Phoenix at MSG in 2010 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Phoenix

First, Phoenix announced that their long awaited followup to 2009's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix would be out this April, then they revealed that it's called Bankrupt! and made their first North American show announcement of 2013: New Orleans Jazz Festival. They've since been revealed as a Coachella headliner and now they've got even more North American dates scheduled, including one that's not too far from NYC: Columbia, MD's Sweetlife Festival, which goes down at Merriweather Post Pavillion on May 11 (about a 3 and a half hour drive from NYC). Their schedule currently has a week or so free on either side of of the Sweetlife fest...hmm.

And the rest of Sweetlife lineup ain't too shabby either. Joining Phoenix will be Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Solange, Youth Lagoon, Holy Ghost!, Gary Clark Jr, MS MR, and more. Tickets for the festival go on sale Friday (2/8) at 10 AM with a presale beginning on Wednesday (2/6).

The full lineup and announcement video for Sweetlife, and a list of all Phoenix dates below...

HA HA 3 and 1/2 hours away! Never drive down the turnpike? This will take you 5 -6 hours!

3.5 hours if you leave in the middle of the night, or take Amtrak.

^Yeah exactly

These festivals are getting ridiculous and stupid. Way too many!

RAVENS!

yeah it is just the same shit over and over again... so maybe report on one of them once... but how news worthy is it if the same fucking line up repeats itself across 40 festivals over the summer

BORING even if you like all of these bands

What are we thinking for Phoenix NYC shows? Are they bold enough to try MSG again?

I'm from Columbia - it's 3.5, you babies!

The people at MDF will beat up all the losers at this event and then ravage all the arty-nerd 15 year olds left over.

^I live in Baltimore and MDF is the worst. For a week afterwards the city smells like Hot Pockets. I wish they would move it somewhere else.

It's just that all these festivals are so freaking safe and cater to 1)Brahs and/or 2)EDM

The last festival lineup that was halfway good was Outside Lands last year.

So I guess Phoenix isn't playing Governors Ball?

"I live in Baltimore and MDF is the worst. For a week afterwards the city smells like Hot Pockets. I wish they would move it somewhere else."

Considering you live in BALTIMORE, of all god forsaken places, MDF is hardly the worst thing to be happening there, amongst all the other loveliness going on on a regular basis.

That, or you don't actually live in Baltimore and are just pulling a dumb hipster ploy.

Somebody watched the Wire.

You know these fests are getting lamer when Solange is playing them. Passion pit and Phoenix are the headliners? How awful!

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 2:54 PM

Nope, MDF and the resulting Hot Pocket smell is the worst thing about BMore.

what is mdf?

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 3:05 PM

Mostly Dick Festival

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 3:27 PM

Def playing Barclays

I bet people from Baltimore don't even call it BMore.

And the worst thing about "BMore" is the scarf population. Yes, even worse than all the rampant crime and drugs (and Hitler, too).

Lol, this shit looks like something that would be on Regular Show as a joke.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 10:01 PM

I did this drive dozens of times and I would say maybe 2 times it too me 4 hours or less.

Posted by Amanda | February 6, 2013 9:43 PM

Jazz festivals are the great! I've recently gone to one and I've come back another man. It's a music that transcends the ordinary, making you superior to the other human beings.

I like how the part of the video announcing Lindsey Stirling was just a goose walking around. It seemed oddly fitting for some reason.
