Newsy Bits for Monday

Bonnaroo kicks Coachella's ass. Sorry for insulting your musical tastes, but I've never been a huge fan of festival shows. Maybe because I don't get high, I don't like being around people who are shrooming or dropping acid or vicodin or X, etc., and I don't believe in spending $5 on water. RHCP. Barf. Rage Against the Machine? Nothing will ever beat the time they played free at UCSD in the Price Center courtyard in anticipation of their first release. That was doubled up with an Inside Out reunion show a couple months later at the Ché Café before Zach dove head first into Rage. I can already hear the hissing when I say I was never a fan of the Police and I really only ever liked Björk in the Sugarcubes. Maybe any of my blog cred has just evaporated, but really I am just trying to make myself not care that I won't be at what is the #1 music event in Southern California. I know there will be tons of bands I'd wanna see, but I'll get over it. I'm not dropping 2 benjamins. According to the LA Times, other acts that expected in the lineup: Arcade Fire, Interpol, Willie Nelson, the Roots, Manu Chao, the Decemberists, Arctic Monkeys, Sonic Youth, Crowded House, Air, Tiësto and Kings of Leon.

Anyway, I'll let CatDirt lead your path to Coachella and I'll get on with my newsy bits.

In TV News: The CW is in discussions to keep veteran Gilmore Girls on the air for another season, and the network is high on a number of pilots in contention for next season, including a drama called Gossip Girl from the creator of The O.C., Josh Schwartz; and Wild at Heart, another drama about a New York veterinarian and his family who move to a wildlife preserve in South Africa. As for the rumors that the CW was picking up Fox's now canceled The O.C.:
"Obviously, it came up. But we really didn't think it made sense for us for several reasons," said Ostroff. "And we're excited about Josh's new show."

Also on CW

-The next cycle of America's Next Top Model will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 28 with a two-hour season-premiere.

-Midseason reality/competition Pussycat Dolls: The Search for the Next Doll will debut on Tuesday, March 6 at 9 p.m. (out of lead-in Gilmore Girls). Pussycat Dolls will pre-empt current occupant Veronica Mars for eight weeks, which will return in early May for the first of five self-contained episodes. Prospects for a fourth season of Veronica Mars will, no doubt, be heavily dependent on the ratings for these potentially final episodes. The CW is also expected to officially end veteran 7th Heaven this spring.

i HATE the Pussycat Dolls. I cannot wait for the Christina Aguilera concert to come and go just so I don't have to see that enormous billboard on the 163 south at University Ave.

**The Charlatans UK/Tim Burgess were my first "real" concert. Tim Burgess will be on Little Radio/Radio Perfik on Monday the 22nd - playing some tunes & chatting a bit...6-8pm (Pacific time) 2-4am (UK time). Listen In.

That's all for today. Peace out...
