Teenage Fanclub @ Williamsburg Waterfront, 2010 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
As mentioned a couple times, Merge Records is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, culminating in the Merge 25 festival in Carrboro, NC from July 23 - 26. They've just released the full line-up which now includes appearances from Teenage Fanclub, Mount Moriah, William Tyler, Reigning Sound, David Kilgour & the Heavy 8s, Imperial Teen, Telekinesis, Eleanor Friedberger, Hiss Golden Messenger, Amor de Días, Saint Rich, The Music Tapes, Vertical Scratchers, Hospitality, and Mikal Cronin.
That's in addition to previously-announced performers Wye Oak, The Clientele, Destroyer, Caribou, Lambchop (performing Nixon), Neutral Milk Hotel, The Rock*A*Teens, Ex Hex, Bob Mould, The Mountain Goats, Superchunk, and The Love Language. Festival passes are sold out, but individual tickets to some of the shows are still available. Day-by-day lineups and ticket info below.
Let's hope this means Teenage Fanclub, David Kilgour, Caribou and some of the other out-of-country performers work in other dates while in the U.S. The Clientele are touring, as are the reunited The Rock*A*Teens.
