I wanted to be the first person in the blogosphere to comment on what bands you should see at Coachella. So here goes.
The Aggrolites -- LA's best white boy reggae/soul/funk band. They wear cool clothes and know how to throw a dance party.
Thievery Corporation -- Maybe you know them, maybe you don't. The only time I went to Coachella (hello 2003), I saw these guys and they were great. Killer dance/groove stuff. Or maybe that was the weed talking.
Superchunk -- They're still around?
Bob Mould Band -- Worth seeing for the off off off off off chance he plays "Everything Falls Apart," which I'd bet he won't.
The Night Marchers -- John Reis' latest band. Most musicians get shittier as time goes on. For some reason, he gets better.
Paul McCartney -- Duh.
Morrissey -- Hey Morrissey, shit or get off the pot. We want the Smiths.
Leonard Cohen -- My girlfriend would kill me if I didn't mention her favorite Canadian singer/songwriter.
Crystal Method -- Watch out for the brown acid, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnn.
Amy Winehouse -- Insert your own joke here.

The Cure -- If I was ever going to slit my wrists in a bathtub like some romantic noir flick, Disintegration would be playing in the background.
Public Enemy -- I'm fully aware that it's 2009, not 1989, but shouldn't their name be bigger on the flyer?
I reserve the right to add to this list up until the festival closes April 19.
