Louisville's Forecastle Fest has added a bunch of new acts to the lineup, including Pokey LaFarge, The Arcs, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, AlunaGeorge, White Denim, Hudson Mohawke, Heartless Bastards and more. Tickets for the whole fest, which also includes previously-announced headliners like Death Cab For Cutie, Alabama Shakes, The Avett Brothers and Ryan Adams, are still on sale. Check out the full Forecastle lineup below.
Speaking of the recently-hacked Death Cab for Cutie, the band recently played Mexico's Todos Santos Fest, which is run by R.E.M.'s Peter Buck. During their festival-closing set they were joined by Peter and his R.E.M. bandmate Mike Mills for a rendition of the band's 1986 single "Fall on Me." You can check out video of that R.E.M. cover, below.
Death Cab play NYC's Governors Ball in May.
Pokey LaFarge returned last year with Something In The Water, his first album for Rounder Records (following a 2013 LP on Third Man). If you haven't heard it, it's more of the old timey folk revival he's been doing a lot of justice to for a while now. Check out the video for the title track and a Spotify stream of the whole album, below.
Pokey will continue to support that album on tour this year, including a NYC show on April 3 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (1/29) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (1/27) at noon.
All dates are listed below...

Old-timey folk revivalist Pokey LaFarge spent the better part of 2014 on the road, playing over 250 shows throughout the year.

On April 19th, Record Store Day, Third Man Records will present Jack White recording the World's Fastest Released Record, studio-to-store, in the history of mankind.Also at the Third Man store on RSD, Whirwind Heat will play their first show since 2006, and of course there will be tons of records and RSD exclusives on sale. Tickets for Vault members are available here, and more info on the event here. Flyer below.
You heard correctly. First thing in the morning, Jack White will take the stage in Third Man's blue room and record direct-to-acetate what will serve as the limited edition version of his next single, a live rendition of the title track from his upcoming LP Lazaretto. The masters will be rushed over to United Record Pressing who will immediately begin pressing 45s. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show. The finished records will be whisked back to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans. All in the same day. All in a matter of mere hours. As long as there are fans in line waiting to buy the single, United will continue to press and deliver them to Third Man to sell. Even if it takes all day.
In related news, Third Man Records artist Pokey LaFarge has announced he'll be going on a tour this year. While many artists may look the part of an old timey folk musician, Pokey sounds it, with unpolished acoustic instrumentation that sounds decades-old and is far from trendy. On his relationship to Jack White, STL Today writes:
His connection with White has been fruitful. They met after White sought out LaFarge after hearing his music on an AM radio station in Nashville three years ago. He says White is attracted to "rough around the edges vocals and performances, stuff that's really vibrant, and roots-based music. He thought I was fitting for his label."You can listen to tracks from his last self-titled album, which came out in 2013 via TMR, here and watch the video for its opening song, "Central Time," below.
Pokey's tour hits NYC on July 9 at Bowery Ballroom with Sturgill Simpson. Tickets for that show go on sale today (4/4) at noon.
All of his dates are listed, with the song streams and Jack White flyer, below...

bad news for jack white fans tonight - he was just spotted outside the Barclays Center looking for a jay-z ticket. - DFA Records
I don't know who had the rights to Radio City Music Hall but I'm pretty sure Jack White owns it now. #2ndnightsuccess - Carson_Kelly
Jack White played everything at double or triple speed, with a lot of anger, and it was awesome. - BuzzFeed
Jack White's only words about last nights #jackwhitedebacle "Thank You" - Lucien Desar
Lucky for Jack White Sunday night ticket-holders, the above tweet by DFA Records was untrue, and the White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather/Third Man honcho also played a much longer show than he did on Saturday when he strangely played a super short one.
Here are some pictures from the short Saturday NYC show, and the longer setlist from Sunday at Radio City. It all continues below...
