mainposter1Today Coachella organizers announced the lineup for the 2009 3 day concert.  Held at the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA the music and arts festival is scheduled for April 17 – 19th.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 9am with 3 day passes for $269.00 and single day ticakets for $99.00.  Plus if you want to camp on-site you’ll need to purchase as pass for there too.  Though I’ve heard you shouldn’t camp and just spend the money for a hotel room or house rental.  This year’s lineup is going to be head lined by….Amy Winehouse.  Let’s all hope she shows up and can actually perform.  Other acts who I’m exciting to see on the list include: Lykke Li, Paul McCartney, The Killers, The Ting Tings, Girl Talk, Crystal Method, TV on the Radio, Thievery Corporation, Groove Armada, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and more.

TV on the Radio

TV on the Radio

Over the weekend, I did head to San Francisco for the Treasure Island Music Festival.  I will be posting a complete review of the entire festival but for now…..this is all about one band which completely surprised me. 

To be honest, I was not a fan of this band before this past weekend.  I have many, many friends who love them and have given me all their released CD’s which I never listen to ever. To say I wasn’t really excited to see them would be an understatement.  Especially since they were third to last for the day and I had been standing for hours.

BUT, TV on the Radio surprised the hell out of me.  They were great and I can say this with only semi-knowing one of their songs.  For most people, watching a band and not being familiar with their music can make for a very long and boring set.  But TV had amazing energy and drew you into their songs, almost daring you not to pay attention to them.  Needless to say, I have been converted.  Today they are releasing their new album, Dear Science, which they played 3 songs from on Saturday.  All were great and I recommend you check them out.  If you have the chance to see them live; go!   It will be worth it.
