Lollapalooza (more by Grant MacAllister)

Chicago Sun Times reports:

Lollapalooza has revealed its official 2012 list of performers -- a typically wide-ranging smorgasbord of genres and styles topped by nearly a dozen mainstage headliners: the Red Hot Chili Peppers, freshly reunited bands Black Sabbath and At the Drive-In, the Black Keys, Jack White, Florence + The Machine, the Shins and Passion Pit, plus spotlighted electronic music including Swedish house titan Avicii, French dance duo Justice and DJ-producer Bassnectar.

The annual music festival is scheduled for Aug. 3-5 in Chicago's Grant Park.

Rumored lineups have circulated widely, as they usually do, and Lollapalooza itself stoked the speculation in recent weeks via a series of CTA and online advertisements that seemed to hint at who would be playing.

The ads featured lyrics from such acts as Sigur Ros, Santigold, Jack White, Kimbra, Twin Shadow, the Weeknd, Bloc Party and more -- all bands that wound up on the bill.

Check out the full list below...

ACL 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)

October 8-10, 2010 | Zilker Park, Austin, TX

"The Austin City Limits Music Festival began as a modest, two-day event and now, as it enters it's 9th year, has become a perennial American music experience. Taking place at the heart of Austin, Texas in the legendary Zilker Park, ACL Festival has grown to 3 days, 8 stages and over 130 bands."

Tickets go on sale today. The 2010 ACL lineup is below...

"The 2010 Lollapalooza line-up is official: Soundgarden, Green Day, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Phoenix will headline, joined by Social Distortion, MGMT, Jimmy Cliff, Hot Chip, and The Black Keys. With 130 bands on this year's bill, its sure to be a weekend long feast for the ears.

It's a monumental year for Lollapalooza, filled with homecomings, reunions, and first-times. Soundgarden, 1992 and 1996 Lollapalooza alumni, return to the Lollapalooza stage for their first performance since 1997. Green Day will rock Grant Park sixteen years after their first Lollapalooza appearance. While Lady Gaga will headline the festival only three short years after playing the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2007.

Arcade Fire returns to Grant Park, having played the reincarnated Lollapalooza in 2005. This is the first Lollapalooza for The Strokes - and also their first show in four years. And making their Lollapalooza debut: Phoenix." - Lollapalooza
After extremely accurate early leaks and then much teasing, Lollapalooza oficially announces this year's lineup. Check it out below...

JEFF The Brotherhood in Nashville (more by Paul Birman)
JEFF The Brotherhood


Today's the free Brooklyn Vegan party at Pianos (158 Ludlow Street, NY, NY). Downstairs I've dubbed the "TWII Stage" as every band playing has been written about on This Week in Indie at some point over the last year, even the just-announced Sky Larkin. I'm super excited that the day starts with Moonbabies' first U.S. show in eight years. We've also got Italy's A Classic Education, who are a more orchestral take on '90s indie rock and are pretty great live. Then there's the wild, in-your-face triple threat of the UK's Lovvers, Montreal's Duchess Says and Nashville's JEFF the Brotherhood which might leave Pianos in shambles. And then of course Surfer Blood who are playing a total of 12 shows this week. Insane. Buy some throat coat tea, guys. Upstairs is a little more civilized but no less awesome, including Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's Alec Ounsworth, Freelance Whales, Peggy Sue, former Jealous Girlfriends singer Holly Miranda who is now on XL, her Saddle Creek-signed friend Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson and more. Full lineup with set times below.

Not that you'd really have any reason to leave our party at all, but Aquariam Drunkard is throwing a very good party too over at Fontana's. Playing are The Love Language (who play the BV loft party tomorrow night), neo trip hoppers Phantogram, Local Natives (who also play the loft party and the BV/Bowery Presents day party on Saturday), The Happy Hollows, The Roadside Graves, Joshua James, and Blair.


