    Anyone going to Coachella this weekend?

    Very sad to be missing it. If you are going, what band/DJ are ya most excited about? The lineup is so amazing this year. Have you been before or is this your first time? Also, anyone recording it? I'd be most excited to see Infected Mushroom. I heard that there will be a performance based on my favorite book/CD (Wild Animus) there, sort of performance art, but it'll be taking place in the crowd, should be some randy weird horny-ram costumes and stuff. The CD "Wild Animus" is up on imeem now as well as a contest to win free tix to Coachella: Wild Animus

    !!! advises that their name is "any guttural noise repeated three times." Chk chk chk, pow pow pow, unh unh unh, whatever yr pleasure. When I worked at a record store, we filed !!! before the As.

    hope that helps.

    My little sister ended up going to Coachella. She said it was a blast, and that she kept running from stage to stage because there was so much good stuff. She said she Wild Animus Wolf Hyrbid dancers and liked how they interacted with the audience. Her favorite act was Bjork, she said Willie Nelson and Sonic Youth came in a close second. Not my taste really, I think I'd have been more into Paul Van Dyk and Infected Mushroom.

    Don't know much about Infected Mushroom other than even Forever Autumn would have to agree that they have a worse name than !!!.

    If you're into Paul Van Dyk there's at least a slight chance that you might like VNV Nation. Maybe not but I'm always looking for allies : )

    Well, it's electronic. The most popular genre term is probably something like "future pop" or some BS term like that. A little bit techno'ish, a little bit synthpop'ish, a little dark. RIYL probably something like Covenant, Apoptygma Berzerk, or Icon Of Coil. If your curious let me know and I'll send you something to listen to.
