Coachella & Touring with CocoRosie

After torrential downpours here on the east coast earlier in the week, I hope everyone is now enjoying the beginnings of sunshine in NY! It’s come just in time to prepare me for California, I suppose.

This Wednesday, my favorite airline Jet Blue will bring me to Los Angeles, and I am excited to announce that Friday, Busdriver and I will perform at Coachella. For those of you attending, Friday night’s schedule includes Bjork, Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Interpol, and Rufus Wainwright (among many others), so I hope we are done in time to check everyone out!

4.27 Coachella Valley Music Festival, Indio, CA

(the set-time will be announced in a few days- visit www.coachellla.com for full details)

Stick around for the rest of the weekend and catch people like Peter Bjorn & John, Blonde Redhead, Grizzly Bear, The Roots, Red Hot Chili Peppers, !!!, my homie Colin playing with the Arcade Fire, and CocoRosie, with whom we will embark on a two week tour with that Sunday!

I’ll have a week left in NY upon my return from touring before leaving for a summer-long organic farming fellowship in Connecticut, so things will be very quiet for me until September.

I hope to see some of you on the road over the next few weeks. Have a wonderful spring and summer.
