Coachella 2011 has passed and it was amazing…or at least that’s what i’ve been told. You see, while all my friends and the music outlets I pay attention to were enjoying the abundant musical offerings, while melting in the desert, they were also constantly updating their facebook, twitters, blogs, etc. and letting everybody else know how much fun they were having.
I really wanted to go this year and there were handful of bands that I was really looking forward to experiencing live — Animal Collective, Phantogram, Duck Sauce, Crystal Castles, The New Pornographers…just to name a few.
Now I can’t complain too much. The reason I was unable to attend Coachella was because I was in New Orleans for work, but it still stung being constantly reminded of the good times and tunes I was missing out on. So, I decided to dedicate this weeks mixtape to the bands I wanted to see most at Coachella 2011.
(Disclaimer: I’m only including bands/artists I have never seen live, hence the absence of Arcade Fire and others)
