coachella, rilo kiley, jenny lewis
did a major update of my ipod today, including the addition of a bunch of the performances off the coachella dvd that came out earlier this year. i've never been to the coachella valley music and arts festival and honestly i'm not sure if i would mind not ever going, due mostly to the heat and the logistics of the festival concerts. having grown up in indio, i know that heat all too well and would do (or not do, as the case may be) most anything to avoid it. but anyway, the dvd is a good way to see some of the performances (though feeling the performances is really what going to concerts is all about), and there are some great ones--arcade fire, belle and sebastian, bright eyes, the mars volta, flaming lips (the origin of the giant human hamster ball), and of course radiohead. i've already posted the pixies reunion performance of "where is my mind", but if anyone who wanders by here would like to see more just leave a comment. disc 2 of this dvd set is pretty disappointing--there's not much of anything on it except for one or two good interviews. for my friends at rilokiley.net, here's the short interview with jenny lewis of rilo kiley, along with a song that was available off the 7" split ep that team love records included with orders of rabbit fur coat.
