Pick Your Poison: Wednesday 7-18-12
So it’s come to this: Coachella is expanding onto cruise ships. Yes my friends, if you haven’t heard yet, coming this December there will be two S.S. Coachella cruises you can take – ones that will features bands and artists you’re hopefully familiar with. Both voyages launch from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and go from either December 16-19 or December 19-23. The first goes to the Bahamas, while the second goes to Jamaica. Who will be on board these native Coachella trips? The lineup includes Pulp, Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Grimes, Cloud Nothings, Girl Talk, James Murphy, Sleigh Bells, Warpaint, !!!, Black Lips, Simian Mobile Disco, The Rapture, Father John Misty and a few more. Can you imagine Jarvis Cocker or the guys from Hot Chip hanging out by the pool? Seems a little odd to me, but what do I know. It’ll probably be a whole lot of fun. And I bet it sells out super fast too. Depending on how much you want to spend and how many people you have with you, prices can range anywhere from $500 a person to $2,000+ a person. I’m intrigued, but don’t nearly have the money to commit to it. If you want to learn more, here’s the website with all the details. Instead of spending money, have some free mp3s on me today, via Pick Your Poison. A few recommendations include tracks from Baby Baby, Bon Accord, Feature Cuts, Pomegranates, and Black Light Dinner Party. In the Soundcloud section, you won’t want to miss streaming songs from Airbird or the Atoms for Peace remix of Other Lives.
