It is with great pleasure that I present to you...
The 2012 Huichica Music Festival
Gundlach Bundschu Winery
June 1-2, 2012
Jeff Bundschu and Eric Johnson have been hard at work (along with a whole slew of other folks) to bring you an even bigger and better festival this year. I'll let you head on over to the Huichica website for all of the nitty gritty details. Tickets are on sale now.
I plan to sprinkle a song from the line-up of Huichica bands each week as a bonus to my usual five songs in our Music Monday playlist. I've also put together a Spotify playlist that showcases a few of the bands.
And speaking of music festivals/gatherings:
SXSW - Austin, Texas - March 13-18:
- In my fantasyland where I have infinite sums of money at my disposal and no parenting responsibilities, I am attending SXSW next week. I hope to see you there.
- Here's a mind-boggling list of bands slated to be there.
- This is another great resource to help you get the most out of the experience.
- Secret SXSW Springsteen show? Yes please! And speaking of Springsteen...
Coachella - Indio, California - April 13-15 & April 20-22:
- First time ever that this event will be held over two weekends.
- Within three hours of the on-sale, both weekends sold out.
- Radiohead! Nuff said.
- If you're in LA, many of the bands will be performing locally in between the two weekends.

Listen to the 2011 Music Monday Playlist here.
I had a very long week (me + chaperoning junior high school regional honor choir + Reno, Nevada) so you'll have to excuse the lack of information behind my music selections this week.
"Every Little Thing" - Soft Swells
"Is It Alright" - Mikal Cronin
"Safe and Sound" - Capital Cities
"Old Pine" - Ben Howard
"Tourists" - Bright Moments
Huichica 2012 Bonus: "Skinnybone" - Sea of Bees
P.S. - As an experiment, I am embedding our playlist via Everyone's Mixtape below to see if it comes through in the email version of this post. Sorry if there is just a blank space here:
