With a lineup that included Fitz and the Tantrums' blue-eyed soul, Explosions in the Sky's hypnotic post-rock, U.S. Royalty's cock-rock, Kid Cudi's sensitive-dude hip-hop, and Avicii's glittery EDM, there was a little something for everyone across the [...]

Salad chain Sweetgreen's third annual Sweetlife Festival—its second at Merriweather Post Pavillion—takes places this Saturday, and the event's organizers have just revealed the hour-to-hour schedule. So: some advice! Straightahead indie fans will have to make some hard choices, seeing as The Shins' mainstage set overlaps with Zola Jesus' and Twin Shadow's in the Treehouse (Sweetlife's second [...]
