Foo Fighters are throwing their second annual Cal Jam festival this year, and this time they play right after Iggy Pop's ”exclusive one-off reunion” with his 'Post Pop Depression' band (mem QOTSA, Arctic Monkeys)...
The Milwaukee fest also includes The Weeknd, Spoon, Grizzly Bear, Social Distortion, Pat Benatar, Meat Puppets, Ash, Sugarhill Gang, Jason Isbell, Soccer Mommy, Hurray for the Riff Raff, and much more.
Arctic Monkeys, Jack White, The National, and Vampire Weekend all play different days, so if you were hoping to catch the big indie/alternative rock names and just go one or two days, that's kind of a bummer. St. Vincent the same day as Vampire Weekend is a nice touch though.
Quebec City's massive, 11-day festival runs July 5-15 and the lineup also includes Beck, The Weeknd, Foo Fighters, Phoenix, Sturgill Simpson, Sum 41, Cyndi Lauper, Car Seat Headrest, Frank Turner, Jane Birkin, Bonobo, Brockhampton, Jethro Tull and a whole bunch more.
"The Howard Stern Tribute to David Bowie" premieres February 9 on SiriusXM's Howard 101 channel and also features covers by Todd Rundgren, Gogol Bordello, Sun Kil Moon (ft Petra Haden), Lisa Loeb, Dawes, and more.
