Dust in the Wind

No local love in Indio.

The closet to thing to local representation at the 2008 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, is Austin TV, an indie instrumental band from Mexico City. Truth be told, the lineup's actually a bit disappointing. Jack Johnson headlines Friday night, supported by the Verve, the Raconteurs, and the Breeders. Roger Waters recreates Dark Side of the Moon on Sunday.

After last year, it's doubtful OTR would consider making the trip back to Indio, Calif., not even for the Portishead and Kraftwerk double bill Saturday. A few Texas residents, namely Billy Joe Shaver, Jack Ingram, and the Greencards, are slated to appear as the dust settles the following weekend for the Stagecoach Country Music Festival.
