Let's face it: Picking and choosing from the Coachella bill can be as daunting as sitting down at the Cheesecake Factory—the choices are multitudinous and, quite often, overwhelming. So we took it upon ourselves to narrow the pool down for you, offering up some suggestions for a thoroughly enjoyable Coachella experience.

And, lastly, to live vicariously through us: follow us on twitter @LAist.

Switch @ Sahara 12:00-1:30 PM London-based DJ Dave Taylor, the prolific remixer who produced M.I.A's "Kala" and Santogold's "Creator," will be on the decks if you get there early enough.
Alberta Cross @ Outdoor Theatre 1:25-2:10 PM These Brooklyn-based Anglo-Swedish rockers have a handful of promising Americana tunes. Think Kings of Leon meets Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
Noah & the Whale @ Outdoor Theatre 2:25-3:15 PM London's finest folk rock quartet, Noah and the Whale, made their foray into the mainstream realm last year with a Saturn Outlook television commercial. You know, that other prominent song in the last three years that revolves around whistles. Their pop-laden set will inevitably perk you up.
People Under The Stairs @ Gobi 3:05-3:55 PM Some of LA's finest emcees and self-proclaimed B-boys are slated to flow in the afternoon. Having recent finished their sixth studio album, People Under the Stairs will be exercising their glib tongues, as well as rousing the masses with their humor.
