Some things about Coachella are obvious. The headliners deliver, and this year they're particularly pro: rap's Warren Buffett, Jay-Z, and stadium rock saviors Muse, pictured, plus the multimedia blitz of Gorillaz. The bill's middle is packed with great stuff that you will miss because you're standing in line to recycle your water bottles. One night, you will happen upon a mostly empty tent and from it will pour music that changes your life. As for specifics, here are five on this year's thick lineup that I wouldn't miss.
[For the record: An earlier version of this online gallery included singer Janelle Monae as one of the acts not to miss. Monae, however, is not part of this year's Coachella lineup. Read more at the Pop & Hiss blog. ]
