On Friday night, our traveling photo booth made an appearance at DNA Lounge, where the Hubba Hubba Revue was staging a sexy coup d'etat during a celebration in honor of vile dictator Presidente Juan Baptista Maximilian "Little Bobo"

Kingfish (pictured above), and his military strongmen.

Our photographers Mike and Jen Cash report that the fiesta got hot early on, with burlesque performances by

Kiki Bomb, The Twilight Vixen Revue, Bunny Pistol, and more. With tequila, cigars, gun-toting senoritas and free mustache rides, El Presidente has outdone himself yet again. See our Viva la Revolucion photo set here.

Saturday morning took us (and dozens of dogs) to Duboce Park for DogFest 2009, where pups and veterans competed for best jump, best bark and most "ear-resistible" as kids and their parents looked on. See Hanna Quevedo's colorful photo set here.

Gordie Young was going to review Morrissey's Saturday Paramount set for us, but that was canceled when the Moz called in sick -- apparently the smell of grilled meat on the breeze at Coachella was a bit much for his delicate sensibilities. We would be more forgiving if Mr. M wasn't spotted at the DNA Lounge in perfect health that very same evening.

Coachella took Indio, CA by storm Friday through Sunday. See our photos from Day 1, Day 2 and the obligatory Half-Dressed People & Scenes from the Desert slideshow.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
