10 artists that should play Coachella by the Sea 2015

2011AlabamaShakesPMVH050412

Yesterday’s announcement of the 2015 Coachella lineup got me pumped — not because I’m looking forward to three sweaty days of over-stimulation in the desert, but because now I get to fantasize about which acts will perform at the Ventura Theater during the event’s bye week.  (Rob Antonini, Loanne Wullaert and Roni Osmer are you listening?)

Who I hope will play Coachella by the Sea (coined by moi, btw)

1. Ryan Adams
I will probably have a stroke if this announced and therefore be unable to attend, but I’m still rooting for it. Sure I’ve hated his last few records but I’m loyal to those I love and he will always be my main man.

2. Alabama Shakes
I’ve listened to their debut album way too much and it’s time I saw them live. It’s also time they put out a new record.

3.Kasabian
Because they’re on constant rotation in my car and they’re named after a Manson girl—the good one.

4.Brant Bjork and the Low Desert Punks
FUCK YES. I’m a desert rock/stoner rock junkie and even though I’ll never get to see Kyuss, there’s still a possibility I can see someone from Kyuss other than Josh Homme (my second love after Ryan Adams).

5. Jenny Lewis
Jenny’s the shit. She’s like a cheerful, poppier Liz Phair. If “Jenny” on The League was a musician, she’d totally be Jenny Lewis. Also if she comes to Ventura, she’s bringing Ryan Adams with her.

6. Steely Dan
Haters gonna hate but who cares?

7. St. Vincent
Because I want to love her.

8. Ghostface Killah
Because I nicknamed my dog “Zoeface Killah” and because Wu-Tang.

9. Tame Impala
I get the feeling their shows are transcendent.

10. Action Bronson
A fat white rapper who’s a chef and sometimes writes about food. What else do you need?

Who will probably play Coachella by the Sea (based only on pad thai-fueled intuition)

Azealia Banks, this year’s Ellie Goulding; Off, we luvs us some punk rock; Run the Jewels, overhyped rap artist of the moment; FKA Twigs, even more overhyped; Lykke Li, critics love her.
