So the lineup for this year's Jazz Fest has been announced, and just like with Folk Fest, the festival's name is strictly nominal, actually including artists from a wide variety of genres: jazz, indie rock, blues, roots, folk and so on.
That being said, Jazz Fest features a solid indie-rock lineup including Stars and The New Pornographers performing on separate nights at Pantages Playhouse. Stars will be there on June 20th while The New Pornographers play June 24th. Each show is $28, but as a special reward for die-hard indie-rock fans, ticketmaster is offering a $49 package deal for both events.
Shout Out Out Out Out (why four?) is at the Pyramid on June 26th.
Prairie Oyster is at the WECC on May 26th.
Current rotation: Montreal/Boston
