The festival is staying with the format they debuted last year, which will again feature the many artists on the line-up holding down the polo fields for two weekends, April 12th to the 14th as well as the 19th and the 21st.
Some of the notable acts will be the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Stone Roses, New Order, Modest Mouse, Tegan and Sara, Of Monsters and Men, and the Lumineers.
I thought I’d post a band from each day that I think you shouldn’t miss.
First up on Friday, you shouldn’t miss the Yeah Yeah Yeahs! They’re are a great live act. When I saw them a couple years back at the Greek Theater, I was blown away. By far one of the best shows I’ve ever seen in Los Angeles.
I also have a love for Karen O, the frontwoman. She’s got a great style on stage and is one of the best female performers there is today.
Also, one side note not to miss on Friday is a band from Vancouver called the Japandroids…they’re a two piece that gives everything they have on stage.
On to Saturday, the Postal Service!
First of all I’m excited they’re playing together again! I once had a chance to see them, but was trying to save a relationship so I decided to go to a NBA playoff game instead…much regret on that.
The Postal Service was formed by Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, who with producer Jimmy Tamborello, would send tracks back and forth in the mail, hence the name The Postal Service.
They also added a girl I very much love, Los Angeles’ own, the very talented Jenny Lewis.
They released one album, “Give Up,” which blew people’s minds and then that was it, over and out. If you don’t have that album, stop what you’re doing and get it now!
To finish up on Sunday, you should check out The Gaslight Anthem.
They’re a band from New Jersey who since being formed have put out nothing but great music.
Think Bruce Springsteen with a blend of punk rock mixed in, Bruce also happens to be a big fan of his home state musicians.
Passes to both weekends will go on sale starting January 29th at 10am.
Time to kick off the weekend with Surfer Stephen and his favorite viral videos! Check out some of his previous picks below:
