The Killers, The Cure, & Paul McCartney Are Your Headliners For Coachella ’09

McCartney? Why?

McCartney? Why?

Okay, The Cure and The Killers are huge bands but they are hip enough for the festival going crowd…but why the hell is Paul McCartney playing Coachella? It’s music blasphemy to really dog McCartney, but he is a bit of a beating these days. That song from his iPod commercials made me physically ill, which goes right along with the majority of his solo/Wings stuff. Think about it…how odd is it that McCartney could be going onstage right after Morrissey or Leonard Cohen? Weird right?

The set times aren’t out yet, but I am leaning towards Saturday being particulary badass. You’ve got Band Of Horses, Blitzen Trapper, Calexico, Drive By Truckers, Fleet Foxes, Jenny Lewis, Joss Stone, Superchunk, and The Killers…yes, I don’t mind The Killers…it’s a guilty pleasure.

Friday gets you some M. Ward, Conor Oberst, The Hold Steady…oh screw it, want to see my picks? Click away.
