Really M, that’s the clincher for you? Cause for me – well, we all know I’m a sucker for ANY & EVERY handful of talentless well connected f***s…

All of those bands are winning! Can’t wait. I hope they add ‘Tigerblood’, ‘Sheenis Envy’ and/or ‘Warlock and the Trolls’ to the line-up. Fingers crossed.

I just hope that Warlock and the Trolls aren’t playing the stage next to Warlock Trolls like last year: AWKWARD!

F!!!! The Klaxons just cancelled their North American dates! Dammit. I really wanted to see their set at Coachella. Hopefully someone good like British Sea Power (who will actually be in the area) will get their time slot.

Let the guessing begin…

I am coming back to LA Saturday with my entire family to see my Irish band Lluther play their first LA show at the Viper Room. Canada, that means you and all your damn canadian entourage are also coming back Saturday night. Yes, that’s correct. I know I am crazy. I promise that we wont miss the duran duran/strokes guitar hero duel over Amanda Decadenet, ok? M is excused cause she’s got 2 shows here to worry about and is out for chella this year.

You’re obsessed. It’s sweet. They better be good, but then again, you surely didn’t let me down with the Local Natives referral, etc.

I’ve seen all the Saturday artists in much better venues way too recently or often – the only thing I regret on Saturday is maybe Bright Eyes, but Bright Eyes has never acknowledged his undying love for me or the fact that he’s like 3 years late as of today for when he was supposed to propose. Not even as Monster of Folk or any side project. So who needs him?!
