Vacation Day

Although I generally like to start the week off right with a good Monday post, it's just not happening today. Sorry. Instead of spending Sunday blogging and trying to take care of cooking/house/wedding stuff, I spent Sunday at Coachella. And all-day Saturday and late Friday night for that matter too. If you're reading this early on Monday morning, I may still well be in the Indio area, frantically trying to get my bum back to the office before noon.

So yeah, this is our big non-wedding splurge of 2010. It's the weekend I pretend I'm not a cranky nearly-30-year old and I rock out with the kiddies in the Coachella heat. It's the weekend I give up on style and admit that I need ugly-but-comfortable sandals to tackle the festival grounds. And hopefully, it's the weekend that all of the following bands rock us. Hard.
  • Jay Z
  • Portugal the Man
  • Beach House
  • Corrine Baily Rae
  • MGMT
  • Muse
  • Dead Weather
  • Sia
  • Local Natives
  • Julian Casablancas
  • Spoon
  • Phoenix
  • Pavement
  • Thom York
Still sad I'll be missing Grizzly Bear, Passion Pit and Imogen Heap on Friday. Oh well. Rocking will be had, regardless.  Happy Monday.  See you back here when I've recovered a bit more. Don't be surprised if that takes a day (or two.)


  1. Sounds like a blast, great lineup this year (as always). Enjoy the experience and we'll see you after your musical break!

  2. Love LOVE Coachella! I went in 2007 and have missed it ever since. Indio is one of the most beautiful places on earth- esp at sunset surrounded by the light installations, large crowds, and the best bands!

  3. "I spent Sunday at Coachella."


  4. We have the same taste in music it seems! Love Thom York, Imogen Heap and Phoenix and Passion Pit are always playing on my ipod now! And Spoon is always classic :)

  5. You pretty much had me at "Jay-Z". Seeing him perform live is definitely on my list to do one of these days. You also need to tell us how Sia was live. And, why did I think Jakob Dylan was going to be there? Was that just a dream I had?

  6. pavement & jay z ?! so jealous! have the best time

  7. Really cool line up. I wanna be there. Your blog is so cool and i'm now your newest follower. Feel free to visit my blog and follow me if you like.

  8. I am totally jealous. I was saying this weekend that Coachella is one thing I have to do in LA before I die (or we move, whichever comes first) and R crinkled his nose and said, "Really?" I was bummed. Hope you had an amazing weekend!!
