When Sweetgreen announced its 2012 Sweetlife Festival, I wasn’t exactly thrilled by its mostly bland, “indie” but inoffensive tasting menu of a mainstage lineup. I feel better about what’s been booked for The Treehouse, the event’s second stage: Americana ramblers Delta Spirit, hypnagogic disco purveyor Twin Shadow, art-goth wailer Zola Jesus, insufferable sophistipop party starters The Knocks, stalwart indie remixer RAC, local classic-rock pasticheurs U.S. Royalty, Malaysian future crossover Yuna, a close harmony trio named after Corey Haim named Haim, Citi-advertisement soundtracker LP, Cut Copy‘s Ben Browning, and local experimental pop duo Bluebrain. I count six examples of hype-machine style over substance. But I’m cool with the rest of it—-and I’m glad to see Bluebrain on such a relatively large platform.

The mainstage lineup, you’ll remember, includes AviciiKid CudiThe ShinsExplosions in the SkyFitz and the Tantrumsfun., and A$AP Rocky.

Tickets to the Sweetgreen-sponsored concert are $75-$125.
