GDD™ Picks — COACHELLA 2013

It’s hard to believe that Coachella is now hours upon us. The annual desert frolic is one of our favorite festivals in the world, and lucky for us it’s right in our backyard. We have to commend Goldenvoice in a big way for this year’s bookings, as it seems like they’ve generally strayed from the widely acceptable cheesy bookings (like last year) and gone a bit more toward the edge. We at GDD™ have collectively come up with our top 5 picks per day, along with 3 honorable mentions as it was nearly impossible to only choose 5 acts. Check our must see list below, and we’ll see you out in the desert this weekend!
