>why coachella ’11 will be wonderful…



The list of people performing at Coachella 2011 came out this week.  It’s interesting to me that they would put some bands in bigger letters than others when some of the better bands are actually the guys in point 4 font on the poster.  Kings of Leon?  Really?  They had one good year…  Don’t waste your time listening to “Use Somebody” when you could be listening to some other awesome bands.

And Kanye… I mean, his performances shouldn’t come as any surprise to anyone.  Plus, he will sing all of his new stuff, but none of it is really that good (in my opinion).

I went through the poster and strategically pulled out who (if you are going) should not miss!

If I could, I would LOVE to see any of the artists below live.  I’ve included their music videos (and a playlist at the bottom!) so you can see what kind of performers they actually are:
