That surge in Internet use across Southern California today may have something to do with the release (finally) of the Coachella Schedule. As expected, we’re going to have to make some tough choices (Digable Planets or Yeah Yeah Yeahs? Bloc Party or Sleater Kinney or Paul Oakenfold? Kanye West or My Morning Jacket?)
On an amusing side note, I learn about the surprise late addition (registration?) of Kanye West to the lineup yesterday when someone calls the mezzanine and asks for some movies. “Yeah, I’m calling from Coachella,” the caller says, “Gotta get some movies for Kanye. Keep the man happy.” The movies he asks for? Amadeus. The Gospel At Colonus. And Jade.
