VON BONDIES, SLOAN HEADLINE ROCK CITY FEST

Posted By on Wed, Apr 16, 2008 at 5:19 PM

Detour Magazine has finally released the schedule for its upcoming first Rock City music festival, which takes place June 12th through the 14th. In addition to numerous local unsigned acts, the festival will feature sets by Canadian popmeisters Sloan and a homecoming performance by the Von Bondies (although, at this point, it's hard to say what the exact lineup will be, as recent recruits Alicia Gbur and Matt Lanno have already left the band; the latest word is that bassist LeeAnn Banks and original drummer Don Blum are still on board).

Go here for a complete schedule.

In related news (well, sort of), the Raconteurs (who've released one of the best albums of '08 thus far) have scheduled a second D-town show at the Fillmore following the immediate sell-out of the first. The second show is slated for Sunday, June 8th. Tickets go on sale this Friday (April 18th) at 10 a.m.