If you can't make it in time for Moonbabies noon set time at Pianos, they're playing tonight as part of an all-Swedish event at the Norwood Club in the Meatpacking District featuring bands and DJs. Along with Moonbabies, performers include the smoky jazz pop of Francis, singer-songwriters Sofia Talvik and Jaw Lesson. Also, for those curious types, Norwood is a chi chi private club, so here's your chance to see how the other half parties.


There's a good lineup at The Rose in Williamsburg which is usually a jazz club but tonight plays host to four electronic-leaning bands. The one I really want to see is FOUND who are an artist collective/band from Edinburgh, Scotland whose sound ranges from celtic to glitchy funk. They are a little odd, in a good way, and I hear are worth seeing live. You candownload their Fidelities EP here. Also on the bill: Gainsville, FL's Oh Fortunamake infectious synth-pop; Detroit's Computer Perfection who are an offshoot of Pas/Cal and make highly orchestrated '60s psych pop; and Brooklyn's interestingly-named Binary Marketing Show.

And at Music Hall of Williamsburg is an almost entirely UK line-up, the kind that would probably have editors at Q and Uncut salivating. And the one band that's not British, Australia's The Temper Trap, pretty much sound like they're from the UK (I'm thinking the U2s, Travises and Keenes of the Brit scene). More interesting to me are openers The Golden Silvers, who seem to pull influence from equal parts ELO and ABC. It is at times so sugary your teeth hurt, but they know their way around a good hook. Also playing are Mumford & Sons who are the most celtic-leaning of the London folk scene that gave us Laura Marling and Noah & the Whale. They are impressive live, really nailing those lush harmonies. I don't know a lot about Goldhawks but their reach-for-the-stars brand of Brit Indie will probably sound even bigger with MHoW's kick-ass soundsystem. The Music Hall show is now sold out, but you can still get in with a badge.

Our hip hop recommendations (including the BV-sponsored show at Southpaw tonight) HERE. The xx (who played to an overpacked Mercury Lounge last night) is at the Apple Store at 7, and then they play the NME party at the Delancey tonight with The Antlers who played an in-store at Sound Fix yesterday where Cymbals Eat Guitars DON'T (CANCELLED) play today before heading to Public Assembly for the late night Vice party with Ume who play our day show at Fontana's on Friday with Crystal Antlers who played the Vice late night party last night with Grooms who replaced Cold Cave who cancelled.. Deer Tick headline Bowery Ballroom tonight. Chris Denny, who also plays the BV day party today, is one of the openers on that show. Fliers, a Golden Silvers video and day party set times after the jump...

Temper Trap

Melbourne, Australia's The Temper Trap are currently on their first big tour of the States, and will head into New York later this week for two shows during the CMJ fest: Thursday (10/22) at Music Hall of Williamsburg (tickets) and Friday (10/23) at Bowery Ballroom (tickets). Already huge in their own country, the band's debut album is currently in the UK Top 40 and their single "Sweet Disposition" (also featured in the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack) is just outside the UK Top 10. Their sound is stadium-ready (I'm talking U2 and Keane) but I do think they have some good songs. I especially like non-single "Down River" and there's no denying "Sweet Disposition" is catchy. So I wouldn't be surprised if the next time they hit town they skip straight to Terminal 5. We'll see.

The MHoW show is a pretty good show overall, where they play with three London bands: the folky, charming Mumford & Sons who were great at Cameo back in March; the underrated, hard-to-pigeonhole Golden Silvers, and Goldhawks who've toured with Temper Trap in the UK and have a somewhat similar sound.

The Bowery show is with Portland's hippy-friendly Portugal. The Man, Boston's country-ish Drug Rug, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Wheel (who play our show at MHoW tomorrow night [10/20]), Cincinnati's anthemic, atmospheric All The Day Holiday, and singer-songwriter Julia Nunes.

A couple Temper Trap videos, plus tour dates, are below...
