Where To See Coachella Bands Play When They're Not At Coachella
Bummed you're not going to Coachella this year? Don't shed too many tears because Goldenvoice has released a stellar lineup of sideshows that will take place throughout SoCal in the spring.
Since Coachella takes place over two weekends in April, these individual concerts will give Angelenos a chance to see their favorite bands without having to get sweaty in the Indio desert. From April 8 to May 10, the bands will be playing at venues within L.A. including Club Nokia and El Rey to the outskirts of Pomona at the Fox Theater and the Glasshouse.
Some highlights include The Knife, CHVRCHES, Haim, Ellie Goulding, Blood Orange, Foster the People, Broken Bells, Grouplove, Motörhead, Chromeo, the Toy Dolls, Dum Dum Girls, Waxahatchee, MS MR, MGMT, Little Dragon, Cage the Elephant, the 1975, and the Glitch Mob. Plus, there's a special guest listed on April 10 at the Fox Theater; The Press-Enterprise is taking a stab in the dark that it could be Neutral Milk Hotel or the Replacements, but then again, it could be any band. Let's cross our fingers on this one!
Tickets for the shows all go on sale at different times, with some sales launching today. You can purchase tickets on the Goldenvoice website here.
Here's the poster below with the scheduled line-up. You can view a larger version of it here.
