In a couple of months, it will be the most wonderful time of the year. Men and women from all over the world will trade in their winter clothes for their most stylish and provocative bohemian outfits to dance the night away in a surreal fantasy land called Coachella. I have to admit, I’m not too enthusiastic for Coachella because nothing can beat last year’s amazing line-up and special guests (Pharrell, Solange, Outkast, Nas, Jay Z, Lauryn Hill, etc.). But to prepare myself for the three-day festival, I’m going to step out of my comfort zone, expand my horizon, and listen to music other than hip-hop, rap, soul, and classic soft rock. Shocking, I know.
So join me in discovering new music as I present YUPChella, a seven week musical countdown featuring artists performing at Coachella. Together, we can explore new artists, songs, and ultimately get me out of my music snobbery.
