Don’t get all “tangled up in blue” this summer, but do “search and destroy” some of the best music festival line ups to date. Two of the most influential musicians have been added to the Virgin Mobile Festival. Bringing one of America’s most favored songwriters and punk’s notoriously shocking, yet pleasing performer, Iggy and The Stooges. I’ve seen them both on separate occasions and it’s just fuckin’ amazing. Especially seeing Iggy still doing his energized acts just as if he were still at Max’s back in 1970. With Kanye West, Nine Inch Nails, The Black Keys, and the return of the Stone Temple Pilots, amongst other fine acts, this Baltimore based festival is lookin’ hot. Tickets go on sale May 3, 2008.
Absolutely epic video (below) from an Iggy and The Stooges performance last year in NYC. Up and personal, shows you just how crazy this 51 year-old punk icon still is. I get chills watching this vid, just knowing his history and what a contribution he has been to rock n’ roll as a whole.
