Day 1: DEATH FROM ABOVE 1979

Sure the Foo Fighters are the big draw for the opening evening, but don't make the mistake of getting a hotdog when this ferocious duo take the stage for the first time in Washington since '04. Turning punk into a hook laced dance party, Death From Above will deliver an unforgiving set that will leave you sweaty and searching for the merch tent to pick up their record. Check out their triumphant return at Coachella a few months ago below.



DAY 2: WYE OAK

Another duo, Wye Oak channel your unfocused inner thoughts into a stream of bends and breaks, breathy vocals and tug of the heartstring songwriting. The soundtrack to that lost-in-your-mind dialogue, Wye Oak will melt you and bake you new. Doesn't hurt that singer Jenn Wasner is a badass guitar player and a babe all rolled into one.



DAY 3: BEACH HOUSE

If you made it out to Vampire Weekends abortion of a Marymoore Park show last summer, you already know what a treat Beach House are. Dream Pop with a dash of Zanex, the group churn out a sound that could quite easily carry you into the clouds as quickly as it could close your eyes and push you to sway along. Plus one can only imagine this will be a great set to couple up, grab hold of the cutie you've been eying and pull them close.



DAY 4: WILCO

Simply put, Wilco are just the perfect way to cap off a long weekend baking in the sun. Like they slipped into your skin, each song perfectly fills some sort of void you never had any idea existed to begin with. Paralleling perfectly your meandering emotions, through brilliantly honest and wonderfully crafted tunes. Wilco might be a bit soft for some but once you get past the initial slowburn, you'll be glad you stuck around.
