Not only are Marina and the Diamonds playing Coachella, they will be touring with Katy Perry this summer.

Killing time Maybe it’s because I’m lamenting the delay of Mad Men. Maybe it’s because I’m jonesing for Breaking Bad. But AMC’s latest show, The Killing, has become my newest obsession. Twin Peaks 2.0, anyone? — Ken Miller, associate editor

Sour note We love failure in Clark County, which is why we as voters have chosen to take out one of our few success stories: Clark County School District’s prized music program, one of the best in the nation. — Kristen Peterson, staff writer

Stars and struts Marina and the Diamonds’ Welsh frontwoman didn’t just belt out tunes and show off dramatic choreography while playing at Cosmo’s Book & Stage last weekend. She also performed her hit “Hollywood” in a sequined, American-flag romper. Color me jealous. — Sarah Feldberg, editor

Back into storage Warm weather returns to Vegas, meaning my boots must go into hibernation. Ten-dollar grey clearance boots I bought at the Boulevard Mall, I will miss you dearly. — April Corbin, web content editor

Budding star I taped the first radio segment of my young career in media on Tuesday. It was fun, but didn’t video kill the radio star? Hey, Andy Cooper, need a wingman? — Mark Adams, listings coordinator
