Treasure Island 2009 was announced at some point recently, and the line-up looks sick. I’m not quite the biggest indie kid round these parts, but it’s worth the price tag alone to go check out The Flaming Lips on Sunday.
On the other side of things, the electro-pop artists are bad ass, as they’ve got chart toppers MGMT, Girl Talk and a slew of other noticeables. $65 is a bit much in this economy, but hell, what’s more American than running up a huge credit card bill you can’t legitimately pay off?
Come October 17th and 18th, the Treasure Island Music Festival will return to San Francisco’s Treasure Island for its third go around. This particular year promises to feature two days of â€œstellar and diverseâ€ music, with Saturday geared more toward the electric side of things, while Sunday will offer an indie-like feel.
As a result, the folks behind Treasure Island have tapped MGMT, MSTRKRFT, Girl Talk, Dan Deacon, Passion Pit, Brazilian Girls, LTJ Bukeum, DJ Krush, Murs, Frederico Aubele, The Streets, The Limousines and Crown City Rockers for Saturday and The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, Beirut, Yo La Tengo, Bob Mould, Grizzly Bear, Sprial Stairs, Sleepy Sun, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, Tommy Guerrero, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeroes, Veviter and The Walkmen for Sunday.
