News Shorts from the Internet Ether | Coachella, Radiohead, and Pitchfork Fest
Planning on hitting the Coachella Music Festival this year and have faith that it’ll be another stellar line-up? Well, looks like they’ve already begun a $199 pre-sale for the three-day festival, which is slated for 4/27-4/29 and takes place in Indio, CA. (Apparently, you’ve gotta sign-in/register and use the password “ROXANNE.” Hmm, odd choice for a password. Is someone at Coachella messing with the fans, or do they know more about this rumored Police reunion than anyone else?)
Radiohead is back at work in the studio (apparently “rebuilt” after the massive wind storms of Europe); speaking of Radiohead, Rock Music Daily has some solid live Radiohead MP3s from 1997.
The next Wilco album has a name and a release date: Sky Blue Sky will be out May 15th (this, according to coverage of a recent Tweedy solo show. Sounds good to me Jeff, but more significant news might be: what’s going to be on that album?)
LCD Soundsystem may finally be adding some U.S. dates to that European schedule…they’ve got 2 nights at the Bowery in NYC (and the 1st night is already sold out?!?). Hopefully, they’ll bring their disco-punk madness nationwide.
and last but not least…
Still got some old gems on tape that just HAVE to be on your iPod? Well, bust out those old XLIIs and zip them onto your computer system with this thing.
