Well, I’ve already gone on the record as not being interested in going to Coachella, not because the lineup of bands wasn’t exciting but because I wasn’t interested in the discomforts involved in the crowds, heat, overpriced food, lines for port-a-potties, mobs waiting to get on shuttles back to the expensive motel/condo and general fatigue involved with spending 8 hours a day watching bands. This first weekend of Coachella, my decision was cemented when I plugged my laptop into my TV to watch the almost-live-stream of Coachella Live on YouTube, what some in the internet snarkosphere have dubbed “Couchella.” Get it? Couch instead of “Coach.” I know! Puns! Anyways, Couchella essentially eliminated the one reason I might have wanted Coachella: the fear of missing out on a big cultural event in real time.
