Let the cursing of Coachella continue!

It’s that time of year again.  In case you haven’t seen it on your news feed yet, the official Coachella lineup has been released.  And if you missed the smaller print (I did the first time), Childish Gambino’s on it.  While you lament the unavailability of Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, Florence + the Machine and the like, feel free to indulge in a guilt-free “we win!” moment: the Black Keys and Snoop Dogg both played Spring Weekend ’10 (and Santigold graced the Main Green in ’09) prior to their headlining gigs.

Now, all that’s left for us is to do is cross our fingers and hope for a Christmas Holiday BCA miracle – Mumford & Sons and Kid Cudi, the top two results of BCA’s poll, are absent from the lineup. If all else fails, BlueIvy Carter for Spring Weekend 2012, anyone?

You can check the full poster after the jump (assuming you haven’t already seen it all over Facebook).
