Coachella Highlights 2013: The Postal Service

Rarely does a band side project gather such a loyal following that their only album gets a 10-year anniversary celebration in conjunction with a reunion tour of said side project. Yet such is the case with The Postal Service, the electro-pop side project of Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard and producer Jimmy Tamborello (of Dntel and Headset), and their celebrated platinum-selling 2003 album Give Up. Due to the […]

Coachella Highlights 2013: The Lumineers

Coachella 2013 is now behind us, but one of the great things about this festival is their dedication to video coverage of so many of their shows. Dedicated music fans who were unable to attend Coachella were still able to stream many of the shows live over the festival weekends, and even after the fact, some of the more magical moments from the festival are still available on the festival […]

Coachella 2013 Bands to Watch For: Kurt Vile

With the first weekend of Coachella 2013 now just a week off, we have at least one more tip for you: if you’re heading to Indio either next weekend or the weekend after, you should try to catch Kurt Vile. Hailing from Philadelphia, Vile has built a solid fan following and earned accolades from many a critic for his laid-back vocal style and his indie roots-rock vibe. And with his […]

Coachella 2013 Bands To Watch For: Japandroids

With Coachella 2013 less than a month away, anticipation for the two-weekend music festival in Indio, CA is certainly ramping up. If you’re planning to attend, here’s another band worth looking at: Japandroids. The name of this band is a bit deceiving, if not confusing. They are neither from Japan, nor are they droids. Hell, they don’t even sound anime. They are, in fact, a garage-rock duo from Vancouver, BC […]

Coachella 2013 Bands to Watch For: The Colourist

Here’s another hidden gem to check out if you’re planning to be at Coachella this year. The Colourist is an indie-pop/dance act that has been building a following in the O.C. for the past couple of years, plugging away at the Los Angeles live show circuit. They’ve got a solid, danceable sound, punctuated by a female drummer/vocalist named Maya Tuttle who can keep up easily with both roles (as you’ll […]

Coachella 2013 Bands to Watch For: Little Green Cars

As Coachella 2013 approaches (April 12-14 and April 19-21 in Indio, California), we thought it would be a good idea to profile some of the acts slated to perform on one or both weekends—and not just the bands everyone knows, but some of the up-and-comers that you might miss otherwise. Little Green Cars definitely makes that list. A couple of important things strike me about this Dublin-based folk/rock act. First: […]

2013 Festival Line-Ups Begin To Take Shape

The rumours about which acts are appearing where begin to circulate virtually the minute the festival season is over, but while the summer still seems light years away, many of the big-name festivals have already started to announce their line-ups for 2013. Widely touted to headline America’s most hipster-friendly festival Coachella this year, Daft Punk were notably absent from the Californian event’s official roster of confirmed artists. But there are […]

Coachella 2013 Tickets Go On Sale January 29

Two weekends. Multiple stages. Hundreds of bands. Generally nice desert weather. If you’re a music festival junkie, you’re not going to do much better than Coachella, held each spring in Indio, California. This year’s two-weekend event promises something for nearly every musical taste (although if you were planning to see The Rolling Stones there, you’ll be disappointed. That was just a rumor). If you are planning to attend for one […]

Music News Week in Review: April 21 Edition

It’s been a busy week in music news, both good and bad. While today is Record Store Day (so you should go and buy some), the music industry is also haunted this weekend by the passing of legends Dick Clark and Levon Helm. Beyond those major headlines, here are a few additional tidbits you might have overlooked.   FACEBOOK ADDS “LISTEN” BUTTON This could be an added bonus for both […]

Coachella’s Hip-Hop Highlights (or, the ghost of Tupac)

As attested by the ocean of pasty, sunburnt bodies gathered yearly in the Coachella Valley, the Coachella Music and Arts Festival at best tends to represent a casual sampling of hip-hop’s current trendsetters. While the drugs, young bodies and stifling heat are still healthy inducements to attend, a dedicated hip-hop head might find the musical offerings wanting. If the hip-hop side of things is all you’re interested in, then fear […]

Coachella will be live streaming shows on YouTube all this weekend, April 13-15. Just go to their YouTube channel and get on board. For those who have been living under a rock, Coachella is one of the nation’s […]
