coachella 2007
funtimes in the desert 2007.
thursday prequel: we arrive and make haste to the kickass modern house rental.
later...on to the Filter magazine party at the Corona Yacht club where we drank free drinks and took silly photos. and danced to the soothing sounds of dj partyben.

Fri 4/27: first day of festival. First we had to get there - 30 minute walk through what was desert is now future housing development. Then: the scene! Bands - including Of Montreal, Arctic Monkeys, Peaches, Jarvis Cocker, Interpol, Faithless. Read Partyben's blog about it.

Saturday theme: damn it's hot out. Saw Regina Spektor, the New Pornographers, Kings of Leon, the Arcade Fire, and LCD Soundsystem. Oh yeah, and tried to avoid the Red Hot Chili Peppers - and their many many fans.

Sunday 4.29
Still in the 100s but definitely more pleasant. Saw some great sets by Junior Boys, Kaiser Chiefs, Lily Allen, Klaxons and the suave Air.
