Coachella Is So Popular, They’re Probably Expanding To The Fall

first_imgRegardless of your musical preferences, most everyone is familiar with Coachella. The annual event has become a mainstay in the festival circuit, attracting so many fans that they added a second weekend back in 2012, and haven’t looked back since. In fact, according to a new report, they’re looking forward at a third Coachella event to be held in the fall.According to the Phoenix Desert Sun, Coachella promoters Goldenvoice have an agreement with the city of Indio, CA to hold up to five events there, annually. Between the two Coachella weekends and Stagecoach Country Music Festival, there’s still room for two more events on the calendar. Those two events could be the fall counterparts to Coachella and Stagecoach, if all goes to plan.The report says that “significant progress” has been made on the additional events, with the city eager to expand its reputation as “The City of Festivals.” According to Indio mayor Glenn Miller, “It brings a different group into the community that wouldn’t be here in the summer heat, so it brings in money, business and jobs to the city.”Considering the estimated $1.4 million that each festival brings to the town, it seems quite reasonable to believe that more Coachellas are coming to Indio soon. Not to mention the Panorama Festival event that Goldenvoice is bringing to New York, NY. Good festival tidings are ahead.This year’s Coachella boasts a lineup with Guns N Roses, LCD Soundsystem and Calvin Harris at the top.[Via The Desert Sun]last_img read more

West Genesee baseball wins series with Baldwinsville

first_imgThough it took two weeks, the West Genesee baseball team was able to claim its series against Baldwinsville, a big boost before heading into the Section III Class AA playoffs.Back when the series started, darkness halted the first game when it was 4-4 in the 12th inning, with another game rained out and a third claimed by the Wildcats in nine innings.Now, on May 19, the tie game was completed, and B’ville, with a run in the top of the 12th, defeated WG 5-4, the first time this season the Wildcats had lost an extra-inning decision. Far from all this, Solvay and Marcellus picked up wins on Tuesday before the sectional playoff brackets were announced.The Bearcats conquered Altmar-Parish-Williamstown 7-2, briefly falling behind 2-1 in the top of the third inning but answering with two runs of its own in the bottom of the third and then scoring three times an inning later.Marcellus earned more than twice that total at the plate in a 17-5 victory over Chittenango, needing only five innings to evoke the mercy rule as it scored three times in the first inning and batted around in the top of the second, netting eight runs.More would follow as Jack Flynn, with a triple, two singles, four runs scored and two RBIs, led the way. Aiden Shea, Brody Shanahan and Ryan Worden had two hits apiece, Shea and Jared Sammon driving in two runs as Jacob Walters scored a pair of runs.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story But when the third game of the series took place right after, WG rallied to win, 4-2, and claim the series over a B’ville side that had risen to no. 3 in the state AA rankings.After allowing a pair of first-inning runs, the Wildcats’ pitchers blanked the Bees the rest of the way, Jack Gordon going 3 1/3 innings and Sam Gallager the remaining 3 2/3 innings in relief, combining to limit B’ville to four hits.A run in the first inning got WG on the board, but it waited until the bottom of the fifth to tag Bees pitcher Chris AuClair for three decisive runs, two of them driven in by Chris Bonacci as Jake DePalma and R.J. Murphy also got RBIs and Tyler Kensey had two hits.center_img Tags: BaseballMarcellusSolvayWest Geneseelast_img read more
