David Bruno is DJing at Finger on the Pulse at Royal Oak in Brooklyn tonight (1/26)



Its really, really cold out.

DigitalismThe only thing getting me through this crap is dreaming of Miami and Coachella in the coming months, that and the dancing.

The obvious big rock reunions aside, there is some pretty sick dance talent among the roster for the lovefest in the desert.

Before I highlight my top picks, I want to shed some light on why I love going out to Coachella. It is hot (hot as fuk), tough to get drunk, and your cell phone probably won't work; but when the sun starts to set and you stand in the middle of that field with 60,000 other people trying to decide if you want to see a rock god under the stars or a dude in a tent fiddle with a laptop: that's the real deal. That's why I love music.

Top 3 (Dance) Reasons To Go To Coachella

JusticeIf you didn't see Justice at Studio B in the past year, you've heard about it.

Yes, you could catch them here in NYC, but multiply the chaos in Greenpoint by a billionty, add about 58,200 people, a desert, and you've got yourself a really unique experience. Maybe a New Rave rave?

Not convinced? Maybe these other artists alsp playing Coachella will get you dancing in the desert: DJ Shadow, Tiesto, LCD Soundsystem, !!!, MSTRKRFT, Girl Talk, Mike Relm, Richie Hawtin, Spank Rock, Junior Boys, Hot Chip, The Rapture, Klaxons, Paul van Dyk, and Teddybears. I also heard Erol Alkan, but can't seem to find him on the flyer.



People: don't forget to dance. It will keep you warm.
