Stagecoach - California's Country Music Festival
This news briefing/post goes out to all of our Left Coast fans out there. I happen to run across this fantastic little country music festival that'll be going on in Indio, CA (minutes from Joshua Tree NP) in the early month of May called Stagecoach. Yes, the headliners are George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, and Brooks and Dunn, but look at all the other great bands that are gonna be there! Let's call this a country/bluegrass/rock concert - Willie Nelson, Neko Case, Old 97s, Robert Earl Keen, Earl Scruggs, Nickel Creek, Yonder Mountain String Band, John Cowan Band, Emmylou Harris, Drive-By Truckers, Junior Brown, Ricky Skaggs, Doyle Lawson, Del McCoury, Bela Fleck, The Flatlanders, and Garrison Keillor to name a few. Damn, look at that line up! But, also look at that price - nearing $200 for two days. If I had the money, I'd be there. Looks like our devoted fans are going to have to post a review for us.
