Gorillaz got it right last night. With my only prior conception of
their live show being a couple of reports from early summer festival stops
and an appearance at the 2006 Grammy's,
I was rather trepidacious heading into their Agganis tour stop. Sure,
the performance with Madonna was cool at the time. But with a movie being released next week where Steve-O will undoubtedly get kicked in the balls in 3-D, technological wonderment doesn't pack nearly the same punch as it did four years ago.
The lineup for this year's installment of the Coachella music and arts festival was announced today. The headliners: Jay-Z on Friday, Muse on Saturday, and the Gorillaz on Sunday. Reunited favorites Faith No More and Pavement play on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, while chart-toppers Vampire Weekend show up on Friday.
