Coachella, the annual music festival in the desert kingdom of Indio, near Palm Springs and 250 miles from Las Vegas, announced its lineup for April 11-13 and April 18-20. As with last year and in 2012, the festival will offer identical lineups on two successive weekends in April.
The big news for Las Vegas - besides the fact that many residents of Our Town flock to the festival - is that a goodly number of the bands playing the gig in Indio also play Las Vegas. Our CityLife wish list includes, of course, The Replacements, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bryan Ferry, Blood Orange, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, and Motorhead. We can find room for you here.
