HELLO SPOTIFY PLAYLIST: COACHELLA 2013 QUICK PICKS

Coachella 2013: Quick Picks Set times are out and music festival season has officially begun with Coachella on it's way this weekend. Sad to say that we will not be attending but that won't stop us from making a mark thanks to some good friends. (You'll see why later this month.) So in honor of all the times we have gone in the past, Sam and I have created a short but awesome playlist of our top picks for this year's fest.

Quick Picks for Coachella:

IO ECHO / from IAMSOUND, the label that brought you Lord Huron definitely check out this band

YOUTH LAGOON / After Sam listened to this cassette tape nonstop for a solid month, we checked out Trevor Powers at Disney Concert Hall opening for Death Cab. The venue was intimate and his sound was impeccable.

ALT-J / Don't be a jackass and miss this show. It's guaranteed to be too much fun.
