Umm, so umm, you youngsters enjoy this week’s #1. One of the best Edgefest lineups in years, I think. Friday and Saturday are pretty stacked
1 Edgefest @ Toyota Stadium (Frisco) Sat 4/25/15
Edgefest, the annual festival put on by 102.1 the Edge has a pretty solid lineup this year, including the Offspring, Modest Mouse, Death Cab for Cutie, Hozier, AWOLNation, Vance Joy, Banks, New Politics, Robert DeLong and Girl Talk. Should be a good time.

Joy Division bassist stops by with his current band, performing classic Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer in full.
3 Matt and Kim w/ Waters @ House of Blues (Dallas) Fri 4/24/15
One of indie rock’s favorite couples, Matt and Kim, always put on a heck of a show. Opening act Waters are up and coming and not so bad themselves.
