So there you have it. For those who don't know, Coachella is a gigantic alt-indie music festival in the Southern California desert that features huge acts like Radiohead and Dr. Dre along with hip but lesser-known artists like St. Vincent and Wild Beasts. Not only was Polamalu there, he ended up on stage with Girl Talk. If Polamalu wasn't already hipsters' favorite Steeler, he certainly is now.
