The thing I love about Coachella is that aside from the festival circuit bands, they get a handful of rare acts that no one else in the US even really tries for. The best shows last year included Atoms for Peace, The Specials and Fever Ray. I can't wait for this years lineup to be announced.

True that. Every year I find out about a band that is legendary that I had never heard of until they reunite at Coachella. Throbbing Gristle. Sven Vath. And I also find out there's a huge following for a band I thought was on the margins.
yeah, and sasquatch never gets bands that coachella hasnt had or doesnt have. the converse exists in perpetual truth. but thats only cool if you can actually see the stage which is way easier up north.
It was shocking when they headed Sasquatch, but I can't believe they've gone on to do Bonnaroo and all these other big festivals. They are just a hair above Nickleback in terms of musicality and lyrics.

Looks like Coachella could be the last live performance of Menomena. The weakest link left the band, but the others will continue playing out their current booked shows, with Coachella being the final one (so far). It would be neat if they played Sasquatch before breaking up though.
