    NEWSLETTERS

    Last year's Coachella crowd -- ready for a repeat?

    You've heard the rumors -- turns out they're true: AC/DC is back in black to headline this year's Coachella Music & Arts Festival, along with Jack White and Drake. Together with the rest of the bands (see full lineup below), they'll fill the desert valley in California with thousands of festival-goers April 10-12 and again April 17-19.

    The presale passes (last May, guys, get with it) sold-out like, whoa, but for all you hopefuls who attend massive (and massively costly) weekend-long party shows based on -- gasp! -- who's actually playing, you've still got time. Regular ticket sales Wednesday, Jan. 7, at 12 p.m. PST. Check the Coachella website for full details.

    Joining the headliners will be some local acts: A few years back, the festival tried to recruit Drive Like Jehu to perform a reunion show for a pile of money: denied! Instead, the San Diego rockers awed a packed Spreckles Organ Pavilion for a free reunion show last year. And now they're making their Coachella claim for a Saturday spot on the lineup (hopefully for a pile of money). It's all about timing, you know? Also chiming in on Saturday is San Diego-born Gaslamp Killer, a DJ and alt hip-hop producer who made a name for himself (literally) playing clubs in the Gaslamp District. Manning the turntables that same night will be the the Nortec Collective Presents: Bostiche + Fussible, who have deep Tijuana roots.

    Or maybe you can't shell out the $375 for a ticket right now. Hey, man, that's cool. You could just watch old episodes of SoundDiego (all archived on your DVR, we know), since we've had dozens of the bands on the show. You could even throw an abridged, digital Coachella party at home! Check it: In place of Fridays full set, for instance, tune in to our shows that featured Interpol, Porter Robinson, Action Bronson and Allah-Las. And who needs to stand in the Saturday afternoon heat when you could watch Alt- J, Flosstradamus, Father John Misty and Run the Jewels from the comfort of your air-conditioned living room? Your Sunday viewing pleasures, of course, include David Guetta, Fitz & the Tantrums, Vance Joy, Built to Spill, St. Lucia and the Orwells.

    It's official: festival-season fever has begun. And it's only January.
