E. explains why she skipped the Desert Trip, in spite of a) her love of the desert, b) her love of music, c) her love of Coachella, d) her perpetual infatuation with "the cute Beatle," and e) her deep admiration for Paul Tollett & crew.
With lead Luke Spiller, The Struts could be anything it wants to be. It’s clearly been seen by their handlers already. That’s a good thing. People with influence and the power to shape the band have done a nice job to date. They have a star on their hands. They know it.
Paul Tollett has created a monumental event featuring an unprecedented collection of rock and roll royalty. But it’s a mockery of a sham...
You have to give Paul Tollett credit. He not only created Coachella but curates who we see every year. It’s the first festival of the year and it’s a beautiful event. Goldenvoice (GV) is on their game 24/7 and they set the tone and artist schedule for everything that happens for the year in every festival in North America and beyond. Don't believe me? Look at LCD Soundsystem...
There’s a spot I want to get to and I’m going there. I’m going to be kinda nice. I’ll tap on your shoulder. When I do, be kind and just move to the side just a few inches. Rule #1 of dealing with people in crowds, when someone really wants to go through the crowd, let them. Push them along. Seriously.
I loathe The 1975. Ask EvilTapo; we've had many, many conversations about how their particular brand of screed makes my ears bleed (and not in a good way).
