San Diego Arts Roundup: Ron English, Earth Day, and Coachella
Monday, April 19, 2010
Coverage of Coachella is, not surprisingly, everywhere. The U-T sent George Varga and Derrik Chin. The LA Times' Pop and Hiss blog has some good stuff (cheap eyewear!). Chris Nixon from SDNN documented his weekend in the desert. Chris Cantore and NBC bloggers have pics and video. And 94.9 has a Coachella blog and TONS of pics.
Check out Mick O's Coachella pics on Flickr - good stuff.
