Coachella or Bust!
Not surprisingly, half of Los Angeles is gone, having headed en masse to Indio, Cali, where everyone is about to get their Coachella on. Roxy owner and rock ‘n’ roll royalty Nic Adler is already out in the desert. He and his cohorts were treated to a soundcheck last night by none other than Sir Paul McCartney. What makes this already-sweet treat doubly delish? McCartney soundchecked some Beatles tunes. To quote Adler’s Facebook message to me: “OMG.” Nic also gives us a sneak preview of what to expect from the rest of the fest.
● A little birdy tells me that Urb mag’s party is rumored to have some special guest DJs. Their party is the closest to the site this year — it’s on the same lot, nearly festival grounds, so partygoers can flit between the two without missing out. ● Sam Spiegel, half of dance duo N.A.S.A., writes in that “Coachella is going to be fun. I’ve gone every year since its inception, and I’m stoked to be finally playing this year. We are going to tear the mojave tent down. Total destruction. I think our set will be one of those that people remember at Coachella. Like when Daft Punk played their first show with the pyramid, or Rage.” ● Goodlife.com, an eco-friendly new website, is pairing up at IndiOasis with The Sustainable Living Roadshow, Green Truck, and Coconut Bliss to bring some eco-relief to the parched concertgoers. ● As per usual, Coachella will have no shortage of VIPs. At the T-Mobile G-1 afterparty Saturday night, they expect a smattering of celebs including Adrian Grenier, Carmen Electra, Rumer Willis, Brittany Snow, and Dustin Milligan. Danny Masterson, Rob Patterson, Doug E Fresh, Blagstarr, Spankrock, Kenan Bell, The Whip, Japanese Motors, Franki Chan, Skeet, Abe Vigoda, The Golden Filter, Finger on the Pulse, and Ninjasoni are also expected to flock to the vitaminwater events at the Viceroy Hotel and the Riveria Resort.
