Coachella 2011 is already sold out — and tickets are being scalped on Craigslist. Yikes.

Good luck if you wanted to attend this year’s  Coachella Festival, April 15-17th,  in Indio, California.    OR I suppose you still can, if you wanna risk your life and wallet by dealing with some of the fine folks advertising their wares on Craigslist.   ( Someone in Seattle is selling two tickets for the 3-day pass for $1100, I see.  Clearly, they aren’t the VIP tickets.)

I’m scared of  the Craigslist.  Way too many real-life tragedies-turned into TV movies about the creepers (read: KILLERS) on that website.  Sorry, but someone had to say it.  Oh, I’ll buy just about anything on ebay (okay, mostly SHOES), but that’s because I don’t have to deal with anyone face-to-face.

It’s pretty amazing how this year’s tickets to Coachella sold out at a far faster pace than years previous:

“Promoter Paul Tollett of the Los Angeles-based Goldenvoice said he’s “still a little stunned” by the quick sellout. Some online fans reacted negatively when the lineup — headlined by returning artists Arcade Fire, Kings of Leon and Kanye West — was announced after 9 p.m. on Jan. 18.Tollett said 51,000 tickets were sold by Monday compared to the 11,000 purchased on the first weekend of sale last year.

There was a quick succession of sellouts of car camping, tent camping and VIP tickets, but he said he’s never announced tickets were going fast for fear it would seem like a sales trick.”

You know what?  Even at a much younger age, I wouldn’t have enjoyed this kind of atmosphere.  I do enjoy a fairly clean bathroom, and private showers.  And a bed.  Without a zillion nuts parading about.  Yep.  I was an old biddy then…and I’ve only gotten worse.

So, yeah.  Coachella’s sold out,  I don’t care for the Craigslist  and I’m a biddy.  That’s about it.

Bonnaroo 2010 Lineup. I can’t. I just can’t.

No, thank you.

Oh, it’s OFFICIAL.   I’m an old biddy.  Who are these people?  My theory is that most of the hipsters who attend Bonnaroo don’t know who’s performing either–they just won’t admit it, because they’re wasted and snootier-than-thou.   I’d rather go to the sweatbox known as Coachella, where I at least KNOW who’s playing, forpitysake.

Okay, so I know maybe ten to twelve of the acts.  Big deal.   Do y’all even KNOW how un-hygienic this festival is?  I thought it was bad when I had to stand in a full inch of urine by the Honey Buckets at the KING DOME in Seattle during a 10-hour concert back in the day.  (Loverboy, bitches!!)   If you wanna know just how nast Bonnaroo is, go ahead.  Spend the money and try it out.

Bonnaroo, y'all.

Oh, and after waaaay too much research, I’ve discovered that’s not just MUD in which they are wrestling. Just so ya know.
