Hold Me Back!

Coachella 2005 was about the most perfect weekend anyone could ask for. Someone loaned us their Palm Springs condo for the weekend, in the land of breakfast burritos and In-N-Out burgers. I spent the mornings lounging by the pool and the afternoons in Indio, digging on some of the best bands in the world. When you're surrounded by a California sunset, mountains, and some Arcade Fire on stage, life is pretty sweet. And seeing Coldplay with 40,000 people singing:

Your skiii -iiin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn iiiiin to something beautiful
D'you knooooow you know
I love you so!

Amazing. To me, it was perfect. And this year's line up is just as incredible.
Depeche! Daft Punk! Sigur Ros! Franz! YYY! James Blunt! Kaskade! Gabriel and Dresden! Minus the Bear! stellastar! Imogen Heap! and many more! So do I go? Or do I save my $$ and time for World Cup (even though I probably won't get tix to any games - still waiting to hear on the lottery)? Or there's always more weddings to travel to this summer. Hmm.....

maybe if you ask really nice, you can find someone to take you so you don't have to spend your own money.
