Coachella for poor people, part 7

Hooray, this will be my last “couldn’t afford to go to Coachella” post. Yes, I do know it’s Monday and the festival is over and everyone has gone home. But I had an opportunity to go see some live bands last night at TT the Bear’s place in Cambridge, so I jumped on it, figuring Virtual Coachella could wait. Reviews of those sets (and another night out at the infamous Toad) coming up within a few days. Plus a profile of the very cool L.A. band Radars to the Sky.

Coachella for poor people, part 1

For those of us who aren’t in Coachella this weekend (I tried, I really tried… too acerbic, perhaps?), I will be briefly profiling some of the lesser-known bands who will be performing. It’s an amazing lineup this year. Yes, it breaks my heart not to be able to see the Airborne Toxic Event, Leonard Cohen, The Cure, Morrissey, Throbbing Gristle, Conor Oberst, Silversun Pickups, Franz Ferdinand… all on the same bill!
