OK, first: I am guest-DJing tonight on UCLARadio.com at 10 p.m. Pacific time and spinning my top 10 songs of the year so far, so check it out.
If there were no crowds, this would be my schedule for Day 2 of Coachella with some minor overlap:
The Octopus Project
The Dears (or Murs, it’ll be a gametime decision)
James Blunt (just for lolz)
The Magic Numbers (while wishing I was at Ted Leo)
Considering that this is about as plausible as the premise of tonight’s The O.C., here are the bands I’ll be at no matter what:
The Dears – “No Cities Left”: mp3 (song is a dead ringer for “Paranoid Android”)
The Magic Numbers – “Love Me Like You”: mp3
Wolf Parade – “I’ll Believe In Anything”: mp3
Sleater-Kinney – “Entertain”: mp3
Art Brut – “Emily Kane”: mp3
And probably Mogwai, Seu Jorge and part of Metric. I’m skipping all the headliners this year. Besides, imagine how many Pitchfork writers will be at Art Brut! Makes me wish CMG had t-shirts.
Also, I’m skipping TV On The Radio and My Morning Jacket to try and get backstage with Kanye on Saturday. This is probably a terrible idea.
