Justin Bieber isn't performing at the Coachella Valley Music and Festival. Reunited alt-rock band Lush couldn't make it for the first weekend because of visa issues. But both artists still had successful Coachella weekends by at least one metric: the performance of their work at the on-site record store.
The shop, run by promoter Goldenvoice for the third consecutive year, is heavily-curated mix of oddities and rarities. Check, for instance, a section devoted to records with animals on the cover (see Steppenwolf's "Sixteen Great Performances," or the "Looney Tunes" collection "I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Cat"), or browse a collection of vinyl devoted to "role models."
What constitutes a "role model"? Albums from Bruce Willis and '70s sitcom "Laverne & Shirley" made the cut.
