Coachella Music Festival has gone through its growth spurt and has officially become a reason for music-lovers from across the country to endure the blistering heat of Palm Desert, CA. A music festival with a range of performers like this year's headliner Kanye West, under-the-radar bands like Freelance Whales, and everyone in between (Scissor Sisters, New Pornographers), Coachella is a weekend-long hipster (oh, and music) paradise. The Los Angeles Times announced the Coachella 2011 lineup late in the day on Tuesday, so we combed through it and chose ten bands we'd fly 3,000 miles to see. Leave your favorites in the comments.
