Since they’ve been a hot topic around here lately, you might like to know that Pearl Jam has been tabbed as one of the headliners of the Outside Lands Festival, a three-day festival taking place in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park in late August. The lineup is, to say the least, eclectic: Tom Jones, the Black Eyed Peas, Raphael Saadiq, the Dead Weather, Incubus, M.I.A. and the Dave Matthews Band are also on the bill. Something for everybody, I guess. Full lineup after the jump!
Confirmed Dead or Alive abuser / alleged rabbit abuser Flo Rida will make his Today debut during this summer’s installment of the morning show’s Summer Concert Series (now entering its 14th year!). “I’m getting goosebumps just even thinking about it,” he said of the appearance. “I always do something real big every time I get on TV, but since this is my first time on Today I definitely have to set the mark very high.” That actually makes him sound kind of humble and sweet. Darn you, Flo Rida, making me like you! In other news, the Dave Matthews Band will make its first appearance with Ann Curry and Co. This is made even more surprising by the fact that All-American Rejects will be making their third appearance. Full lineup after the jump!
The controversy over departed Dave Matthews Band saxophonist LeRoi Moore being left out of the Grammys’ “In Memoriam” video package Sunday night continued to burn this morning, with Matthews himself saying “I don’t care much for anything about the Grammies” on his Twitter account.

(This festival’s concession to the tough economic times: Discount packages! But don’t worry, those of you who still want to live large can
overspend on indulge in a VIP setup.) Huge list of names—which is only a partial lineup!—after the jump.

If it’s Tuesday, it’s time to find out about the latest entrant into the more-crowded-than-ever 2008 festival lineup! Say hello to the brand-new Mile High Music Festival, which is headlined by Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, and John Mayer; it’s scheduled to take place July 19 and 20 in a park that’s nine miles outside of downtown Denver. (For those of you marking calendars, yes, that’s the same weekend as the Pitchfork Music Festival. So much for Petty playing Full Moon Fever on Friday night in Chicago!) The current announced lineup–which, be warned, bills OneRepublic above the Roots–after the jump.
