What happens in Coachella doesn't stay in Coachella.

The annual Coachella Music and Art Festival in the desert outside of Indio continues to grow. Coachella, which kicks off this weekend April 12-14, is once again a two-weekend extravaganza and that means San Diego will reap some benefits.

Bands that are playing both this weekend and next need something to do during the week. So several of the big acts have booked concerts here.

Above: Franz Ferdinand perform at Humphrey's By The Bay April, 15.
