• This coming weekend, On Oct. 6, Muse, who headlined Coachella in 2010 and also played the fest in 2004, plays for NBC‘s late-night crowd.
And those are just the episodes we know about so far. If last season is any indication, there will be plenty more Coachella acts coming into your home live (well, tape-delayed for those of us on the West Coast) from New York.
Brooklyn indie band Real Estate’s 2009 debut album was never actually meant to be an album. It was just a scattered assortment of songs.
Now, their track “It’s Real” made the cut for the album that Zia Records handed out for Record Store Day.
The guidebook that accompanies the CD has a short profile of Real Estate, who made their Coachella debut this year.
“Festivals are cool because you see people you look up to just walking around,” guitarist and vocalist Martin Courtney told www.recordstoreday.com.
“Hopefully, we’ll get to see Snoop Dogg twice. I’ve been a fan of Radiohead since middle school. Girls are cool — we just played with them — and the Shins, that should be weird and cool. There’s a million bands I’ve never heard of.”

One thing Bonnaroo has that Coachella doesn’t? The Beach Boys. That’s right. The Beach Boys.
