  • Linkin Park, coming soon to a Shoreline near you.
If you're one of those for whom it just ain't summer before a big-time rock radio bash, listen up: Live 105 yesterday announced the lineup for its annual BFD concert, which goes down Sunday, June 5, at Shoreline. Your headliners: Multiplatinum rock-rap elders Linkin Park, whose 2010 album A Thousand Suns was declared to be their OK Computer in some circles of the music-crit blogosphere. 

No one will call this year's Angles the Strokes' OK Computer, but the New York skinnies are playing as well, along with Snoop Dogg (weird, eh?), Bad Religion, and a bunch of local bands we've told you about before, including the Limousines and Forrest Day.

Tickets for the all-day bash go on sale for Live 105 fans this Thursday; the general public can snag them starting at 10 a.m. on April 23. The full lineup below:

Linkin Park
Snoop Dogg
The Strokes
Cage the Elephant
Bad Religion
Neon Trees
The Airborne Toxic Event
Manchester Orchestra
Foster the People
Biffy Clyro
Middle Class Rut
Young the Giant

The Tenderlions
Saint John

Jeffrey Paradise
Miles the DJ
Dan B
I Am Empire
Forrest Day
K. Flay
Beta State

Have we said before how we have this weird affection for the music of Middle Class Rut? Because we do. Really.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
