Coachella 2009 Lineup Revealed

First of all, Amy Winehouse still performs? Anyway, the headliners here are decent. The Cure and My Bloody Valentine should put on fantastic shows, but the greatness is hidden in the smaller font bands. fork/knife favorites Band of Horses and Fleet Foxes will make an appearance, along with quality acts like TV on The Radio, Beirut, Silversun Pickups, Hercules and Love Affair, and much more. Don't count on coverage of Coachella, but plan on extensive coverage of Lollapalooza, which we're all dying to see the lineup for.

The most important person on this lineup is Leonard Cohen. He is a legendary songwriter (his most well-known song is hallelujah (covered by Jeff Buckley)) who has hardly toured at all. His tour (the first in 15 years) which started in 2008 has barely ever come to the united states. Him playing at a festival- especially one that is much more youth oriented is a big deal.
