Not long after The Locust's first U.S. show in 5 years was announced via the Austin Fun Fun Fun Fest lineup, LA's FYF Fest announced that the Locus would return for their U.S. fest even sooner, a late FYF Fest lineup addition. At the moment I think those are the only two dates for the spazzy masked band who reunited for a Yeah Yeah Yeahs curated ATP in the UK in May, but more can't be far behind.
FYF Fest also just added a whole bunch of comedians to the lineup, which you can see in the updated poster above, and in list form below...
Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!
Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.
