Note to self: Come up with a band name that people can easily find searching. I’m looking at you, “Cassy” and “Stars.”
P.S. Shout out to the person who decided “Little Green Cars” and “Mord Fustang” should be placed next to each other on the poster.
Newt Gingrich is marketing himself to Coachella fans.
A promoted (read: paid) tweet from the Republican presidential candidate appears atop search results for the hashtag #coachella2012.
I launched into the search results from a tweet that Desert Sun Executive Editor Greg Burton sent, linking to our post about Cat Power canceling her Coachella appearance, and there was Gingrich, talking about Mitt Romney and Barack Obama instead of the Black Keys or Radiohead:
I’ve left a message with Gingrich’s campaign staff hoping to find out more about the Coachella-based marketing move … and whether we can expect to see the candidate at Coachella this April.
Gingrich isn’t the first GOP presidential hopeful to be linked to this year’s Coachella fest. A rumor circulated last month that Ron Paul scooped up all the available Coachella tickets and planned to use them to win over young voters.
That story had some serious holes in it, though. For one, Paul reportedly got those tickets from local congressman Jerry Lewis, whose spokesman said the lawmaker hadn’t hoarded any festival tickets — or ever attended Coachella.
