THIS WEEKEND: Another Festival in the Indio Desert (Stagecoach)
You may have heard that something called Coachella went down last weekend at the Empire Polo Field about an hour and a half from here in Indio. This weekend, the ground will once again be plagued by people and water bottles, as it's time for the third annual Stagecoach Festival, affectionately known as the "country Coachella." The main stage is called "mane stage." That's adorable, and appropriate given the amount of horses nearby.
Brad Paisley is headlining Saturday, and Kenny Chesney on Sunday (it's only Saturday and Sunday, like how Coachella used to be pre-2007). Other acts include Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert, Kid Rock, Darius Rucker (!) and Kid Rock.
We're not going out there, but we're betting that some of you are. If so, let us know. I bet country festivals don't attract a lot of naked wizards.
