While I'm not sure if anybody really cares, I'm going to tell you all about how awesome my last week has been. Last Tuesday I took off for SoCal to visit a friend in Clairmont. Spent a day at Magic Mountain, home of X, the worlds most amazing roller coaster; spent the next night getting my party on; and the next day at Coachella, a huge 2-day music festival I caught half of. Radiohead was rumored to play there, but were a no-show unless they played under some obscure name in the smallest tent that I never heard of. I got to see at least part of South, The Mooney Suzuki, Idlewild, Ben Kweller, Gomez, The Rapture, Badly Drawn Boy, Kinky, Ladytron, N*E*R*D, The Hives, Groove Armada, Blur, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals, and The Beastie Boys. Absolutely incredible. I have to say that Ben Harper was the highlight of my day, but most of the other guys were pretty good too. Not too shabby, especially considering that they were $90 tickets we got for about $15. It's all about who you know. Anyway, for those of you who were curious, there you go.
My attempt to salvage this into a real thread, anybody ever been to any killer music festivals? Who headlined? What was the highlight of your experience?
