Oh, the poor people of Indio and the musicians who will now have to play Coachella on back-to-back weekends: the festival just announced that starting in 2012, they'll do it twice, on two consecutive weekends, just to accommodate everyone. As the website puts it: "?same lineup, same art, same place, different people." And here's the real kick in the ass: passes for 2012 go on sale this Friday. THIS FRIDAY. The downside: no one has any idea of who could be playing. The upside: layaway is available! [Coachella]
