Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – J. Roddy Watson & the Business

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – J. Roddy Watson & the Business

I wasn’t shit-faced yet when we saw J. Roddy Watson & the Business play Willie Nelson’s ranch but I was damn close when I dragged Danny and Aimee from the shoreline ease to see the last few songs of their set in Philly opening for the ‘Mats recently so I...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – White Lung

No one does the whirlwind quite like White Lung and that definitely makes them the odd ducks of the Gov Ball Lineup but I have a sneaking suspicion they couldn’t really give a good, gut fuck because they know that they’ll do more to slack the jaws of the pretty...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Charli XCX

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Charli XCX

Listening, I know most folks won’t need me to sell them a load of crushing on Charli XCX (who pretty much MADE every hell-yes party jam of the last few summers) but I’m going to anyway because I never get to talk about Charli XCX in these pages and that’s...

Governors Ball 2015 Artist Spotlight – Priory

Anglophiles be damned. The point is we won that particular war of attrition and...

Governors Ball Announces 2015 Lineup, Reaffirms Awesomeness

I’m trying not to swear today but all y’all should have a good sense of how I’m feeling towards those old fools in Indio scooping Drive Like Jehu like it was no big deal and shoving them neck deep in the dust, mud and future pensioners of America. So let’s...

Oh, MAN ALIVE! Governors Ball is coming. GOVERNORS BALL IS COMING! JUNE 5-7th, 2015! Have you been? We sent Charles the last two years and other than almost drowning that one time (or maybe because of it), we can safely report back that NYC’s ONLY homegrown (and massive) music festival...
