Outside Lands
Compared to Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella, Outside Lands is like the little sister of musical festivals. The other U.S. fests established themselves in the 90's or early 2000's; the San Francisco fest didn't start until 2008. Despite its short run however, the Outside Lands' organizers have managed to pull together another very impressive lineup this year, which includes Paul McCartney,...

Photos from Lollapalooza 2010: Lollapalooza Entrace
Last week, we reported on a leaked poster that allegedly listed the Lollapalooza 2013 lineup.  While most of this kind of leaked music fest information turns out to be faked, last week’s Lollapalooza poster was legit.  That’s right, The Cure, The Killers, and Mumford & Sons will be your headliners at Lollapalooza 2013, with support from Nine Inch...

The Grammy nominees were finally announced this week. There were a lot of surprises in the categories, including the fact that no female artist is up for Best Album Of The Year. But the ladies weren't the only ones who got snubbed. Justin Bieber was also left out of the running. The teenage sensation received zero nominations, and that got his manager, Scooter...

So what do you do after your fourth record ends up on several end-of-the-year best-of lists, earns some Grammy love, snags you three spots on Saturday Night Live, headlining festival sets, and a ton of licensing deals?  According to Spin, French hotshots Phoenix “are turning their backs on the sound that made them international superstars.”

Phoenix at Outside Lands Festival 2010
Our time up in San Francisco went by faster than we had hoped! Outside Lands Festival 2010 was literally a nice breath of fresh air compared to festivals like Coachella. It also had that breeze we didn't get at Lollapalooza the weekend before. Most of all, it had a lot of hippies who just wanted to share the love... man.

Metric at Lollapalooza 2010
Lollapalooza's first day may have had Lady Gaga, but day 2 was jam packed with artists whether you were a huge electronica head, an indie rocker or Bayside ska kid. We knew we definitely had our day cut out for us but with Grant Park's massive size for a festival, we must have walked miles as we rushed to see band after band. Some big names that got us warmed up for the...

Phoenix at Lollapalooza 2010
For a big band such as Green Day headlining day 2 of Lollapalooza, a decent amount of the massive sea of people still decided to go with Phoenix to end their night. Even with Empire of the Sun (with a full band) also starting a late slot a half hour later, the Parisian band had a crowd extend all the way from the Budweiser stage to the opposite end where the...

Thomas Mars (from Phoenix) moves the way Jim Morrison used to and on Sunday he leaped into his crowd, threw himself on the stage floor, and looked to be enjoying every second of the attention he was getting. Mars is a wild man and along with the rest of his band, put on one of the best shows at Coachella 2010.

Ok, festival kids, the Coachella set times are now up, and the inevitable queasy feeling in your stomach can now begin as you decide which favorite acts you’ll be missing, or only catching a part of, in order to watch MGMT suck for 50 minutes (kidding, kidding—but not really, as MGMT really do suck, guys).  Owing to a slightly more spread-out schedule than in recent years, with (for myself...
