Coachella, one of America's most prominent destination festivals, announced their 2015 line-up early this afternoon. The headliners for the festival are AC/DC, Jack White and rap cherub Drake. Those folks are all well and good, but that's not exactly why we're here telling you an event that takes place all the way out in California. We're here to tell you with an insurmountable amount of glee that a few local acts (or in some cases acts with strong local ties) have secured spots on the bill.

Psychobilly act and Dallas mainstay Reverend Horton Heat (who also happens to be one of the driving forces between Deep Ellum's annual Elm St. Music and Tattoo Festival) are scheduled to play on Friday at both festival weekends, which happen every April out in Indio, California. In addition to the Reverend, garage rock outfit Parquet Courts and St. Vincent (both now of Brooklyn, but hailing originally from North Texas) will appear on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Parquet Courts and St. Vincent aren't particularly surprising on the bill, as they've garnered a good deal of eyes and ears through things like late night talk show appearances and Saturday Night Live performances. Reverend Horton Heat's inclusion is a bit of a surprise because they're a relatively niche outfit, and not particularly what you'd expect when thinking of a Coachella lineup. But then anybody that's seen the band's energetic scorcher of a live show knows that they'll put on a great performance for the young'uns tripping balls on psychedelics this spring.

Coachella takes place over two weekends, April 10-12 and April 17-19. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon PST at www.coachella.com. (Standard general admission passes are already sold out.) You, too, can be a part of the fun for the low, low price of $435 per weekend pass. Start your budgeting now!
