Written by

We’re in between Coachella Weekends once again and to celebrate we feature worthy artists performing at the festival this year.  First up, from East LA, we turn to a little reggae from The Delireans. We’ve got 2 separate tracks from Portugal. The Man and Cuco, if you miss them at Coachella you’ll find them at The Shrine in August and at FYF Festival. Rolling Blackout Coast Fever play The Echo in between their Sunday spots at Coachella. And, last, it’s 4.20, so we’ll “Burn One” with the master of positive vibes, Rocky Dawuni.

Tuesday, April 17 Portugal. The Man “So Young”

Portugal. The Man are no strangers to festival stages and their latest album Woodstock is full of summer-ready jams; in fact, the title of the album was inspired by founder John Gourley’s dad’s ticket stub to the famed 60’s festival. Check out “So Young” co-written with Danger Mouse.

Wednesday, April 18 Cuco “Lo Que Siento”

Hawthorne, CA based Cuco got major props at SXSW this year. After a stint at our home base of Santa Monica College, he began to pursue music in earnest. The moniker of 19-year-old Omar Banos steers his work toward the dream-pop side, incorporating lovelorn ‘Spanglish’ lyrics into the mix. Check out why he’s become a Chicano heartthrob by listening to “Lo Que Siento.”
