Posted in POSTS with tags , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by cuzinmank

The lineup is finally here and it is as big as I promised! Most if not all the names I have been throwing at you from the sources from the internet (especially Consequence of Sound) have indeed become a reality and am personally very happy with the results of the initial lineup. Some might not be too thrilled, even with some of the amazing bands that are billed. Don’t worry kids as I’ve told you all many times, these Coachella promoters love to give us something to chew on, and then over the course of the months leading up to the actual event they add bands. A lot of smaller bands and midlevel acts to fill in the bill, but sometimes you will get a name that will change it all causing the world to go into a frenzy! That’s the beauty of Coachella. Enough talk here it is:

I will be posting rumors, band additions, my finds and my recommendations for this years festival as move we forward to the festival. Some exciting months ahead of us with more band adds, more rumors and whole lot of new music to discover! Check back for updates and let the countdown begin!

The Lineup Is Coming, The End Is Near!

Posted in POSTS with tags , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by cuzinmank

So here we are coming ever closer to the big announcement that will be our fate as Coachella’s lineup shall be announced! Most of us are sitting around trying not to look at the time and are clicking and refreshing various sites hoping for the first sign of a leak or big announcement. The rumors have been flying high as we come near reality. Consequence of Sound mentions Muse to be a lock for Friday, Jay-Z apparently is Saturday, and The Gorillaz to be closing out Sunday. Jay-Z might not be everyones favorite brew, but Coachella will definitly be hooking it up with someone amazing in the other tents, especially the Sahara or “Dance Tent” as it’s often referred to by, with names like LCD Soundsystem, Pretty Lights, and now rumors surfacing of Underworld finally making a long awaited reappearance since 2003. There will be plenty to do this year friends as tons of additional rumors regarding bands like Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Orbital, Porcupine Tree, Avett Brothers, Devo, Spoon, Passion Pit, Deerhunter, Yeasayer , The XX, Miike Snow, The Dirty Projectors, The Beastie Boys, The Dead Weather, Cornelius, Tiesto, and even some more! Wow I’m not sure which of all those will materialize to become a reality, but damn this year looks like it’s gonna be fun as hell! I can’t wait to see the lineup and I know my eyes wont be able to read it fast enough! I’ll try my best not to shit myself but its cool I got a change of pants. As always, KROQ promises to announce the lineup sometime tomorrow morning but we all hope once the clock strikes midnight our prize will be delivered. I sure hope so because I hate finding out the lineup while I’m working, which is where I’ll be tomorrow morning. This is it friends, the lineup is coming! Good Luck!

This Year’s Destiny Served Tuesday, Coachella Lineup 2010!

I might be late in conveying my late night/early mornings findings, but either way here it is via our friends at Consequence of Sound:

Coachella 2010 lineup due out Tuesday; here’s what we know!

When you log onto your computer Tuesday morning, following a weekend of rest and relaxation, the 2010 lineup for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will be available for your viewing pleasure –barring any last minute problems! Of course, having just read that, you’ll probably now dedicate your entire weekend to hitting the refresh button. That’s ok, because we will be too.

Anyhow, we have spent the last few days emailing and calling anyone who may know anything, and thought we’d share the results with you ahead of the big announcement. Here’s what we know:

As mentioned, the lineup will be officially announced Tuesday morning on KROQ radio in Los Angeles. Based on past experience, we can assume the lineup will be unveiled, via Coachella.com or the Los Angeles Times, sometime around 12:00am PST. So, expect no sleep.

As best we can tell, the lineup should look something like this: Muse will headline Friday, while the Gorillaz will debut its latest album, Plastic Beach, by closing out the festival on Sunday. Saturday remains a bit unclear and, according to several folks with knowledge of the festival, could play out in one of two ways: A “surprise” headliner or Jay-Z, who would apparently be accompanied by Kanye West and Alicia Keys. At this moment, it is unknown who that “surprise” headliner may be or what factor will determine the two options.

Others names we expect to appear on the lineup include the Beastie Boys, Faith No More, Wilco, LCD Soundsystem, Phoenix, Spoon, Yeasayer, Hot Chip, Devo, The Dead Weather, Passion Pit, She & Him, The Big Pink, and The xx.

An appearance by Pavement, which at one point appeared to be a given before rumors surfaced the band would not be playing, still remains a possibility. According to a person familiar with the band’s plans, “don’t count them out.”

A separate source has told us that Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is set to appear at Indio for a solo performance, however, we have been unable to confirm this.

We’ll of course continue working throughout the weekend and will let you know as soon as we hear more. Be sure to check out our Coachella Outlook page for all the latest lineup news and rumors….

Shit your pants a little? I did! Can we believe this breaking news or will this lead us to follow a dead trail like last year? Last year seemed to have hit a bump when Paul had to assure us everything was fine but the lineup would be delayed. I feel confident though and believe we shall have our initial lineup this Tuesday! Might I also add with all the mentioned names on the “expected” list I am very happy and excited to see them! Stay tuned folks for my reaction and responses as soon as it is humanly possible following the unvealing!

For Your Amusement Only Please

Before you say anything, to the junkies of  the Coachella world, I am well aware of this poster being shown and posted sometime last week, and more importantly totally fake. Having said that can we please just use this for some fun amusement and a little humor. The fever is strong so even a ridiculous mess like this is worth viewing.

Yeah okay you can throw up now and get angry about why I would even show such poop, but rest easy as I assure you this is just for shits and giggles. If Michael wasn’t gone I believe he would actually be a strong candidate for a headliner. I remember stating that the year Prince played. Coachella had Madonna and Prince so who else would be left to headline on that grand of scale besides the solo gloved moonwalker himself. Sorry superhero fans, don’t see any possiblities of the X-Men of Transformers holding any credibility. They were offered more then the Smiths but they still turned ’em down. Keep checking for more updates!

Coachella 2010 FAKE? Poster Part 1

Posted in POSTS with tags , , , , on November 13, 2009 by cuzinmank

Hello boys and girls its time to show you the first Coachella 2010 FAKE? Poster/Lineup! If this this isn’t the first correct me if I’m wrong but its the first to me =). Either way I have to say I’m very excited about this poster as it has many exciting bands for me and bands that are actually possibilities! I know there are some overflows it seems like with too many ridiculously good bands! That could pose possible catastrophic conflictions that would ruin my life! I gotta say though over the years as much as I’ve panicked and lost sleep over scheduling conflictions when the big day comes Coachella always manages to keep the damages very minimal. It’s just always so dangerous to worry about where the big conflict will be? You make your priorities and pick your winner. Roll of the dice sometimes where you may have wished you did something different,but hey you learn and go next year! Anyways heres the poster! enjoy and maybe comment? Some interactions as I am a real person served to you in a digital format.

click it to make big!
