If you spent your formative years in the mid-late aughts, chances are the following lineup is going to make you FEEL a WAY. Descending from the sky to Queen Mary Park in Long Beach on Saturday, May 4 for her inaugural soiree, behold, Just Like Heaven.
Just Like Heaven features every artist I had in heavy rotation on my breakup, makeup, and makeout mix CDs in high school, their shiny silver covers adorned with rainbow Sharpie doodles. Indie juggernaut headliners Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House, and Passion Pit's highly anticipated Manners 10th Anniversary couple with equally dazzling lower billings, and the touches of dance music that hallmarked the era - Miike Snow, STRFKR, Washed Out. The recent cultural infatuation with the 2000's makes Just Like Heaven, in all of its throwback wonder, even that much more timely. In our harsh current reality, it doesn't get much better than this.
Passes are on sale this Friday, February 8 at 10AM and can be purchased here.
