ACL Festival - Week 2 - Day 1 - 10/11/2013

Will Sheff and his band Okkervil River showed up for work Friday at the Honda Stage in a much different frame of mind than they did the previous Friday. "Playing festivals is the most fun, but also the most stressful thing we do," he said. "But having played here just last week makes it less nerve-wracking." All the sound mixes from last week have been kept on hard drives for every band returning.

Since this is the first year the Austin City Limits Music Festival has taken place on two consecutive weekends, with nearly identical lineups, Friday was the day to see if the lack of spontaneity would zap any of the enthusiasm from the first weekend. But the only difference seemed to be that everyone -- from bands to crews to fans -- seemed to be a bit more relaxed. We know how to do this. -[The Statesman]

Weekend 2 of Austin's ACL Music Festival is underway as we speak, with an almost identical line-up and schedule and the first. Friday night (10/11) featured sets from Arctic Monkeys, Okkervil River, Queens of the Stone Age, Blind Boys of Alabama, Vampire Weekend, and more. Pictures from those bands' sets and more of the action are in this post.

Weekend 2 continues today (10/12) with sets from The Cure, Wilco, Passion Pit, Kings of Leon, Junip and loads of others. If you're not there, you can stream it live. We'll have more coverage of Weekend 2 of ACL 2013 BrooklynVegan and on BV Austin so stay tuned. You can check out pics from Weekend 1 as well. Meanwhile, more pics from Weekend 2, Day 1 below...

Outside Lands 2012 (more by Amoreena Lucero)
Outside Lands

Lollapalooza and Osheaga are behind us, but the summer festivals keep rolling on with San Francisco's Outside Lands this weekend (8/9-8/11). The festival is sold out, but if you've already got tickets and are going, you might like to know how to get there, and once you're there, the festival map will help you find your way around inside.

Meanwhile, if you're not going to Outside Lands, but still want to watch the fun go down, you can stream it live on Purevolume. Artists whose sets will stream live include Jessie Ware, The National, Band of Horses, Yeasayer, and more on Friday; Nine Inch Nails, Grizzly Bear, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoenix, The Tallest Man on Earth, Baauer, Gary Clark Jr and more on Saturday; and Vampire Weekend, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dawes, Kurt Vile, Foals, Rudimental, Camper Van Beethoven and more on Sunday.

D'Angelo has officially dropped off the festival, after recently cancelling other shows due to illness. He was replaced by Chic. You know, the band that guy who worked with Daft Punk is in.

The full Outside Lands schedule can be found at their site. Full streaming schedule below...

Lollapalooza Day 3 - 8/4/2013
Lollapalooza Day 3 - 8/4/2013
Lollapalooza Day 3 - 8/4/2013

Even Goth-rockers love singalongs. After the opening synth chords, the Cure's Robert Smith begins to belt out "Just Like Heaven" and is instantly joined by a Grant Park choir numbering in the tens of thousands. Smith and his bandmates sprinkle Cure classics such as "Pictures of You" and "Friday I'm in Love" through a set that continues the weekend's '80s nostalgia theme, begun by New Order and Nine Inch Nails. Smith is in fine voice, and he even pulls off a few interpretive dance moves -- a rare bout of friskiness from a singer who still sports frazzled hair, eye shadow and lipstick. It's become his trademark, and it's turned Smith somewhat timeless -- an ageless figure still singing about a type of loss, heartache and yearning that never dissipates. [Chicago Tribune]
Lollapalooza 2013 wrapped up yesterday (8/4) with sets from Cat Power, Phoenix, The Cure, Vampire Weekend, Alt-J, Angel Haze, DIIV, Bear Mountain and more. Pictures of those (and other) artists are in this post, and we've got a second set of Sunday pics HERE on the way.

We at BrooklynVegan were also there on Sunday from 1-3 PM in the Soundwave Tent with School of Rock, Bear Mountain, and The Orwells.

Firefly 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Firefly
firefly

It's been crazy both in and not-in the NYC-area for festivals this past week. NYC was taken over by a very muddy Governors Ball last weekend (6/7-9), and this past weekend (6/14-16), while almost every Brooklyn venue took part in the Northside Festival, Toronto was hosting NXNE and Tennessee had Bonnaroo to name the ones we were most focused on. That's all behind us now, but those who are into festivals still have much more to look forward to this summer including another big one on the east coast this weekend.

