As I write this, Coachella weekend one is hours from beginning. It is breaking my heart to know I will not be there this year. Last week, I started from the bottom of the bill and worked my up. This week I’m working from the top, down…because apparently I’m a glutton for punishment and just can’t help thinking about Coachella. Why else would I do this to myself? Oh, because I get to listen to a bunch of music I like anyway? OK OK. If anyone reads this and likes the playlist so much that they want to donate a Coachella weekend two ticket to me, that’s totally fine.
