Coachella Preview - pt 1 All The Bands We Loved Before

As you may or may not have noticed, we're insanely ecstatic to be going to Coachella this year because SO MANY of our FAVORITES are playing. We've double and triple and quadruple covered some of them so far in the years our blog has been running AND in the current Coachella preview series. I'm going to try to get through all the rest of the bands that we have covered in the years past, who are also playing Coachella.

Back in September 2010, I was feeling pretty spent. You know what's funny, but not really, is that it was a month before I received a health diagnosis that told me that uh, yeah, you have a reason to be a bit worn down. At any rate, I claimed this album helped me find my soul.

Check out Grace Potter and The Nocturnals.

Earlier that year, in January of 2010, I discovered a lil band called Fanfarlo. Now in their 6th year together, they've recently released their second full-length album, Rooms Filled With Light. It's so new that I haven't given it all that many spins yet. So let me randomly pick a track to share with you. Of course we all have our opinion on which track is the best track of an album, but for me, it's usually 4 or 5. Track 4 is "Shiny Things", and we all like shiny things don't we?

You can probably find them somewhere near you. They're on tour now and will pick up again in the fall. Check out what my initial impression was: Fanfarlo

Mookie discovered The Black Angels in a conversation with a barfly. Wait. Can males be barflies? What are males who are ever-present bar patrons called? Either way, Mookie decided they were "good stuff." Check out Black Angels
