Boston Calling Announce Spring 2015 Line-Up

While everyone was sucked in by the cool unveil of the Bonnaroo line-up and every possible social media account around, another festival decided to unveil their own line-up as well.

Boston Calling will be holding its first of two annual music festivals during the weekend of May 22-24 at City Hall Plaza in downtown Boston with many names that seem to be making 2015 the year of their festival appearances.

Headlining the yearly event will be Beck, My Morning Jacket, and the Pixies while sub-headliners will include Tame Impala, St. Vincent, TV on the Radio, and Tenacious D.

Other acts confirmed for the weekend long event include: Gerard Way, Marina and the Diamonds, Vance Joy, Run the Jewels, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminal, Chet Faker, Jungle, The Lone Bellow, and current radio darling, Tove Lo.

Check out the festival’s video announcement below which, for some reason, reminds us of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” video. Maybe it’s the fake mustaches?

General admission tickets go on sale today (Wednesday, Jan. 14) beginning at noon on the festival’s website. Early Bird 3-day passes are $160, while those interested in 3-day VIP tickets will be put back $300.

Bob Dylan Announces Upcoming Tour

dylan

Bob Dylan announced yesterday that this Summer he’ll be doing what all the cool kids are doing and head out on his Americanarama Festival of Music. Along for the ride will be Wilco and My Morning Jacket.

The announcement came via Dylan’s website where the festival’s logo appeared with “Meet me there – Beat me there!” written. But Dylan, his band, Wilco and My Morning Jacket aren’t the only ones that will be performing; on selected dates, the Richard Thompson Electric Trio and Ryan Bingham will be joining the fun.

While news of this came as a nice surprise, it shouldn’t have come as one because last Thursday, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James sort of dropped the news during a Record Store Day interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

As of right now, the tour is slated to start on June 26th in West Palm Beach, FL and end on August 4th in Mountain View, CA. Tickets for the upcoming tour will start pre-sales on Wednesday, April 24.
