We're not even three weeks into the New Year, and it already seems like GOTYE has owned 2012. Last week the 31-year-old Belgian Aussie born as Wally de Backer was announced as part of the massive Coachella lineup (we tabbed him as one of five emerging artists to hit the Cali desert this April) and a few days later his March 29 show at the Paradise was moved to the House of Blues due to overwhelming ticket demand (much like the owners of 2011, M83, had happen in November).
The internet broke twice yesterday, first around noon when At the Drive-In tweeted out their unexpected reunion news, and then roughly seven hours later when COACHELLA unveiled its incredible 2012 lineup. We've digested the attractive headliners (Radiohead, Black Keys, Dre), the surprise reunions (Refused, fIREHOSE, ATDI), and that one famed Britpop heavyweight booking that almost makes up for another year without The Smiths (Pulp! Come on down, your blank check is right over here in Tent B!).
