KROQ - Almost Acoustic Christmas 2014

Without a doubt, one of the best shows towards the end of each year is KROQ’s annual “Almost Acoustic Christmas” and 2014 is no different. The iconic LA-area radio station pulled out the big guns and enlisted a star-studded collection of bands including U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer and a reunion of System of a Down (!!!).

Some of the other bands playing the mini-fest include Linkin Park, Rise Against, Imagine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Bush, Royal Blood, Vance Joy, Walk the Moon, Tears for Fears, Modest Mouse, Interpol, Alt-J, and Incubus.

The concert will be held at the Forum in Inglewood, California on December 13th and 14th. Tickets for both nights go on sale Friday, November 14th at 12:00pm PT. Prices range from $75.00 – $150.00. Go to KROQ’s website for more info.

Chicago’s new home for Alternative Rock on the traditional airwaves, Q87.7, put together a one-day music festival that featured AWOLNATION, Sileversun Pickups, Atlas Genius, Bush and headlined by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

As if there weren’t enough reasons around that make summer in Chicago awesome, our local Alternative Rock (is that still technically the term/genre?) radio station Q87.7, has announced the launch of its first PIQNIQ festival. The new festival will take place at First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre on June 29.

What may be the most important part about this announcement is that the fest’s headliners will be the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who are making their only appearance in Chicago(land). Some of the other bands that will be heading over to Tinley are Bush, AWOLNATION, Silversun Pickups, Cold War Kids, and Atlas Genius among others.
