You Too Can Be a Couchella Potato

The question is, do you want to be? Courtesy of the Art Director’s Club and Portfolio Night 11 cohorts Julie Matheny, Scott Blew, and Ivan Cash, Couchella is presumably the cheaper, safer, blander, less drug-induced, less celeb-infested, and sillier version of the Coachella music festival. Couchella’s site promotes the cyber event as an exposure outlet for musicians on the rise, but really, it’s offering itself as a curated YouTube channel of Internet music videos. Is that any different from the actual YouTube? Probably not.

If you are interested in attending (watching) online music videos in a controlled environment, you can stream Couchella live starting at noon on April 23. Bands can be nominated on the event homepage. And if you get bored of watching random music videos, you can always close your Chrome tab and go back to YouTube to watch music videos you already like.
