Austin fans, take note: tUnE-yArDs are taping an episode of Austin City Limits soon (May 29th) and they’re giving away a few passes to the taping if you want to get down. Head here to get the deets.

Break Science was just in SF this past Friday night and they’ve got a slew of dates announced that will keep them on the road this summer. They’re playing Summer Camp, Wakarusa, Mountain Jam and tons more slots; see the dates here.

In case you missed it last week, the folks at Cloud 9 announced yet another music excursion called Strings & Sol. On December 12th through the 16th, Yonder Mountain String Band, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon and The Infamous Stringdusters will be rocking some white sandy beaches in Mexico and bringing bluegrass down to resort-going fans that will undoubtably snatch up rooms and sell out this mini-festival right quick.

Japandroids and Chromatics have been added to the Pitchfork Music Festival lineup.
