This year's Treasure Island Music Festival
should be another one for the weekender history books, if the early leaked acts booked to perform are any indication. Unofficially on tap to perform Oct. 17 and 18 are MGMT
and Girl Talk
(Sat) and Flaming Lips
(who have a new record coming out), Beirut
, and Decemberists
(Sunday). These six are pretty top-tier acts in the indie rock/indie-leaning electronic worlds, and, well, Flaming Lips and outdoor music events go together like Justice and glow-sticks (last year's big combo). It's good to see that in its third year, Treasure Island is still picking interesting, popular artists who are as entertaining live as they are in the studio.[Forgot to add: full lineup announced on Monday, July 13].
