With two straight weekends of Coachella madness in the books, it's understandable if you figured you were about to get a week off to rest and collect yourself. Understandable, but incorrect, because summer is upon us, and that means there's no stopping the steady flow of kick ass live music. This week brings L.A. everything from big name arena rock to classic gangster rap to pioneering art shows featuring world-class DJ's, so no matter what your taste is, it's a perfect week to Go See A Show!

With the first weekend of Coachella in the books already, it might be understandable to think that the music community was going into a four-day hibernation to gear up for Friday. However, Goldenvoice is instead seizing the opportunity of having so many big-name bands sticking around for the week and throwing incredible shows all over the greater L.A. area, including possibly the greatest week of shows Pomona has ever seen. We posted a thorough breakdown of Coachella-related L.A. shows when they were announced last month, and it's even more relevant today. So don't wait until the weekend, Go See A Show! MORE>>
Coachella-goers: by now, hopefully, you've got yourself together. You're dressed, ready, you've studied the setlist, maybe you're even at the gates already. But, tragic as it is to admit, you can't be everywhere at once, so you've still got some tough choices to make. Well don't worry, we cover Coachella year-round around these parts, and that means we've already prepared a day-by-day breakdown of our top picks for unmissable shows– some headliners and some more obscure.

Some good news for those of you unable to partake in either of the two back-to-back Coachella weekends next month. As of Monday, the festival's producer Goldenvoice unveiled a fully-loaded schedule of shows in the L.A. area in the days surrounding the desert music festival. They've deemed the two-week live music extravaganza "Goldenvoice Presents April 2012." Whether you're getting in on Coachella action next month or have opted out this year, if you're into this year's lineup at all, you're probably going to want to take a look at the artists they've scheduled to perform in these supplemental shows since most of them are playing the festival this year.

Goldenvoice isn't exactly going easy on us with the Day 3 lineup this year, having put together a collection of highly energetic, much anticipated acts that will challenge you to make the most of your time in the desert. Check out our preview (go HERE and HERE for our Day 1 and Day 2 analysis, respectively) of the acts we're souped for on the final day of Coachella 2012. MORE>>
In a sense, the third and final day of Coachella is the trickiest for both the schedulers and the festival-goers themselves. With two straight days of desert heat, nonstop music, killer parties, and whatever, um, extracurricular activities you may be getting into under the belt, it may feel like a challenge to maintain a third full of day of music. But Goldenvoice isn't exactly going easy on us with the Day 3 lineup this year, having put together a collection of highly energetic, much anticipated acts that will challenge you to get your weight up for one last day and make the most of your time in the desert.

Coachella is one day closer than it was yesterday! And as we continue on with our day-by-day look at some of the bands we're most excited to see (go HERE if you missed our look at Day 1), it's hard to think that anything happening between now and then could possibly live up to the awesomeness.

Holy crap, you guys, Coachella is one day closer than it was yesterday! Okay, maybe counting down to April one day at a time is slightly extreme, but as we continue on with our day-by-day look at some of the bands we're most excited to see (go HERE if you missed our look at Day 1), it's hard to think that anything happening between now and then could possibly live up to the awesomeness.
