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.

As Alex observed earlier today, the calendar above reads like a club sandwich (or whatever triple-decker sandwich you fancy) with shows scheduled before Weekend 1 on April 11th and 12th, in between Weekends 1 and 2 from April 16th-19th, and after Weekend 2 on April 23rd. Let's break these down by day to establish which artists indicated above are playing the festival, which aren't, when tickets to these shows are available, and which ones I'd most like to see (not that you care) so we can help you prioritize.
On an unrelated note, I'd like congratulate Goldenvoice for only having 3 typos (at least by my count) on the above flyer.
