Bizarro-universe Coachella features cast of 'The Golden Girls,' Gotye doing Police covers

Coachella schedule
As the lineup for this year's Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival made the rounds last week, sparking all sorts of discussion about who The Stone Roses areso too, did a far stranger Coachella lineup. Made by Dan Faughnder of the local band Sledding With Tigers, this bizarro-universe version of Coachella (see left) will feature a Civil War reenactment, a live taping of Maury and an appearance from the surviving cast of the sitcom The Golden Girls. Also, Gotye, Bruno Mars and GWAR will do sets of Police cover songs. Sounds like a blast! 

Pick up next week's issue of CityBeat to read more about Faughnder's Coachella.
