We're staring down the barrel of a "massive" April snow storm, so you're forgiven for not being in a garden-rocking mindset.
But, in the news biz, we can't dance around those weather-induced peculiarities, so here's an undeniable fact: Rock the Garden—89.3 the Current and Walker Art Center's annual music festival—just dished deets on 2019's edition.
Indie-rock greats the National will headline the June 29 fest outside the Walker, with support from witty Aussie rocker/returning RTG champ Courtney Barnett and L.A. punk legends X.
Also performing: Har Mar Superstar/Sabrina Ellis vehicle Heart Bones; Rhymesayers rapper Dem Atlas; local indie-pop stars Bad Bad Hats; moody Nashvillian blues-rocker Adia Victoria; and pop-punk band the Beths, another Australian import.
The official CP take? Extremely solid—a fun, engaging, diverse lineup, plus fanatic National dads will stampede the box office.
Speaking of, $69 tickets (nice) are on sale now for Current and Walker members. Prices get hiked $5 for the public sale, which begins at 10 a.m. on Thursday. VIP passes—skybox views, three drink tickets, free food, T-shirt, merciful air conditioning—will run ya $300.
