mojo-photo-coachellakiss.jpgWhat am I going to wear?! The LA Times’ Buzz Bands blog (say that three times fast) has a quick update on this year’s lineup for the big festival, and insists that it will not include a reunited My Bloody Valentine. But, but, but, the fake flyer said they would be there!! The post does contain the most serious-looking list yet of bands “expected” to appear at the festival, some of which have confirmed on their own websites or tour info sites, and some of which would probably be hanging around anyway so why not put them on the bill. There’s also the matter of the post’s odd title: “Coachella roster slowly takes shape (and getting misshapen)”; is that a hint of a Pulp reunion? Anyone?

The official announcement is expected as early as this Friday (meep! meeep!) but click the good old “continues inside” button for the Times’ “expected” list, rearranged by me in order of headliner-y-ness:

The Breeders
Portishead
The Verve
Death Cab for Cutie
Spiritualized
Justice
Autolux
UNKLE
Cold War Kids
Battles
Junkie XL
Louis XIV
VHS or Beta
Chromeo
Jens Lekman
Junkie XL
Dan Deacon
The Cinematic Orchestra
Kid Sister
Crystal Castles
Brett Dennen

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
