Every Spring we venture to Palm Springs for week in the desert. I take in the sun, enjoy the pool with Isabel, Sasha, my husband and friends to relax. And always, my husband and I attend the Coachella Music and Arts Festival. To me, it’s just “Coachella”. We’ve been going for eight years, nearly since its start and I’m amazed at how it’s grown in popularity. And why not. The weather is usually perfect and the music is always amazing.
I’ve seen so many bands at Coachella. A quick list of faves over the years — Oasis, Radiohead, Roger Waters, Paul McCartney, The Cure, Chemical Brothers, Black Keys, Muse, Gorillaz, Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire, Bjork, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, TV On The Radio, COLDPLAY, Snow Patrol, Nine Inch Nails, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, Florence and the Machine, Daft Punk, The Killers, Calexico, Silver Sun Pickups, Jimmy Cliff, and so many more.
And my favorite this year? Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
I love music. Like, reeaaaally love music. My husband (the musician) loves music. And my girls love music. We sing. We dance. We play instruments. And, we listen… together.
Music feeds my mind, my soul and my heart.
I hope Bari, a gorgeous mom-to-be I spotted with her husband at Coachella, has the same experience with her family…taking it all in… enjoying the music.
