It was a great trip. Photos (including a celebrity sighting!) links and reviews to come this week. The synopsis (* indicates band at Coachella):
Liked very much: the Bro, Garv, and Cam; *Coldplay; *Amp Fiddler; brunch at Toast; desert weather from 3:00-8:00 PM; the Pacific Ocean, those giant freaking windmills on I-10, singing to Garv's CD collection of one-hit 90's alternative bands.
Liked: *Weezer, *Mercury Rev, Southwest Airlines, *Razorlight, wizards, sleeping on the plane, *Ambulance LTD.
50/50: *Snow Patrol
Disappointing: *Wilco, the Morongo Casino, the vegetarian options at the food tent, the 1/4 mile line to check in at LAX.
Hated: Getting crushed by the crowd between the Wilco and Weezer sets.
