Wow...well everyone I'm back. Coachella was amazing! 72 incredible hours, 60,000 people from all over the world, 100s of bands/djs, and about 16 total hours of sleep in 4 nights. Needless to say I had a great time and I'm exhausted.

Well, I had to make some sacrifices over the weekend...and wasn't able to see everyone I wanted due to overlapping (5 stages + the Do Lab + the Dome = Coachella '09 - you can't see everything, my philosophy was appreciate who you're seeing and don't worry about who you have to miss).
