Will The Vaccines be able to handle our Canadian bruisers? Will they escape without being upstaged? Perhaps so, check out their take on the Minor Threat cover of the The Standells’ track “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White.” They’re even joined on stage by original ‘Threat member Lyle Preslar.
If you’re like us (and I suspect you are), YOU LOVE MUSIC FESTIVALS almost as much as you love freedom. And there’s so many that are close to our hearts. Matador’s Lost Weekend. Atlamont. The Gathering Of The Juggalos. The Cornerstone Festival. I could go on, but you’ve probably got some illegal downloading to back to, so let’s cut to the chase. Transmission Entertainment’s 7th annual Fun Fun Fun Festival is happening in Austin, TX this coming November 2, 3 and 4, and we’re thrilled to
find out at the last minute announce Tanlines, Fucked Up, Paul Banks and The Young are all taking part.
Likewise, ATP America’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” weekender (September 21-23) has been moved from Asbury Park, NJ to the glamorous West Side of Manhattan. The Lee Ranaldo Band and Chavez will be playing, along with a tremendous lineup of performers, none of whom are named Louis C.K. They’ll all have their hands full measuring up to Richie Blackmore at California Jam (above) , but there’s no harm in trying.
