On the main stage before the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, a long commercial for their new album played, and then we found out that members of the d ... More >>
NEW ORDER @ COACHELLA | 4/13/13 While over at the main stage the bulk of the Coachella crowd was enduring Phoenix with the hope that Daft Punk would come out -- they instead got R.

We don't know much about ROM. We know we've been seeing stickers around town, which is what made us to look it up in the first place, and now we know there's a Kickstarter project trying to fund a flexi disc.
