Yep! It’s time to stop rewriting the lyrics to “Range Life” with references to your enemies! FreeFest is today! We’ve already told you about the best acts you’ll see there—-a lineup that includes Pavement, LCD Soundsystem, M.I.A., Sleigh Bells, Neon Indian, Joan Jett, and many others—-and, with the release of the official schedule, what order to see them in.
Though we generally loathe to cover concerts in any traditional sense, we’ll be all over FreeFest, tweeting, taking pics, shooting video, and if things get really desperate, taking notes in an actual notebook. If you couldn’t get free tickets or couldn’t stomach paying $150 for the prestige ones, we feel you. Keep up with all the action, and be the first to hear about whatever crazy shit M.I.A./Stephen Malkmus/Ludacris banters about, by following us on Twitter at @citypapermusic. I’ll be tweeting all day too, as will my colleagues Chris Klimek, Erica Bruce, and Ramon Ramirez. Or just scroll through the handy widget below!
