Above: Live stream of LA Times Brand X Coachella webcast at Coachella Oasis.
Hello from the Coachella Oasis (at Merv Griffin's estate), where I'm hosting a weekend-long webcast with the LA Times/Brand X. I'm here with Richard Metzger of Brand X and Dangerous Minds. From about 12-5 today and Sunday, artists performing at Coachella will be dropping by, and I'll be taking your questions and streaming video live all weekend. Here's the Ustream link.
Deejays will be spinning live all day today. First up is Rick Rude. Then, DJ Spider, DJ Edski, Seth Cohen, Gaslamp Killer, then Nosaj Thing. We're also expecting a number of artists on the The Coachella festival lineup to stop by. This year's roster includes Gary Numan, Jay-Z, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem, PiL, The Specials, Echo and the Bunnymen, Them Crooked Vultures, MGMT, Die Antwoord, Thom Yorke, Tiësto, Imogen Heap, Major Lazer, Faith No More, Benny Benassi, Hot Chip, DEVO, Sly Stone, Mike Snow, David Guetta, King Khan & the Shrines, Aterciopelados... and many others.
