There’s hope yet for those of you regretting your decision to stay in rainy, windy New York instead of shipping out to sunny Indio, California for this year’s Coachella. The festival will be streaming every performance to its YouTube channel, so you can watch from the comfort of your home (or office).
Allow a Real Music Expert to give you the indisputably correct viewing schedule for today’s shows. Unless you’re feeling nostalgic for early-’00s Canadian romanticism (Stars at 3:30), you can wait to tune in until Divine Fits take the stage at 4:35. From there, tune into Metric at 5:20 for even more early-’00s Canadianism, then to dub reggae pioneer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at 6:20 (that one is The Most Important). After Scratch, watch Violent Femmes at 6:35, Japandroids at 7:00, Sparks at 7:50, Beach House at 8:40, Yeah Yeah Yeahs at 9:30, Grinderman at 10:10, The Stone Roses at 11:40, and (definitely) Earl Sweatshirt at 12:15.
Got all that?
