WEQX released the music lineup for this year's PearlPalooza (you know, sort of like LarkFest, but... more east? more downtown?). There are two stages -- one for national acts, the other for locals.
PearlPalooza is September 24 from noon - 9 pm. It's free.
Lineups after the jump.
All descriptions from EQX press release
MUTEMATH: Declared by the Alternative Press as "the #1 band you need to see live before you die," they've performed at some of the country's largest festivals including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo and Coachella. MUTEMATH have contributed
to the soundtracks for both Transformers and Twilight. Their new album Odd Soul will be released on October 4th, 2011.
Company of Thieves: A lively, soulful Chicago based band, always an audience favorite, return to the capital region highlighting songs from their new album Running From A Gamble, and revisiting favorites from their debut Ordinary Riches.
DOM: With warped vocals, fuzzy low-fi distortion, and broken Casio keyboard lines, Dom filters a DIY aesthetic through the upbeat, sunny rhythms of pop music. In a word: fun!
Black Taxi: Brooklyn based indie rock recognized as much for their wide-ranging musical influences and backgrounds as they are for their animated live performances. Dance-Punk and Big-Wave dominate the foursome's Grit-Pop sound.
A Million Years: A Brooklyn based band that wear their love of guitar driven indie rock on their sleeve. Stimulated by the intellectualism and sonic experimentation of bands like Radiohead, Spoon and Wilco, they strive to create a world of smart, brooding characters wandering around in our digitized soundscape.
Additional acts on the main stage TBA.
