Music Festival, taking place May 27th - 30th, with over 120 artists including performances by The Cure, Florence & The Machine, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Alabama Shakes, A$AP Rocky, Sufjan Stevens, M83, Grimes, Chet Faker, and Jamie xx. Created by Adam Zacks in 2002, the festival's stellar lineups have featured a blend of established and emerging artists at the stunning Gorge Amphitheatre set atop the cliffs overlooking the Columbia River, making this festival an international destination as well as a uniquely Pacific Northwest mainstay. Tickets to the 2016 Sasquatch! Music Festival will go on sale Tuesday, January 12 at 10 a.m. (PST) at SasquatchFestival.comCo-headliner Florence & The Machine was also announced on Shaky Knees today too, and just announced a tour with Grimes.

The Governors Ball Music Festival, which happens June 3-5 at Randall's Island Park in NYC, has announced it's 2016 lineup which includes headliners Kanye West, the Strokes, and The Killers, plus Beck, Robyn, Death Cab for Cutie, M83, Haim, Chvrches, Father John Misty, Eagles of Death Metal, Purity Ring, Courtney Barnett, Jamie xx, Miike Snow, Bloc Party, Miguel, Big Grams, Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, De La Soul, Vince Staples, Against Me!, Bat for Lashes, Thundercat, Torres, Bully and more. Full lineup is listed below.
That'll make the second time that both The Strokes and Kanye West headline Governors Ball. Last time Kanye headlined, he debuted about half of his then-still-unreleased Yeezus, and he's got a new album on the way this year too. The Strokes have also said they're in the studio (though a new Strokes album is probably a lot less exciting than a new Kanye album).
Tickets are on sale now.

Big Grams, aka the collaborative duo of OutKast's Big Boi and Phantogram, played a one-off in NYC at Irving Plaza last night (12/21). They played every song on their seven-song EP, all three Phantogram collaborations on Big Boi's Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors album ("Objectum Sexuality," "CPU" and "Lines"), and they mashed up two OutKast and two Phantogram songs: "Ms. Jackson" with "Mouthful of Diamonds" and "The Way You Move" and "Don't Move."
Go Dreamer opened the show. More pictures and the full setlist below...

A few years back, OutKast's Big Boi invited Phantogram to contribute to three tracks on his 2012 album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors (including the especially great "Lines," which also features A$AP Rocky), and their creative relationship eventually led to the full-blown collaborative project Big Grams. They recently released their 7-song self-titled EP, which was produced almost entirely by Phantogram except "Put It On Her" by 9th Wonder and "Drum Machine" by Skrillex, and Big Boi's pals Run the Jewels show up on "Born to Shine." You can check out the video for "Fell in the Sun" and a Spoitfy stream of the whole EP below.
Big Grams have announced some festival appearances for 2016, including Hangout, but before that they'll play a club show at NYC's Irving Plaza on December 21. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (11/20) at 10 AM with Live Nation/Music Geeks presales starting Thursday (11/19) at 10 AM.

The Weeknd / Vic Mensa / crowd
Sweetlife Festival went down this past weekend at Columbia, MD's Merriweather Post Pavillion. We already posted day 1 pictures of Billy Idol, Kendrick Lamar and more. Now we've got a set of day 2 pictures, including shots of The Weeknd, Vic Mensa, Banks, Phantogram, San Fermin, Charli XCX, Raury and more.
TV on the Radio have released a video for their song "Trouble," from last year's very good Seeds LP. It was directed by frontman Tunde Adebimpe who filmed people on the street in Los Angeles (where he lives now). He told Time, "We got some people together, some of whom we ran into on the street while we were shooting, and did that. We asked if they could quietly (or not) go to brighter or darker places inside themselves let us be there with them for a little while. Everyone's sifting through something, right?" You can check out the "Trouble" video below.
Tunde has also recorded a song titled "Speedline Miracle Masterpiece" which is a collaboration with Sinkane and Sal P. It's one of many genre-crossing songs recorded for that GTA V "soundtrack," The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos which will be released on April 14. Other artists involved on in include Earl Sweatshirt, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs, Popcaan, Killer Mike and Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring. You can stream "Speedline Miracle Masterpiece" below.
TVOTR will be in the NYC-area next month, playing Brooklyn's Kings Theatre on May 20 with Bo Ningen (tickets), and then the BrooklynVegan-presented show on May 23 at Stone Pony Summerstage with Pixies and John Grant (tickets).
The Sweetlife Festival comes to Columbia, MD's Merriweather Post Pavillion on May 30-31 with a lineup of Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd, Pixies, Billy Idol, Phantogram, Charli XCX, Lucius, Vic Mensa, SZA, Raury, Sinkane, San Fermin, Goldlink, Bishop Nehru and more. Tickets are on sale now.

