My Coachoosings

In a matter of minutes I'll be out the door on my way to the desert, getting a head start on what surely will be another epic weekend at Coachella. With the help of the official Coachella Coachooser, I've got a decent idea of how I'm going to navigate the landscape out there. I may need to clone myself a couple times or master the art of freezing time like Evie from Out Of This World, but there are no rules that say you have to take in a whole set...portion control is the key here. That being said, beer tents and weirdo art displays will do their best to distract me from my mission. Do not fall victim to their advances! Follow the music!

Here's how my Friday schedule stacks up, with !!! leading everything off, fresh off a super intimate show that the wife and I thoroughly enjoyed in Visalia last night.

Is there any way I'll come close to sticking to this itinerary? Not a chance. But, that's the beauty of this festival. You get pulled in so many surprising directions and pleasant discoveries are all around you. Hopefully when I get around to recapping the weekend, I'm not burnt to a crisp. Time to double check that I packed sun block...
