Two days ago Coachella released the lineup of acts playing this year’s festival. While there are a ton of great artists and bands who will be taking the stage in California over two weekends in April, there were several that jumped out at us as being particularly exciting:
Outkast: For the first time since going on hiatus in 2007, Andre 3000 and Big Boi are getting the band back together, the latest such reunion to take place at Coachella. Considering how big Outkast was in the early- to mid-200s, this is big news and we, like everyone else, are hoping more comes of it than just a one-off show.
The Replacements: Speaking of reunions, Paul Westerberg and crew continue to bring their act to festivals across the country, much to the delight of not only everyone who memorized their lyrics in their 90′s college dorm but also now a whole new group of fans hearing their guitar-driven pop songs for the first time.
HAIM: This band of sisters has taken the music world by storm over the course of the last year and always puts on a great live show. We expect this to be no exception to that rule.
