Coachella 2012: Two Weekends and Advanced Ticket Sales

Next year Coachella will be held over two consecutive weekends and attempt to create two identical festivals with the same lineup. Due to the overwhelming popularity of Coachella 2011, which sold out in a matter of days three months before the festival even took place, having Coachella Weekend 1 (April 13-15, 2012) and Coachella Weekend 2 (April 20-22, 2012) will allow more people to attend.

Advanced ticket sales begin this Friday, June 3rd and will continue until Friday, June 10, 2012. This will be the only opportunity to buy tickets on a payment plan with 10% down & 8 equal monthly payments. Like last year, tickets will be $269 plus fees.

Since this past Coachella was so much fun, going BOTH weekends might be a great idea so you won't have to pick and choose between conflicting set times of all the great artists that will be performing. Eeeek! So excited!


Coachella 2012 Festival passes will go on sale again Friday, January 13th at 10am PST at

Who is Metropolis?

Early rumors that circulated said Metropolis was a collaboration between Skrillex and Porter Robinson, but via Fresh Wet Paint it seems that Metropolis is actually Pance Party. After watching this preview of four songs off the upcoming EP, I don't care who they are, I'm just excited for them to release some music!

In case anyone has doubts about Metropolis' identity, here are all the facts so you can decide for yourself:
1. Metropolis' Facebook and SoundCloud only follows Skrillex, Porter Robinson and Slush Management (the official artist management company for Porter Robinson). *this is why the Skrillex/Porter Robinson collaboration rumors started.
2. Metropolis' Facebook page lists San Francisco as its current location--Pance Party is from SF.
3. Peacetreaty made a mixtape including a track credited as "Metropolis – Trafalgar" while Pance Party also has a track titled "Trafalgar."
4. Metropolis played at EDC Orlando where people said it was NOT Skrillex & P.R. but Pance Party.

Mystery solved.

Throwback Thursdays: Green Day

Green Day's album Dookie (1997) was so great I couldn't pick just one song from it for this week's Throwback Thursday. I haven't really liked anything from Green Day since this album--too bad for them this was their peak as far as I'm concerned.

"When I Come Around" - Green Day
"you know where i'll be found..."

"Welcome to Paradise" - Green Day
"it makes me wonder why i'm still here..."

"Basket Case" - Green Day
"sometimes i give myself the creeps..."
