MBV will also curate the fest. So far, frontman Kevin Shields has recruited four artists to perform classic records in their entirety, with Tortoise's Millions Now Living Will Never Die, Built to Spill's Perfect From Now On, Thurston Moore's solo Psychic Hearts and the Meat Puppets' ...  | More »

    To headline Saturday night of Coachella, Prince reportedly commanded a royal fee: $4.8 million. That's even more than what Middle Eastern countries give Michael Jackson to show up. "Prince was a late, late addition to the line-up," a source tells Perez Hilton. "The promoters added him to try and sell more tickets and make up for a less than stellar — in comparison to years past — roster of performers." The expensive acquisition paid off, as tickets for Saturday sold out less ...  | More »

    Coachella organizers announced today that Prince has been added to this year's festival and will headline the second night, April 26th. Portishead was previously announced at the Saturday night headliner. The addition of the Purple One adds some serious clout to a festival that was criticized for lacking the bold-faced headliners of Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and All Points West. Prince's performance will mark the first time the artist has ever appeared at the Indio, California event. ...  | More »

  • SXSW Day Four Wrap-Up: Jim James, The Breeders, She & Him, Robyn

    You could see the crowds of 6th Street in the distance from the window of Jim James' solo gig, but that was as close as the Mardi Gras atmosphere of SXSW encroached to this special show on the festival's final night. Inside the music hall of St. David's Episcopal Church, it was calm as a chamber music recital as the My Morning Jacket frontman performed gorgeous acoustic versions of his band's most spiritual songs. He put aside his guitar and placed a small keyboard on his ...  | More »

    Thurston Moore demonstrated all sorts of guitar heroics at Friday night's Ecstatic Peace showcase at the Mohawk Patio. The rock legend/label mastermind spent the night prepping to play his own headlining set while shepherding the rest of the lineup's acts through trouble — reassuring Be Your Own Pet when their sound went dead; adjusting the treble on J Mascis' amp ("Much better!" he mouthed). Though he was often visible lurking side-stage, when Moore stepped up for his s...  | More »
