    Well for the people that have not heard or do not know The Stone Roses yet, the best find of the year for you will definitely be The Stone Roses!

    I'm excited to see Divine Fits too. Britt Daniel from Spoon and Dan Boeckner from Wolf Parade seem to have a good sound live...

    Cloud Nothings are solid live. Good picks!

    I wonder if DIIV's sound will be good live, but I'm hopeful!

    My own:

    Dog Blood - I hate Skrillex, but Boyz Noize seems to be the primary contributer and the two songs they've put out are cool as hell.
    Jello Biafra - Not really a find being a Dead Kennedys fan, but I'm digging Audacity of Hype and can't wait to hear the new album. Freakin' Jello Biafra!
    The Evens - Anything with Ian MacKaye in it is generally worthwhile, and this looks like a winner.
    Wild Belle - I like her voice... Hope they will be good live.
    2/21 - Skinny Puppy
    5/23-25 - Summer Camp
    7/18-20 - Pitchfork Music Festival
    8/1-3 - Lollapalooza

    They put on a pretty good show...watch for the lead singer's OVER-sized Mickey Mouse shirt, it's a staple on their tour.

    I've seen DIIV twice (Opening for Wild Nothing and opening for Japandroids) and they were really fucking good. Don't miss them.

    Not really finnin Palma Violets from their youtube songs, but keen on the Birmingham bands Swim Deep ('Honey' has been my favorite song for weeks) and Jaws. Some good, young bands coming out of England again.

    Thought Palma Violets were ace this week, pre-ordered their album in fact
    To be honest they have a song called Chicken Dippers so I felt like i had to buy it anyway haha

    - Thee Oh Sees.

    - Parov Stelar.


    ^ These 2 made me stand up from the chair.

    Seen both of these shows in the past two months. Probably the 2 best shows I've seen in the past year!

    If you like any or all of the above: punk, rock, jumping around, moshing, sustained high energy - do NOT miss The Oh Sees

    If you like electronic, live instrumentation and vocals, swing, funk, dancing, jumping around, sustained high energy, and want to catch what is likely to be the best, most fun set of the entire weekend, do NOT miss Parov Stelar. Closing the Mojave is my guess because NO artist on Sunday could possibly follow their show and not appear extremely weak in comparison. This is how I plan on leaving the weekend on an extremely high note! Thank you GV!!!

    I have had a small grasp on Nick Cave & Grinderman, but have never been a full fledged "fan". But I've been bumping anything and everything Cave lately - I'm sincerely impressed with this human. You will see me at both shows, no doubt.

    Thanks to you sir I am now looking forward to this! Thanks
    Besides a bunch that have already been mentioned here, I am excited for Theophilus London's show. Very upbeat music. Get up and shake-yah-rump-with-your-girl music. Looking forward to see how well that energy translates to a live performance.

    Palma Violets - the Vaccines with thick accents like Glasvegas
    Skinny Lister/Shovels & Rope - two bands more talented than Mumford & Sons
    Savages - love me some British pop
    Birdy Nam Nam - that four turntables thing is pretty amazing
    The Colourist - not sure what I think about these guys. The female vocal tracks are pretty great. It seems like that's only about half of them.
