COACHELLA 2014: Set Times, Selections and a New Approach.

The Coachella 2014 set times were finally released but, oddly, the related stress, hand-wringing and forcible removable of tufts of hair from the scalp isn't really there.

Did concert promoters Goldenvoice get it just right this time? Perhaps. Have I grown disinterested in Coachella? No, I'm still quite excited about it. Is the 2014 lineup ho-hum? On the contrary, it is one of the best overall lineups in quite some time. (Perhaps the lack of reasonably priced tickets on sites like StubHub.com is a clear reflection of that. Two-thousand dollars for a non-VIP Weekend 1 pass? You gotta be fuckin' kidding me!).

Perhaps the real reason for the lack of stress is that I am approaching Coachella 2014 with more of a sense of freedom: I'm just going with the flow. Research new bands? Pfft. I'll stumble upon them. Planning out 30 minutes of this band then 15 minutes of that DJ over here and then back across the vast Polo Fields for the end of that set? Forget about it. The best laid plans are often laid to waste by the spirit of the moment. So, I'm just going with it.

All that being said, here is a rough outline/guideline of the acts I want to check out. See you there!
