Big day for lineup announcements, huh? 

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which will again span two weekends this spring (April 10-12 and April 17-19) in Indio, announced its lineup today.

As usual, it's a behemoth of a list, which is probably best perused on the flyer below. Headliners include Jack White, Drake, and AC/DC; non-headliners we're excited about include Azealia Banks, Raekwon and Ghostface, Tyler the Creator, FKA Twigs, Father John Misty, Mac DeMarco, Run the Jewels, the War on Drugs, Perfume Genius, Angel Olsen, St. Vincent, Panda Bear, Charles Bradley, locals Tycho, Toro y Moi, and Lil B, and a couple of reunions: seminal San Diego punks Drive Like Jehu and British shoegazers Ride. 

Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Jan. 7, at 12 noon PST. General admission passes (most of which are already sold out) are $375; VIP passes go for $899. Then there's every possible permutation of lodging and shuttles and parking, all of which can take you up to the $3,000- $5,000 range. And that doesn't even include drugs!

Between this and BottleRock, it's clearly time to start making some Festival Season decisions, friends — if for no other reason than you need to get started shopping for this year's #Festival #Fashion. Brb, pulling our fringey halter top thing out of storage.

  • 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.'"