Alt-J @ MSG - 3/30/15 (via @ld125)
Seamy guitar distortion starts early and coils in intensity; by the set closer The Gospel of John Hurt, this year's loveliest ballad about chest-bursting aliens, it is marrow-rattling, offset by fills from the slily inventive drummer Thom Green. An encore spin through Bill Withers's Lovely Day is a methodical, proggy deconstruction with arrestingly forlorn crests.Alt-J came to NYC this week for their largest headlining show here yet, selling out Madison Square Garden on Monday (3/30), less than three years after their NYC debut at Mercury Lounge. We got almost all of both of their albums, including their cover of Bill Withers' "Lovely Day" that appears as a hidden track at the end of This Is All Yours. Were you at the show? How was it? Full setlist below.
More than anything, the fits of audience singalongs are a marvel to behold. Newman's most hair-raising sexual solicitations ("Turn you inside out and lick you like a crisp packet," "Till morning comes, let's tessellate") are howled back at him by the whole, huge room. It's an oddly inspiring dialogue inside Alt-J's larger victory at the Garden - a night that should ensure there are more stadiums full of misfits in their future. [The Guardian]
While they were in NYC, Alt-J also stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to play "Every Other Freckle." And they've since added several more North American dates running through mid-October (nothing else in NYC yet). All dates are listed, with that Fallon video, below.
Opening the MSG show was Phantogram, who also since added more tour dates, including a NYC-area show at Long Island's Paramount on May 29. Tickets for that show are on venue presale now, and go on sale to the general public Friday (4/3) at 10 AM. That's one day before they play the Roots Picnic in Philly.
All Phantogram dates are listed below too...
Alabama's Hangout Music Festival returns from May 15-17, and the lineup's just been expanded.

Tickets are on sale now.
Updated lineup below...
Hangout Music Festival, which will now be co-produced by Goldenvoice (the same company that produces Coachella), returns to the beaches of Gulf Shores, AL from May 15-17 this year.

Andrew Jackson Jihad
Folk punks Andrew Jackson Jihad returned this year with their fifth album, Christmas Island, and they've now announced they'll continue supporting it with a 2015 tour. It's a pretty stacked tour, with support from their Australian SideOneDummy labelmates The Smith Street Band, their American labelmate Jeff Rosenstock, and Brooklyn DIY pop punks Chumped. The A.V. Club-presented tour hits NYC on March 20 at Warsaw. Tickets for that show (and all other dates) go on sale Friday (12/12). All dates are listed below.
As usual, you've got other chances to catch Chumped in their hometown before that. They celebrate their great debut record, Teenage Retirement, on Saturday (12/13) at Suburbia, also with Jeff Rosenstock, as well as Cayetana, Chris Gethard and Adult Dude (tix at door). Then, they open for Plow United on 12/30 at Acheron (tickets). If you haven't checked out Teenage Retirement, you can change that by listening below.
Both Chumped and Andrew Jackson Jihad made Jeff Rosenstock's 2014 year-end list. Speaking of year-end lists, SideOneDummy, and Chumped, Chumped's SideOneDummy-signed recent tourmates PUP also gave us a list of their favorite albums of 2014. And (wait for it), it includes Cayetana, who play Chumped's release show (and whose release show Chumped played) and who toured with PUP when both bands opened for The Menzingers (who have dates coming up) who it also includes!
Check out their whole list/entertaining commentary, with the AJJ dates, below...

Spoon / Pearl Jam
The second weekend of ACL 2014 wrapped up on Sunday (10/12), and this time around we caught sets by Pearl Jam, Spoon, Real Estate, The Gaslight Anthem, AFI, Phantogram, Lorde and more. Pictures from the final day of the festival are in this post, the person that climbed up the Capitol building included.
Jenny Lewis / The Replacements / Spoon @ ACL Fest 10/5/2014
"Thank you for coming over to our nook when the Replacements were playing," Spoon frontman Britt Daniel said. "We were trying to figure out who to yell at about that"...The 2014 ACL Festival wrapped up its first of two weekends on Sunday (10/5) with sets from The Replacements and Spoon (playing at the same time which made for tough audience choices), as well as Jenny Lewis, The Gaslight Anthem, Chromeo, Phantogram, Jhene Aiko and many more. Pictures from those and other ACL Day 3 performers are in this post.
...swapping between a classy mustard-colored Telecaster and an acoustic guitar, Daniel seemed to have a blast on stage, smiling as he nodded his head along to the layers of synths and keys of "Inside Out" -- the prettiest and least Spoon-sounding Spoon song -- and poking fun at the band's previous work. "Not bad for a song from 'Transference," he said, after "Who Makes Your Money." [Austin 360]
Phantogram playing The Hills NYC during Fashion Week (via @TheHillsNYC)
Legendary NYC club Don Hill's closed its doors for good in April 2011, just a few weeks after its namesake owner passed away suddenly at age 66. The space, located at 511 Greenwich Street, is now coming back, and in what sounds like much the same form, but as The Hills NYC. The new incarnation launched their website back in the spring with this statement:
Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, The Hills NYC was birthed from the iconic venue Don Hill's, which closed its doors for the last time in 2011. Reset, rebuilt and refocused, The Hills NYC is here to bring back Don's original vision of a legendary venue which showcases Rock and Roll icons and NY talent. We are COMING SOON! & We are here to keep NY real.The Hills NYC made its debut in September with a private Interview party during Fashion Week 2014 (Phantogram played) and hopes to be open later this fall.
Alt-J at LPR earlier this month (more by PSquared)
Alt-J's slightly weirder sophomore album This Is All Yours came out this week, and now they've announced what is by far their largest NYC show yet. They recently played intimate shows here at Le Poisson Rouge and Rough Trade and have a larger sold-out show happening at Beacon Theatre on November 16 on their proper tour, but now that seems intimate too. The UK band have announced they'll be returning in 2015 to headline Madison Square Garden on March 30 with support from Phantogram. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (10/3) at 10 AM.
Presumably more North American dates happening around then will be announced. All currently known dates are listed below...
Indie pop singer-songwriter Lia Ices has a new album coming out on September 16 via Jagjaguwar, aptly titled Ices, and a tour to go with it. She'll play a record release show in her hometown of NYC at Mercury Lounge on September 17, and tickets for that will be on sale this Friday (8/15) at noon. After that she'll kick off that tour with Phantogram. While her last album notably featured a contribution from Justin Vernon, she's got a much different kind of collaborator on this one: electronic/hip hop producer Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Tri Angle Records) who produced several tracks. You can hear two of those, "Higher" and "Thousand Eyes," below.