This coming weekend, Friday, June 21-Sunday, June 23, the Firefly Music Festival is returning to Dover, Delaware's Dover International Speedway, which is only about a 3 hour drive (directions) from NYC. The festival debuted last year, and like Governors Ball, they've upped their game a bit this year. There will be a bunch of great bands across four main stages, like:

On Friday, there's sets by Django Django, Dr. Dog, Action Bronson, Foxygen, Public Enemy, Grizzly Bear, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Earl Sweatshirt (who was added to the lineup in May) and more. And besides RHCP vs Earl (who start 15 minutes apart), the conflicts that day aren't too bad.

On Saturday, there's sets by Japandroids, Jim James (who replaced Imagine Dragons, so bonus points for that), Kendrick Lamar, Alabama Shakes vs Lord Huron at 5 PM, then CHVRCHES vs Edward Sharpe, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT vs Azealia Banks, and finally Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will headline the day, plus still more.

And on the festival's final day, Sunday, you can catch Haim, Matt & Kim, Toro y Moi, Passion Pit vs The Walkmen both going on at 6:30, Vampire Weekend, and more. Plus, if you need to leave early to get home from work on Monday, you can leave before Foster the People's headlining set. Two birds, huh?

UPDATE:Both Earl Sweatshirt and The Lumineers have cancelled, but were replaced by Schoolboy Q & Ben Harper.

And in addition to the main stages, there's some smaller side stuff too, like the Red Bull Sound Select Hub Stage which features bands who have joined the Red Bull Sound Select Program. We aren't familiar with all the bands playing that one, but we suggest you stop by Saturday for NYC's Heliotropes (who, by the way, are playing a record release show in NYC on 6/18, and streaming their new record). The Skins and Oxymorrons are both on that stage too, both NYC bands who we caught when they played the Afropunk-curated RBSS show at Knitting Factory with Danny Brown.

There's also the Coffee House Stage with other smaller acts including The Spinto Band, Jenny Owen Young, Pearl & the Beard, Hey Marseilles, Selah Sue, Trails & Ways, and many more.

Last but not least, in addition to just being there as fans and covering the festival, BrooklynVegan will be producing two hours of entertainment from 1-3pm each day inside the Soundwave tent, presented by Toyota and Spinmedia, and hosted by musician & BV contributor Billy Jones. Take a look at the festival map - our stage is toward the top left next to St. Jude.

Hosted overall by one of our favorite comedians, Dave Hill, the Soundwave stage will also feature programming by SPIN (5-7 each day) and Hype Machine (3-5 each day) in addition to the BrooklynVegan stuff (1-3 each day). Stay tuned for our full stage schedule, but get there on Friday at 1pm for a live interview with Django Django and look forward to a second performance by and audience Q & A with Amanda Palmer on Sunday at 2pm. More details soon!

Meanwhile, check out the full main stages Firefly lineup and schedule at Firefly's website where you'll also find much more info if you're attending, like the festival map which is also below...

Toro Y Moi

The strong "Anything in Return" (Carpark), Mr. Bundick's recently released third full-length album, can't help but feel like a response to the womb he was born of. It's by far the most muscular of his work, even if his version of muscle is a thin sinew, only lightly flexed. Still, it's not chill. Not totally, at least.

His show at Webster Hall on Wednesday night highlighted the difficulties of shaking loose of the calm and moving toward squall.

Even at its most raging, Toro y Moi's music is an insular proposition, which in a room the size of this one, has its limitations.

At times, the mood was shamanistic -- there was smoke in the air, and the light show was throbbingly vivid. When Mr. Bundick went into psychedelic-soul freakout mode, it had moments of transporting power. - [NY Times]

Chillwave survivor Toro Y Moi rolled through NYC this week on his current tour with Wild Belle and Dog Bite, playing Webster Hall on Wednesday (2/13, as reviewed by the Times, above) and Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (2/15). Backed some sleek, '80s-inspired lighting, Chaz and his band tore through a good chunk of his brand new Anything in Return and select cuts from his two previous LPs.

More pictures from last night's MHOW show below...

Sasquatch

Says the PR

On the heels of a highly successful, critically acclaimed sold-out 2012 festival, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2013 lineup, which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 24-27 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The
Gorge
, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA.
