FESTIVAL WATCH: Lollapalooza 2014 Includes Arctic Monkeys, Outkast, Spoon And More

 

It seems like we've been anxiously waiting for summer to come for years, but this morning with the announcement of Lollapalooza's 2014 lineup, we're ready to throw the entire season in the trash just to get to August sooner!

 

With 3-day passes already sold out before the complete list of acts was out, we know that Grant Park is going to be packed and ready to rock starting on the first of August. Single day passes to see FILTER favorites that include Kings of Leon, Outkast, Arctic Monkeys, Warpaint, Phantogram, London Grammar and more are still available, but going fast, so hurry!

 

Be there or be square!

With SXSW all wrapped up and Coachella less than a month away, the couple of weeks bordering March and April are a brief oasis for touring musicians and die-hard fans who need a few minutes to put their feet up, close their eyes and reboot before the summer festival streak begins.

 

For Kelis Rogers--better known by the masses simply as Kelis--the hectic whirlwind that was SXSW 2014 was only one jam-packed week in the long road to her latest album, FOOD (out April 18th via Ninja Tune), as well as her physical, emotional and sonic transformation from the good ole' "Milkshake" days.

 

It was a confident, '70s channeling, big brass and soul loving Kelis that took to the Apogee stage for KCRW with her 12 person band and a new collection of timeless classics.

LOOK: The Pixies Announce Release Date For New LP

 

It’s taken more than two decades and a few different bass players for it to happen, but The Pixies have finally announced the release of a new full length studio album.


Indy Cindy will be the band’s first album since 1991’s Trompe le Monde, and will feature songs from the bands EP-1, EP-2, and EP-3, which were released in late 2013 and early 2014 and previously only available in digital and limited edition vinyl formats. Indy Cindy will mark the first collection of new songs on one record from The Pixies in 23 years.

Annie Clark knows more about you than you probably think she does.


She knows that “your favorite word is orgiastic…Your lip curls slightly downward…You were probably born north of the equator… and once when you were little you built a hot air balloon out of sheets and really hoped it would fly, and you were really disappointed when it didn’t.”

How does this woman have such vast oracular knowledge of the deepest recesses of our psyche? It’s hard to tell, but she seems to have a lot going on in that wiry-haired head of hers.
