If you are one of the fortunate who scored passes to this year's epic two-weekend Coachella megafest (and didn't have to sell your kidney) you might already be thinking about what you are going to be eating out there. It's likely you'll be shelling out a small fortune for bottles of water to counteract the desert heat and that raw throat you earned screaming during your favorite song. And there will be food trucks--oh, yes, there will be food trucks.

Imagine if the food vendors lineup was presented and published like the musical acts lineup, as in on a poster complete with bigger font for headliners and so on. Imagine no more. Food is the New Rock has assembled a projected (read: spoof) lineup for the festival's eats, and done just that: Made a poster!

It's nice to see Imodium getting the spotlight it deserves, isn't it? Now, I don't know about you, but I think I'm skipping "That Luna Bar You Stuck in Your Crotch." It might be a letdown after "Crab Fries with Special Guest Garlic Mayo." Besides, everyone knows Luna Bars are much better in a smaller venue.
