Coachella Documentary is Coming Out This Month

From Billboard.com…

The documentary Coachella, which chronicles the first six years of the beloved Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, will descend on 115 theaters in 55 U.S. markets on Jan. 24 via Big Screen Concerts. The film, which was directed by Drew Thomas and produced by event promoter Goldenvoice, will also be premiered Jan. 19 in Los Angeles and Jan. 23 in New York.

Where’s my Chicago premier? I always wondered why our film market doesn’t really stand up with the other two cities mentioned, but whatever. I mean, I don’t care that much, I guess…

The documentary has a wide span of artist coverage but they obviously cover the heavy hitters the most…

…stretching back to Morrissey at the inaugural 1999 show up through a 2005 clip of the Arcade Fire. In between is footage of such acts as Bjork, Radiohead, the Pixies, the White Stripes, the Chemical Brothers, Oasis, the Flaming Lips, Iggy & the Stooges, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kool Keith and Beck, among many others.

It’s worth watching for Bjork and the White Stripes alone. You can check the list of theaters here.
