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

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
