The McNuttCast: Episode Three – Coachella Preview

April 3, 2009

mcnuttcastcoachellaIt’s the Indie Rock mecca to which Ryan has always desired to plan a pilgrimage, and 2009 is the year it happens. With headliners like Paul McCartney and The Killers, subheadliners like Franz Ferdinand and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and more variety than festival virgin Myles could possibly imagine, the Coachella music festival [Full act list at the link] is the foundation of the McNuttCast’s trek to California starting next week. So as we won’t be around for the next couple of weeks as we are off on the other side of the continent, we figured we’d spend a bit of time delving into Coachella a few weeks in advance.

Discussion includes which acts Ryan is most excited about, which performer Ryan thinks could really surprise the crowd, which act Ryan feels should have been a headliner, and which acts Myles is actually hip enough to recognize. If you know little or nothing about these bands, you’ll relate to Myles’ ignorance, and get a chance to hear some clips from all sorts of bands taking the stages outside of Indio, California in two weeks. If you’re like Ryan, and really know these bands, there’s some discussion about whether a festival setting is an ideal setting to experience music, especially for the first time, and a glimpse into some of the unsung bands on the lineup.

Regardless, there’s plenty for any music fan, or curious non-listener, to enjoy. This is also likely to be our new structure, having a more free-form discussion every other week, with a more structured, news-driven broadcast in the alternate weeks. It fits the best for us, but as always we would love to hear your thoughts on the show – leave us a comment below!
