Matador Records is throwing a big party in Las Vegas to celebrate their 21st birthday. Past and present Matador acts will play over 3 days (October 1-3) at the Palm Resort and Casino. Not to brag, but I have one of the coveted tickets to the, as they are calling it, “Lost Weekend” and I’m even more excited now that the line up has been announced. Belle and Sebastian! Spoon! Cat Power! Ted Leo! Yahoooo.
Here’s the line up and I plan on reporting back with updates from the scene.
Belle And Sebastian
The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Times New Viking
Guided By Voices
Yo La Tengo
The New Pornographers
Ted Leo & the Pharmacists
