The lineup for the 2010 Coachella show is out. And some strange headliners. Jay-z the first night…okay, I can see it. Muse the 2nd night…yeah, I guess…may be too commercial for the show…but okay. Gorillaz the 3rd night. Gorillaz? Headliner? Aren’t they just a novelty act? Considering you have Thom Yorke (a previous headliner) and the Pavement reunion on the same night…you went with Gorillaz as the headliner…okay…
These aren’t necessarily the best bands playing at the show. These aren’t the bands who might put on the best performances. And these aren’t even the bands that I think everyone else would be excited about seeing. These are the bands that I, personally, am excited to see at the show. Some big reunions (Pavement, FNM, PIL, and SDRE)…and some of 2009’s breakout sensations (Phoenix, the XX, Grizzly Bear). Should be an awesome show…too bad I can’t go.
