It's just fun because you refer to noodly, ponderous and oft-sleep inducing jambands as "raging," while much of the music that you deride as soft/weak/whatever-faux-hippie-slang exists-for-such-thing is at least the same. I'd say Tom Petty "rages" about as hard as Phoenix. Hell, probably even less - dude is the patron saint of lite FM radio - the prince of dad rock. But whatever.
If you're going to Coachella for 90's goth stuff, you're not going to be very happy this year. That's all I'll say there.
I'm going to Coachella for variety and to see tons of bands I've never seen before. I've seen hundreds of bands of every genre, I've seen way too many amazing shows to be content with settling for less.
Sorry you've never seen Tom Petty, he puts on a great rock n roll show.
