Coachella >> Countdown + Virgin Ears Bucket List

Coachella 2013 >> will be kicking off in 1 month! On April 12th, Indio will welcome thousands and thousands of music lovers for the first weekend of the annual 3-day music and arts festival.

You've probably seen a million Tweets about the insane lineup and I'm sure you're sick of your news feed getting raped by it. So I'll spare you the synopsis on the shit ton of acts this fest boasts and leave you with just one band that has been on my radar for a long time, the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Red Hot Chili Peppers >> Coachella 2013

Red Hot Chili Peppers are definitely on my bucket list and next month my Blood Sugar Sex Magik ear cherry will finally be popped. I go to about 100 shows per year so it's absurd that in 2013 I have yet to see this first-ballot HOF band do it live.

I've been a huge fan of Anthony Kiedis and Flea for over 20 years and later I developed a profound respect for John Frusciante when I was old enough to appreciate his talent. That surfaced in 1999 with the release of Californication, my favorite RHCP album and perhaps his best work. Just throwing this out there but maybe this year's Coachella surprise will be a Chili Pepper and Frusciante reunion as the headlining act on that last day. If not, how about his return to the group in hologram form?

They have the last time slot on the last night so I'm looking forward to some big things from them to cap off the weekend and hopefully it's not in the form of their infamous cock-socks. I know Flea can still slappa da bass like a mofo jobin and Kiedis will always have an insane amount of energy. Even at 50 he still looks like he's in Point Break form so I'm sure we'll see him utilizing every inch of the stage.

I'm guessing they'll have at least 90 minutes of the bill, which isn't enough to cover all their greatness but it will do. Coachella this year is a strong lineup but RHCP make it epic. Can't wait.
