coachella lineup announced: the brutal rumor prediction report card

after daft punk rumors, beastie boys rumors, rolling stones rumors, cancellation rumors, and white iphone rumors, the official 2k11 coachella lineup has finally been unveiled. it seems that the organizers selected from other fests to assemble this lineup. they took some hard fest acts and mixed em with a bunch of fyf fest acts and added some lamestream hollywood bowl acts and voila… the 2k11 lineup!

last week, yours truly took the time (very little time) to spread attention towards this totally overrated fest with some totally uneducated guesses as to who might perform.

so how did i do? well… i scored a modest 9 out of 42. not too shabby considering part of the list was pure wishlist fantasy and i typed that list with my kitten eyes closed.

here are my correct picks (in no particular order):

best coast
pj harvey
sleigh bells
the arcade fire
kings of leon
off!
tame impala
yelle
kanye west

enough about me, what do u think of this years lineup? is it amazing or is it poo? who are you most suprised/excited to see on the list?

go examine the full lineup over at the official coachella site. make sure to have a magnifying glass handy so you can see whos playing earlier in the days… http://www.coachella.com

brutal rumor: coachella 2k11 lineup leaked, not leaked #rumorwave

as we near the official announcement, the annual coachella lineup guessing game is upon us and the internet-o-sphere has already taken to predicting the lineup based on bubbling rumors, tour schedules, album releases, iphone coming to verizon, myspace laying off employees, and statistics from past coachellas.

so as a member of the elite music blogging community, i too will construct a coachella 2k11 lineup consisting of totally uneducated guesses, wishlist rubbish, and past coachella participation factors. i have made sure to include some shitty acts since every year there are tons of barf worthy artists on the bill.

here is the brutal hipster coachella 2k11 lineup in no particular order…

radiohead
best coast
velvet revolver
pj harvey
sleigh bells
the arcade fire
daft punk
kings of leon
lykke li
kanye west

yelle drops new supermicroscopicnanomix

lady electro pop tart, yelle, has a dropped a new minimix via kitsuné teasing her new single “la musique”. the minimix is, in fact, so mini that smaller than my patience for dedicating a full blog post announcing a mere 1:45 minute-long snippetpreviewsampleexcerptteaser.

i like yelle but if you care to waste your time with a silly preview, go here: http://official.fm/track/153057
