The first installment of the "musix mix-perience" in San Diego kicks off this week and we've got 15 artists you'll definitely want to make time to catch.
Foster the People
Lollapalooza has announced details for its South American locations and the first-ever European event.
Isom Innis has had a busy year touring and playing with Foster the People. However, the Los Angeles artist shows that he still has some things up his sleeve with his latest solo track, 'Freak Show.'
Foster the People's latest single features the eyebrow-raising title of 'Pseudologia Fantastica.' For those of you who are too busy to check Wikipedia or someplace that can fill you in on what this pretentious mess of words means, we did the heavy lifting: It's a fancy name for pathological lying.
In their new video for 'Coming of Age,' Foster the People confront maturity with a series of scenes that may or may not bring back some painful and awkward high-school memories. There's even a sexy older woman whose mere presence makes a little kid's ice cream cone slip limply from his hand.
Delaware’s Firefly Festival, back for its second consecutive year, is set to take place at the Woodlands of Dover International Speedway from June 21-23. The three-day affair, led by headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, boasts performances by Vampire Weekend, Foster the People and dozens more.
Foster the People's breakthrough smash 'Pumped Up Kicks' was pulled from many radio stations in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Conn., which left 26 people dead, most of them young children. The song was a point of contention, due to the lyrics "You better run, better run / Outrun my gun / You better run, better run / Faster than my bullet." The band has responded to the song being temporarily removed from the airwaves.
Following last week's tragic school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., Foster the People's breakthrough smash 'Pumped Up Kicks' has apparently been removed from the playlist at Los Angeles radio station KIIS-FM. The song touches on school violence and famoulsy features the lyrics, "All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, / You better run, better run, outrun my gun / All the other kids with the pumped up kicks, / You better run, better run, faster than my bullet."
