Jesus christ in a chicken basket. Coachella has posted their final lineup list. I think I'm going to die from excitement. Here's a highlight of the acts that make me giddy like a schoolgirl (with an appropriate number of exclamation marks denoting just how much I'm going to wet my pants when they come on stage):

Beastie Boys
The Donnas
Nightmares on Wax(!!)
Amon Tobin(!!!!!)
Ben Kweller(!)
Thievery Corporation(!)
Sonic Youth(!!!!!!)
Ben Folds
Mouse on Mars
Black Eyed Peas

gang, ok. I'm going to try and collect as much music by the coachella acts as i can this week, via mp3 or borrowed cds or whatever. i really need more info on these jokers before i can make up my mind. so if anyone has fave rave music by the performers, let me know willya? i need to hear it. like, now.

not ben folds though. i know he is great. ditto chili peppers and beastie boys and jack johnson, because i have my projectile vomit response all set there.

Sheesh, it kills me that I wasn't around last year for Bjork. It freaking KILLS me. I'm with Kristen, only mildly enthused about the line-up for this year. I mean, I will probably give in to the desire for a bonding group trip. But $200 (or whatever) is a shit load of money to go see people I don't know and dance till I drop.

Tortoise is also playing at Bimbo's in SF on March 2, also known as this Sunday night.

Whaaaaaat!?!? Goddamn it. Too many things going on this weekend. Perhaps I'll die.

Kristen: I'll work on burning some Tortoise, Amon Tobin, Sonic Youth, Ben Kweller, and Nightmares on Wax for you. The rest is up to everyone else.
