Note on Tonight's My Bloody Valentine Show at Coachella
It's important to acknowledge that despite the scope of the Empire Polo Field, Goldenvoice has seen fit to clear a big chunk of tonight's schedule to make way for the massive sound expected for My Bloody Valentine's set. Whereas on most nights the five stages can operate simultaneously without too much worry about bleed-over -- the exception being the intrusion by Morrissey on the main stage near the close Leonard Cohen's Friday set on the neighboring Outdoor Theatre stage (but that was kinda cool, hearing Morrissey and Cohen in our head at the same time) -- tonight during My Bloody Valentine's 9 p.m. main stage slot, there is nothing on the Outdoor Stage and nothing in the Gobi tent, which is maybe the length of two football fields away.
Surely they're preparing for volume. They'd better be.
