Steed Lord

This didn’t take long…1st Coachella 2011 prediction (read: hope/wish/dream) is  STEED LORD. So far, I can’t figure out where/when this Icelandic trio are playing (and have already been the victim of a show cancellation), but hopefully you will see me rocking out to Remember Me and New Crack City in the Sahara tent next year!

I’ve read a lot of “things to do before you die” lists, but this is the first one I am 100 percent on board with. Was surprised to find that I’ve already hit a few.  Excited to check off a few more this summer!!
