Whatever Happened to Us Festival Stories?
You've watched some great artists and endured bad weather and bad people. (The fine line between homeless and hipster is getting thinner and thinner, and filth is only fun when you're young.) What was once an indie music fest has turned into a celebrity cesspool everyone loves to poo poo. Still, Coachella is SoCal's biggest musical event of the year. And whether you're a veteran or newbie, chances are, you have a tale to tell. It'll probably sound similar to the ones you'll be hearing at "I'm Going Somewhere With This," Josh Di Donato's comedy storytelling series, this month themed "Coachella Stories." Perhaps it was that magical moment spent watching your favorite band or those not-so-magical four hours spent trying to hail a cab with hundreds of other desert dwellers after you were left stranded without a ride. Past guests have included Margaret Cho, Laura Kightlinger, Jackie Kashian and Blaine Capatch swapping stories on topics from the holidays to the movies. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Talk About Curing Autism. If you don't show up, they'll know it's because you're still wandering the polo grounds looking for your car. With Jonah Ray (pictured).