Outkast / Nick Cave / Modest Mouse
Headliner OutKast took the stage with a more pertinent query: "Are you ready for the greatest rap group of all time?" It was classic rap hype, and yet as the ensuing 90 minutes proved, the recently reunited duo of Big Boi and Andre 3000 has earned the right to include itself in the ranks of the hip hop elite. Not only did these guys show no rust, they reminded us what made them great since their first album, Southernplayalisticadillacmusik, was released 20 years ago: a dynamic and utterly complementary MC team blessed with rare musicality, lyrical ingenuity and stylistic audacity. From frenetic opener Bombs Over Baghdad to the understatedly anthemic Wheelz of Steel, civil rights party jam Rosa Parks and the song that made them a household name, Ms. Jackson, they were at once authoritatively engaging and sonically adventurous. Sure, there were hits, lots - including irresistible genre-bender Hey Ya! (delivered by André 3000 with a line of female fans dancing on stage - cheesy, but effective), sly boast So Fresh, So Clean, and the beautifully sleepy Elevators - but it's all relative. At its best, OutKast mixed cool and creativity like nobody's business. [Montreal Gazette]Taking place over the same weekend as Lollapalooza, and boasting a similarly huge lineup, Montreal's annual music festival Osheaga went down over this past weekend (August 1-3). The stacked festival included sets from Outkast, Jack White, The Replacements (with Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong), Arctic Monkeys, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Modest Mouse, Danny Brown, Mac Demarco, Against Me!, The Dismemberment Plan, Haim and many more. Pictures of some of those artists, and a bunch of others, are in this post.

Lollapalooza 2013 (more by James Richards IV)
Lollapalooza 2014 starts today in Chicago's Grant Park and if you aren't there you can still check out a lot of the action though their live webcast. Today's webcast starts at 3:15 PM EST and you can watch Courtney Barnett, Interpol, Arctic Monkeys, Jagwar Ma, Broken Bells, Lykke Li, Phantogram and more.

Beck / Chance the Rapper / the 'Beek @ Firefly 2014
Foo Fighters set the bar high Friday night with its impromptu five-song set of covers, but they weren't the only ones tapping into the deep well of other artists' hits.Dover, DE's Firefly Music Festival just wrapped up its third year, drawing about 80,000 attendees over three days. We already posts sets of pictures from Weezer, Courtney Barnett, San Fermin and Outkast's sets at Firefly, and here's the rest of what we shot, including Beck, Arctic Monkeys, Foo Fighters, Phantogram, Sleigh Bells, Washed Out, Girl Talk, Iron & Wine and lots more.
Arctic Monkeys played a bit of Black Sabbath's War Pigs, Sleigh Bells teased the crowd with the intro to Extreme's More Than Words and Imagine Dragons paid homage to Rush with a powerful rendition of Tom Sawyer. And that's not even taking into account the collaborations, including Cage the Elephant jumping on stage with Imagine Dragons to play the latter's hit Radioactive.
The talker of the festival, though, was Beck's funkified version of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean -- including moves fit for the King of Pop -- during his Saturday night set on the lawn stage. - [USA Today]
Firefly has already announced dates for next year which will go down June 18 - 21, 2015. Lots more pics from Firefly 2014 below.

Outkast @ Firefly Fest 2014
We went to the music festival that happened in Delaware over the weekend, and not surprisingly, Outkast was one of the headliners. Pictures from their set are in this post.
