Fauxchella: Here's Where to See Coachella 2014 Bands in the Bay Area

Categories: Coachella

You can see Coachella bands without leaving the Bay Area. Yes!
You want to see a bunch of artists that are playing Coachella 2014, but not necessarily while baking under the sun near people from L.A. We are here to help, with this guide to the cornucopia of upcoming Bay Area live dates. Let us remind you that it's Jan. 10 as we write this, and much of the concert industry machinery hasn't even begun whirling at full tilt yet, so many shows/tours/albums have yet to be announced. We'll add to this as they are. Point is: if you're looking to do Coachella at home -- and without the endless lines of cars, the camping, and the crispy skin -- peruse the below.

Ty Segall is playing an extra show at Rickshaw Stop on the 26th.

Also he plays like 6 billion shows around the Bay Area a year, kind of hard to miss the guy.


Are the kids in HAIM related to Aaron Spelling or something? Because they terrible, and yet ubiquitous.

Totally doing Couchella again this year. As per usual, there are only 5 bands I want to see - The Replacements being the only one of the five I've never seen. Motorhead will play a one off in LA (be really really surprised if they didn't), I just saw the Cult but missed Pet Shop Boys so maybe we'll get lucky and get another show here.

What a about Beck, Bryan Ferry, Queens of the Stone Age or Motorhead? Never heard of most of the other bands. :P

the lineup is so poor this year - there are few bands i really want to see - the knife and queens of the stone age amd thats about it - and maybe a few of the lesser known acts id see if i had nothing to do that night and tickets are cheap.
