Coachella 2013: Mona Share Their ‘Can’t Miss’ Acts

Press Here

Fun fact: Nine out of every 10 good bands on the planet are playing Coachella 2013, and we’re asking some of our favorites to tell us who they’re most looking forward to checking out this weekend. (And, you know, the one after that.) Among the groups nice enough to hit us with a “Can’t Miss” list was Mona, the tatted-up, unabashedly pro-pomade Nashville-via-Ohio rockers whose retro-rock sound has already made them stars in the U.K.

While the members of Mona say they’re gunning to see as many bands as possible, bassist Zach Lindsey tells he’s especially psyched about the five below. Check out his picks and rationale for each, and keep an eye out for Mona’s still-in-the-works sophomore album, which is due to include ‘Goons,’ a brand-new single the band discussed in a behind-the-scenes video we premiered earlier this month right here at





Classic Southern California punk rock innovators, and they always put on a great show.





These guys are what every power duo should want to be: loud, heavy and catchy.


Violent Femmes


Regardless of what is cool at the moment, they always fit right in.


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs


Always entertaining on and offstage, they never stop evolving.


The Gaslight Anthem


Great band and cool people. They always put on a badass show.
