been to Coachella three times -- 2001, 2004, 2005 -- but haven't seriously considered going back. Even if the tickets weren't getting more and more expensive, why spend a three-day weekend in the desert heat when you can see the same bands in Manchester, TN or Austin?

A few of these bands I've seen and they don't deserve to be on this poster, including: SEAL, Midnight Oil, Terence Trent D'Arby and Toad the Wet Sprocket. Especially Midnight Oil and Terence Trent, nee Sananda Maitreya -- both kick ass in a live setting.

I've also seen The Fray, Maroon 5 and the Proclaimers in concert, and they all deserve to be in a tent with Paula Abdul and MC Scat Cat.
