Blog #349, CALVIN HARRIS

WARDEN TRACKS:  This weekend and next, is the annual COACHELLA Valley Arts & Music Festival in California.  As usual, the lineup for one of the world’s biggest annual parties is eclectic, stellar, even generation-gap bridging… call it what you will.  One of the many highlights is the so-called “reunion” of GUNS N’ ROSES, but the festival in the desert has so much more for visitors to wrap their senses around.  The LA Times offers a good look at many of the incredible performances & events & tons more to check out, along with official live streaming channels if you can’t make it to Indio, CA.  Another highly anticipated reunion at Coachella 2016 is that of New York City’s LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, and there are so many more wicked artists including VOLBEAT, CHVRCHES, SILVERSUN PICKUPS, ICE CUBE, RANCID, ST. GERMAIN, THE HEAVY, COLD WAR KIDS, SIA, UNDERWORLD, PETE YORN, A$AP ROCKY, JACK U; the list goes on and on.  One uber-huge name, whose star seems to be steadily rising, is globally popular producer / DJ, CALVIN HARRIS, and this weekend’s feature track is with UMMET OZCAN, it’s called “OVERDRIVE.”  This makes me wanna hit the highway, turn the volume up, and drive really fast to the California desert; in a “wish I was a super-spy” kind of way.
