Yesterday, April 15, is the first day of 2011 Coachella Music and Arts Festival. Now is the second day so make sure to catch it!

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, commonly known as Coachella or Coachella Festival, is a three-day (formerly a one or two-day) annual music and arts festival, organized by Goldenvoice  and held at the Empire Polo Fields in Indio, California, in the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley. The event features many genres of music including alternative rock, indie, and electronic music as well as large sculptural art. The event has several stages/tents set-up throughout the grounds, each playing live music continuously. The main stages are: Coachella Stage, Outdoor Theatre, Gobi Tent, Mojave Tent, and the Sahara Tent.

The Coachella Music Festival has a desert setting (the city of Indio is a part of the California Desert), with daytime temperatures frequently rising to over 100 °F (38 °C). The festival enjoys little cloud cover or shade. The temperature drops drastically after sunset.

The line up for this year is the best!

As I’m typing this post I am watching Arcade Fires’ last song SPRAWL II on YouTube, I love Arcade Fire so much that makes me wanna go to Coachella right now, I know I can’t. Thank you to 5 Gum for making this possible. 5 Gum, the exclusive sponsor of the Coachella live Webcast, set out to bring their fans the best music in the world.

By the way, Arcade Fire is an indie rock band based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It consists of the husband and wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, along with Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Jeremy Gara, and Sarah Neufeld. Arcade Fire came to prominence when they released their debut album Funeral in 2004 to critical acclaim. The band plays guitar, drums, bass guitar, piano, violin, viola, cello, double bass, xylophone, glockenspiel, keyboard, French horn, accordion, harp, mandolin, and hurdy-gurdy.

Their set for today consists of some of my favorites, Month of May, No cars go, Haiti, Sprawl II, etc.

Of course aside from Arcade Fire, early morning, Erykah Badus’ set is also the best! Badu was recognizable for wearing very large and colorful headwraps. For her musical sensibilities, she has often been compared to jazz great Billie Holiday. She was a core member of the Soulquarians, and is also an actress having appeared in a number of films. In case you still don’t know her, on Sesame Street, she sang “We’re All Friends” with Elmo, Baby Bear, Rosita, and Zoe.

I love her! She played all my favorites!

2 years from now I want to be in Coachella, that time would allow me to save up. :) Haha! I will surely mark my calendar when I promise this!

Since 5 Gum made possible Coachella’s webcast this year, I will surely buy one. Chos! HAHA

Sometime 2009, Quark Henares decided to upload an early cut of the trailer for their new upcoming movie Rakenrol. They don’t exactly know when it’s going to come out that time though.

I can see that it’s very raw and unpolished(if there is such a word)

April 5, 2011, Quark Henares’ much-awaited indie film ‘Rakenrol’ will finally premiere this June. The movie stars Glaiza de Castro, Jason Abalos, Ketchup Eusebio, Alwyn Uytingco and Diether Ocampo.

For Rakenrol, Jason plays the male lead character of Odie who happens to be a bass player for a rock band named Hapipaks. Glaiza de Castro, Vocals. Ketchup for Guitars, Alwyn for drums. Deither as the heartthrob rocker.

It’s 5 years in the making now. And finally, Quark Henares decided to release it.

Here’s the official trailer, come watch with me and tell me your ideas  about this indie film:

Btw,  I am going gaga about this.

Bieber Fever

Justin Bieber will have his first movie based on his own life it is since he was an adorable kid who loves to play drums. And i guess, all of his fan are going nuts over this upcoming movie (that includes me).

In the February 2011 issue, Vanity Fair interviews Justin Bieber, the 16-year-old pop sensation who idolizes the Beatles and dreams about visiting the moon.

Photographer captured JB as he plays his guitar and picnicked in the sun,

while dozens of young fans screamed.

Gaah. I am so excited with his movie. Even so with his 1st concert here in Manila. Will surely get front row tickets. :)
