You might just be the only person in town this weekend if you're not heading out to the scorching deserts of Indio. Our favorite pick is My Bloody Valentine: With concerns over noise pollution, we cant help but wonder if Kevin Shields and friends are going to be able to pull off in a festival setting their trademark live feature: volume. Their last round of live shows in the area enveloped audiences in a terrifying din, which reportedly went as high as 130 dBthats jet-engine loud. Despite the noise restrictions, My Bloody Valentine will still be able to remind you why a Smashing Pumpkins reunion was totally not necessary.
