As if the lineup for Lollapalooza wasn’t good enough, San Francisco’s Outside Lands lineup is absolutely, ridiculously, amazingly, historically, one of the best lineups EVER in the history of man (ok, maybe Woodstock, could top it)!!!

Some many different genres, so many huge names, so many bands that are quickly rising, I feel a panic attack coming on. From Foo Fighters, to Stevie Wonder, to Metallica, to Neil Young, to Beck, to Jack White, to Alabama Shakes, to Fun, to Big Boi… and on and on… This year, Outside Lands will be held August 10-12. Check out the complete lineup below… and get pumped!

Last year at Outside Lands

Next tier of tickets goes on sale this Thursday, April 19, @12 PST, 3-day pass $195.

“Dream On”, new Video off of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds album

The old and founding member of Oasis, Noel Gallagher, has brought us a treat for the weekend. This incredibly done video brings Noel Gallagher’s lyrics to life. It really reminds me of why I instinctively liked Oasis, even though this is from his new project, ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’. It’s just one of those songs you can picture singing to with thousands of other fans, as you watch them playing live at some outdoor venue. You can catch him this summer at Coachella and on tour, see below for dates:

Hoping that Snoop Dogg’s announcement of ‘Reincarnated’ will push Dre to release his highly anticipated “Detox” album

Big Snoop Dogg has announced that he intends to release his 12th studio LP this year called ‘Reincarnated’. Even though Snoop put out two albums in 2011, ‘Doggumentary’ and ‘Mac & Devin Go To High School’ with Wiz Khalifa, the Doggfather continues working extra hard on his everlasting career. With this news, we are hoping that he sheds some clarity on his mentor Dr. Dre, in hopes to see ‘Detox’ out soon (we’ve only been waiting 10+ years)
See Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella this year Sunday April 13 and 22.
here’s a lil something to get you excited about Coachella…

New Dr. Dog album, “Be the Void”, available February 7, 2012

Dr. Dog fans are eagerly awaiting for the release of the bands 6th album, “Be the Void”. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Dog has been around the world energetically entertaining fans at festivals such as Coachella and High Sierra for over 10 years. Their psychedelic rock sound gets people up dancing, just letting the music take over.
With the new album “Be the Void”, Dr. Dog goes for more of a rock ‘n’ roll flavor rather than their familiar pop-funk-rock-jam band sound.
See them at the 22nd annual High Sierra Festival in Quincy, CA on June 5-8.
