Happy Week Between Coachella Weekends!

Because of what's been going on in the desert (let this be your guide) there are MANY good shows going on right here in the good old Los Angeles during this tweener week. So that rules.

But let's only highlight SEVEN of these good shows because MORE isn't necessarily better and a few is often PLENTY.

#1 Coachella - Coachella - Coachella - Coachella - 2016 A.D.

This is the lineup.

(also I started playing this video when I was in 8th Grade and it's still going)
