Coachella: SOLD OUT!

Posted in Music News, News with tags , , on Saturday, January 14, 2012 by Eric Gilardi

Coachella, the 3 day music festival in Indio, California, sold all of the 3 day passes, to both weekends, in just a few hours yesterday. This will leave festival goers that wanted to attend syphoning through Craigslist ads, online ticket brokers and eBay to try and purchase passes at an escalated price. With the addition of a second weekend this year you would have thought it would have been easier to obtain passes to this festival so this poses the question: Why not add a 3rd weekend or a 4th?

Here is the line up if you haven’t already checked it out:

Far signs a deal with Vagrant for ‘return’ fifth album

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , , , on Thursday, March 5, 2009 by Ryan Buege

Just a quick update for all of you who have been waiting for news since I posted that Far had reunited. Jonah, Shaun, Chris, and John have now announced that they’ve signed a deal with the reputtable Vagrant recording label. Also, accompanying this announcement was the great news that the band’s fifth long-player will be ready for public ears by the spring, the Southern Cali band’s first album in 12 years! From what I understand, Far had been looking to return to the edgier post-hardcore sound that they enjoyed on Tins Cans.. and their earlier albums. After watching Jonah dabble in the softer side of folk and emo for the last decade, it should be riveting to see him really rocking again. Here’s the word from Jonah:

“We had no idea all this would happen. We were just planning on getting to know each other again and playing a few shows, in between everything else we’ve got going on. But now, all of a sudden, the songs are coming, and it feels really good. All we’ve ever promised as people and as a band is that whatever we put out, whenever we come around, we’re gonna mean it.”

Punk legend Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys came out to Fucked Up’s recent San Francisco show and they invited him onstage (as I’m sure many bands do when they find out Jello is in the club in SF) to play this Ramones cover of “Blitzkrieg Bop”. Brilliant stuff!

In other news, Fucked Up just started streaming the song “Year of the Rat” from their upcoming 12″ single that will be released on What’s Your Rupture. Check it here!
