What I'm Listening To: Coachella Live and Gotye on SNL

This week I've been longing to be at the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. There's so many great bands I'd like to see like Beirut, The Hives, Andrew Bird, St. Vincent, We Were Promised Jet Packs and Florence and the Machine just to name a few. But alas, my lack of travel funds, life, and employer vacation policy have prevented me from jumping on a plane this very minute. Luckily, I've been able to catch my favorite acts live (and after the fact) thanks to the YouTube Coachella live feed (click here for the link). So far I watched Andrew Bird's set and Florence and the Machine's set live. It was wonderful, and I didn't have to camp out, I could watch it in my PJ's and my view was probably 100 times better than it would be if I was at the festival...at least that's what I keep telling myself.

Anyways, last Saturday Gotye was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live (SNL). I didn't get to catch that performance when it aired live on TV because my programming was interrupted buy the News stations telling me to take shelter from an approaching tornado, but thanks to my Hulu Plus account I was able to catch the performance a day later. If you missed the performances too, check out the video for Gotye performing "Somebody that I Used to Know" below.




There was also a hilarious SNL short of Gotye Backstage with Andy Samberg and some other guy (Taran).
