Boy & Bear, I can’t get enough of this band. Beyond stoked to see the kids from Down Under bring it in front of a huge crowd in Chicago. I wrote about them a couple weeks ago and featured their single “Feeding Line” off their upcoming debut album Moon Fire which get this, drops August 5 (August 9 in the states) when Lollapalooza begins. How’s that for a way to celebrate!
Another band I’ve been dying to see live, Two Door Cinema Club. I love their indie-pop/electro/rock combination. From their thieving guitar sound and Alex Trimble’s vocals, you just have to say to yourself, ‘wow.’
Not that this should be what you base it on but TDCC are part of the incredible growing line-up on Glassnote Records (Phoenix, Mumford & Sons, GIVERS, Temper Trap, etc.), not bad company for the Irish Trio to be associated with.
Saturday, Aug. 6, Music Unlimited Stage, 12:45 p.m.
This is one show you’ll want to get to the festival early for. Hands down one of the top performances at Bonnaroo earlier this summer, Walk The Moon, put on an energetic, electric set from start to finish. Riding high on the release of i want! i want! and the lead single “Anna Sun,” the quartet from Ohio are primed and ready to break it big.
And get the face paint ready (you’ll figure it out!).
Another rising act in the States that I’m excited to see, The Joy Formidable. The Welsh trio tore up SXSW earlier this year and if all the hype I’ve heard surrounding their live shows is true, they should do the same at Lollapalooza.
Now that we are single digit days away from the 20th Anniversary of Lollapalooza I’m going to highlight some artists I’m excited to see and try to keep it different from artists who were on the Bonnaroo countdown but that may be a little too hard with a few of them.
Here’s “Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)” by Portugal. The Man off the new record In the Mountain in the Cloud.
Music Monday and what better than Brett Dennen’s new video for “Comeback Kid (That’s My Dog)” shot at the home of his favorite baseball team, the Oakland A’s as well as from shows on tour this summer!
Want to know more about Dennen’s love for the A’s and why it was shot at Oakland Coliseum? Click HERE and read my friend Alyssa’s piece on ESPN.com Page 2. And if you don’t have Dennen’s new album Loverboy, go get it now!
