Coachella lineup 2017: Snap Judgement

It’s official, Coachella is now for the under 30s.  No more band reunions. Only a small nod of acknowledgement to bands that are played on Alternative Rock radio.  I’m guessing Chance The Rapper or Frank Ocean were not available or else Radiohead would not be headlining.  The band does not belong on this bill and neither […]

Substitute Singers

It was officially announced this past weekend that Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose would join AC/DC on their “Rock or Bust” tour, taking the place of Brian Johnson, who just retired due to hearing issues. It was also announced that “Oldchella” would be taking over the Polo Grounds in Coachella Valley with The Rolling […]

Small Font Coachella bands

Good news:  Coachella called and they want you to play their festival. Bad news: You’re getting the smallest font on the Coachella bill.  This means you’ll be playing when most of the Coachella faithful are either stuck in traffic if it’s the first day or if it’s Saturday or Sunday, they are fighting a terrible […]

Localchella 2016

The kids may like the all you can eat platter that is Coachella but I prefer the a la carte menu that is Localchella.  Thanks to the festival practically holding artists captive for two weekends, bands you might be interested in are playing around the So Cal area in smaller, more intimate indoor venues. The […]

Coachella lineup 2016

This is not your father’s Coachella.  They finally did it and kicked out the 40+ age group that attends these shows.   I looked on Facebook and my entire feed (i.e. old people)  was utter disappointment.  And honestly this is the way it should be.  I was in Starbucks today and the high school kids were […]

2016 Predictions

Let’s stare into the crystal ball and see what might happen in 2016. Coachella – It’s pretty much confirmed that Guns ‘n Roses and LCD Soundsystem will headline.  I’m going to guess that Axl will go on late, they’ll cut the cord and he’ll throw a tantrum and refuse to play the second weekend. Meanwhile, […]

AC/DC 1981

For those about to rock at Coachella, here’s a reminder that AC/DC should be saluted.  They are still Rock Gods among us mere mortals.  Here is a vintage concert from Landover, MD 1981 of AC/DC on their For Those About To Rock tour.  If anything watch just the first five minutes as this almost spills into […]

What to expect in 2015

One of the reasons to love pop music is its unpredictability.  You might know of new releases and new concert tours but you never know which new release will meet those expectations (Taylor Swift) and which will end with a thud  (U2).  The good news is it’s the new year and both Taylor and U2 […]

It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World

Apparently James Brown is still right when it comes to music.  As the Los Angeles Times  pointed out 80% of the artists that performed at Coachella were males.   The men might have the numbers but it’s the woman that are currently dominating. It seems that the most talked about music this past weekend were the […]
