It was the text heard ’round the world. Or at least around the room. I was sitting in the control room at TradioV last night while LAmb writers Ben Gill and David Fisch wrapped up the weekly Blogcast (to be posted later this morning) when I got a text from my husband: “Coachella lineup released!” We were nearing the very end of the show, but I texted the breaking news to Ben and pointed at my phone frantically until I got his attention. The guys were then able to spend the last three minutes of the Blogcast rattling off what proved to be an amazing list of performers.

In the clear light of morning, I’ve had time to more thoroughly digest the Coachella lineup, and I suggest you do too because it’s one for the ages. Personal highlights include The Postal Service, Phoenix, Violent Femmes, Local Natives, and The Airborne Toxic Event, but let me know in the comments who has you excited for Coachella 2013. Festival passes for both weekends go on sale Tuesday, January 29th at 10 AM PST. Passes for Weekend 1 must be purchased with a shuttle pass or a car camping pass, and new for 2013, the price you see is the price you pay (all fees are included).
