For those of you not attending Coachella, have no fear. You can still have a weekend of music and art.
The Crosby is having an event Thursday (tonight) through Saturday called The Better Coachella (not too sure on the 'better' aspect, but better than nothing.)
Thursday is SHIFT with Rhettmatic (of the legendary Beat Junkies) and Plann B. Expect to hear some great hip hop and soul tunes along with amazing turntablist skills.
Friday night is Obey Radio with Roam & Urth headlining. Cut Chemist's Brother is announced to play too. I'm not sure if that literally means the brother of legendary DJ Cut Chemist, or if that is some dude's stage name. You'll just have to go and see. I won't be there of course, I'll be at the real Coachella.
Saturday night is Cig and Swigs night with TVD & TSC-1, from Stussy, headlining.
If you're not heading out to Indio for Coachella, head out to the Crosby at 400 N. Broadway, Santa Ana for a different weekend of music and art.
