Oh My God- Mark Ronson(f. Lily Allen
All I'm saying about Lily Allen is that she's poppy and quirky. This song has fm radio quality. Those horns in the hook! Lily Allen on the vox! Huh. Mark Ronson is kind of a douche, though.
Mark Ronson's Wiki Entry Makes Me Hate Him
Oh man do I hate "live blogging." I look at that particular aspect of the blogging phenomenon and I'm like "fuck, maybe blogs ARE as super lame as regular journalists say they are." Everytime I read a "live blog" of ANYTHING I want to gouge my eyes out with a melon scooper (followed by putting my eyes in an industrial strength blender with some peach sorbet, vanilla vodka, and a touch of cream to create a delicious summer drink).
So: Live Blogging, don't do it.
Honestly, I don't know if there is anything fresh to say about Coachella except the fact that it has peaked. This could be the year. Proposed Headilne: "I'm never going to coachella again"? We'll see.
In the interest of saving everyone time, I will write a review of tonights Jesus and Mary Chain show in Pomona:
Jesus and Mary Chain
The Glass House
For those who've never been, the Glass House in Pomona is a super cool venue. It reminds me of the Casbah and the OLD 9:30 club in DC. Super inimate. The JAMC show was my first visit. Unforch, got there too late to see Icarus Line. Mega Bummer! I'd heard great things about them.
In honor of "Coachella Weekend" I ordered a super fruity drink at the bar. Swear to god, bartender didn't bat an eye lash. I love Los Angeles/Greater Los Angeles Area. Before the JAMC set the talk was mostly focused on how long it would take us to drive to Coachella afterwards (60 min! 90 min! 120 min!). This despite my REPEATED attempts to focus the conversation on the fact that my "reporting" of ScarJo had merited me mention on mtv and nme (I know! right? It IS amazing.) Nobody really shared my excitement other then the obligatory rolling of the eyes, sighing and muttering of "that's really FANTASTIC for you." Now I know how Pete Wentz feels all the time.
JAMC came on super, duper late, but everyone (all Coachella-ites, I'm thinking) was mellow and a'networking up a storm during the interval. Hell- I got there after icarus line so who knows how long it took.
Anyway, they came out and were, for the most part, decent. I kind of compare it to...um... New Order at Coachella? Though some of it was more like Gang of Four at Coachella. I don't want to piss off the die hard JAMC fans out there (Some Candy Talking, what?). So I'll just leave it at that.
The drive to Coachella afterward was non-descript; brief excitement at the rental agency, but everything worked out. House is OK, not great. We'll see. Can't wait for the full two and a half hours of the comedians of comedy tomorrow on the first day of coachella. oh yeah- and bjork. That should be "aight."
Dedicated to classics and hits.
