Alas, I don't have the time or the funds to see SXSW, Coachella, and Bonnaroo. For the live music writers who do have the time and do this for a living, I envy you. To determine which festival, if any, I should see, I've posted the lineups and tallied up which bands I want to see.

    too many to list here

  • Considering my limited time and funds, and the likelihood that I will be in the L.A. area at the end of April (against my will), I am probably gonna get me some Coachella tix. I just wish there were some bigger names so my non-indie friends would wanna join me for the trip. Man, I was hoping against hope for Smashing Pumpkins and My Bloody Valentine reunions. *sigh*
