TVD’s The Idelic Hour with Jon Sidel

Greetings from Laurel Canyon!

Oh help me Jesus / Come through this storm / I had to lose her / To do her harm / I heard her holler / I heard her moan / My lovely daughter / I took her home / Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water. / Come back here, man, gimme my daughter. / Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water. / Come back here, man, gimme my daughter.

For years The Idelic Hour has featured a Coachella inspired setlist for the drive out to Indio. Coachella, the grandaddy of California music festivals, begins today. I wouldn’t want to poop a party, so I won’t.

Between and before Eminem and Beyonce there are a dozen or so well-selected young rock bands playing Indio over the next two weeks. Thee Oh Sees, Cherry Glazerr, Snail Mail, The Drums, Goat Girl, War On Drugs, and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever to name a few.

I won’t be making the scene this year due to a couple of pressing engagements. Over coffee yesterday morning, A trusted friend told me how this year’s SXSW music conference in Austin was the best in many years. “Inspiring” was the description. He did point out, he believed that music has lost the cultural relevance it had in ’60s or in the days of Kurt Cobain. Now it’s Trump and Kardashians. (Oh dear!)

Well OK, so why can’t Coachella 2018 be masterpiece? Please do drink lots of water, re-apply sunblock—and report back.
