Heady Links: Electric Zoo, Treasure Island, High Sierra 2012 & more…

The early-bird tickets for next year’s Electric Zoo Music Festival in NYC went on sale earlier this week and sold out in less than an hour, so make sure to pay attention over at their Twitter or Facebook pages to get the latest info if you’re going to the fest. Untz.

JamBase has a solid recap and photo gallery from this year’s Treasure Island Music Festival.

Save the date for next year’s High Sierra Music Festival: it’ll happen AFTER July 4th and will run July 5-8th, 2012. Can’t wait. This also means that there can be a lot of crossover between this and the Electric Forest lineup.

I loved these photos from Deadmau5 in Chicago via @cos_live.

Pitchfork totally digs on animated gifs just like we do. This post on the Altered Zones event in NYC is definitely a must-see.

I can never get enough of this Amon Tobin ISAM tour coverage; the photos that Greg Cristman took over at brooklynvegan are amazing. And he’s got two more nights left to show it off to the NYC crowd…

Mayer Hawthorne had to cancel his gig in Nashville last night because he was booked last minute to play the Late Show with David Letterman. He nailed it, though — Stereogum has the video clip of their performance of “The Walk.”

Finally, get funky and close out your day by rocking this KCRW session with Hercules And Love Affair over at NPR Music.
