Music Festivus for the Rest of Us

I've been quite happy with the re-emerging popularity of Music Festivals in recent years.

Three of the major North American "destination" festivals held each year, The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (in Indio, California just outside Palm Springs), Bonnaroo (in Manchester, Tennessee … by Nashville) and Lollapalooza (Chicago) deliver some of the best multi-day/multi-stage concert action money can buy.

Coachella always sets the tone for the outdoor concert season, as it's the first major music fest to take place in the calendar year. This year's dates are April 15th to 17th, and it sold out quick, fast and in a hurry (looking for tix? try eBay, Craigslist or StubHub). This year's headliners include Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire, Kanye West, The Strokes, and Animal Collective. Plus there's been tons o' talk about this year's Death From Above 1979 reunion. The band is set to take the stage on Sunday's portion of the event, and will play several other shows throughout the year.

P&B Philosophy Regarding Standards of Blogging Excellence

P&B Bylaws for Wickedness in the Form of a Blog

1 - We will strive to provide information that is timely and accurate. If any information is deemed to be incorrect or erroneous, we will update the information as soon as possible. You can send an email to Turnbull or Marc advising us of any necessary changes. As are things on the interweb, for every falsehood there is an equal truth.

2 - We pledge to not use big, fancy, "$1,000" words in out posts. This is not a case of dumbing down, but to avoid the stench of pretentiousness. Yeah we're talking about you, album reviewers of the world! Fancy words do not make you look intelligent. They prove that you've invested in a Thesaurus: Super Synonym Edition.

3 - We will provide thought provoking posts. We highly encourage you to participate by sharing your comments. All comments will be moderated for content that we deem unacceptable. Trolling is strongly prohibited ... and dumb.
