Coachella 2010 survival guide

As a (wo)man of my word I have returned to post my (music intensive) survival guide for this year’s Coachella Valley Music Festival. In an effort to get us all better prepared to melt in the desert heat, deal with our drug-addled brains, and try to fit in every band we want to see, I have included one track that I love from each act on the bill I would truly like to see. Maybe the desire to see these artists will trump the hardships.

I typically try to avoid music festivals because I would much rather indulge in the bands I adore in a smaller,  more climate-controlled venue. However, this year I have decided to throw caution to the wind and see what these 3 days of excess and debauchery will be like. (Thankfully I let Radiohead break my music festival cherry at Outside Lands about 2 years ago. mmm Thom Yorke.)

So without further ado, feel free to download and fall in love with my small offering to the musical gods and their worshipers aplenty.
