We have many fond memories from Coachellas past, but right now we're totally jealous of that Lollapalooza lineup. Sunday tickets are sold out. You'll either have to buy a two-day pass or take your chances in the secondary market.

Sunday 4/30
Tool (loads of pent up demand, but we haven’t thought about them in twelve years), Massive Attack (influential trip hop), Madonna (ugh), Yeah Yeah Yeahs (double ugh), Bloc Party (guilty pleasure, fun live show), Paul Oakenfold (hooray! a button presser), Scissor Sisters (look at us we’re androgynous!), Matisyahu (look at me, I’m a Hasidic Jew and I like reggae!), James Blunt (maybe he’ll smoke a blunt, pass out, and save you the boredom of sitting through his set), Sleater-Kinney (respect), Mogwai (great live band), Coheed and Cambria (What about the voice of Claudio Sanchez? How did it get so high?), Wolf Parade (overrated), Gnarls Barkley (Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse; kudos), Phoenix (wannabe crossover electronica), Coldcut (somebody at Goldenvoice really likes trip-hop), Digable Planets (are they considered old school yet?), Amadou & Mariam (Tim Robbins’ character in High Fidelity would be happy), Louie Vega (DJ), Mylo (DJ Set), Seu Jorge (solid, the Life Aquatic guy), Ted Leo & Pharmacists (good choice), The Go! Team (good fun stuff), Kaskade (DJ), Metric (they’ve played so many LA shows since their last album), Editors (was Interpol busy?), Art Brut (overrated, but understandable), Dungen (cool band, hopefully their live show has improved), The Dears (The Blands), Jamie Lidell (Beck’s favorite blue eyed soul singer), The Magic Numbers (overrated KCRW faves), Los Amigos Invisibles (really? more worldbeat?), Jazzanova (trip-hop). stellastarr (was Interpol busy?), Michael Mayer (club music), Murs featuring 9th wonder (hip-hop), Mates of State (miss last month's show at the Troub?), Gilles Peterson (DJ), Infadels (at the Key Club on 5/3), Gabriel & Dresden (club music), Minus the Bear (miss last month’s show @ Spaceland?), OneRepublic (they got a night off from the Key Club?), Be Your Own Pet (Thurston Moore’s favorite teens; @ the Troub on 6/27), Chris Liberator (DJ), Youth Group (did you miss their eight recent local appearances?), Giant Drag (good for them; she’s funny), Kristina Sky (putting photos of you DJ'ing CDs on your website is lame), The Octopus Project (their booker obviously deserves a raise)
