Alas, I’m stuck in Brooklyn this weekend and won’t be in the California desert, but at least it’s going to be 76 degrees!!

To make everyone either pumped or jealous, some highlights in Indio.


Conor Oberst and the MVB. Girl Talk. The Black Keys. Noah and the Whale.


Fleet Foxes. Calexico. Superchunk.


My Bloody Valentine. X. Public Enemy. No Age. Vivian Girls.

Actually, the line-up isn’t that great. But I guess it’s all about the vibe and the festival feel.

Here’s a clip of Girl Talk from the 2007 festivus.
