Radiohead? Live?

Plans are in place. A friend and I are taking a road trip south, to Indio, California, to attend the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. We only have tickets for Saturday, but, man-o-man, what a lineup. Death Cab for Cutie, The Pixies, Stereolab, among lots and lots of bands I’ve never heard before… but mostly, I’m going because Radiohead is the headlining act. I’ve liked Radiohead for a long time, and have always wanted to see them live. Now’s my chance.

I only got the ticket because a friend of mine was unable to go, due to his starting a new job recently. Thanks, man! I owe you big time.

In addition, I’m going to be exposed to so much new music. So cool.

I’ve been so burnt out recently, even though on the surface things are going really well, that having the anticipation of a road trip helps pull my sorry ass through the financial serfdom.

We’ll be camping there overnight. Transportation is being provided by Dollar Rent-a-car, in spite of all the nasty things I’ve done to their cars on past road trips… Hopefully Dollar representatives aren’t reading this right now. As long as I don’t link to their site I should be OK. Unless one of you, my faithful readers, decide to squeal. Don’t be a squealer.
