Imagine Dragons: They might have the approval of critics and the GRAMMY voters, but we still have a bone to pick with Imagine Dragons. Would it be so hard for you to get us real dragons so we don't have to imagine them? Seems like you're asking us to do all the work here, guys.
Steve Aoki: We're used to his shows involving crowd surfing (yay!) and cake throwing (aw, cake, no), but this electro-house DJ may pull off his best stunt ever. You see, he's booked for MIA fest in BOTH Philly and LA. A coast to coast race to rock your world? We'll be watching.
Kendrick Lamar: While he's made himself a few choice enemies in his short career, Kendrick Lamar isn't all shock. Hand-picked to open for Kanye and nominated for seven GRAMMYs in 2014, he's not lacking talent, swag or ways to get our attention.
John Mayer: Ah, the many shades of Mr. Mayer. Whether he’s sporting folky clothes and a stache, or playing the field (Corn fields, guys! Geez.) once he hits his first chord and croons, it’s game over. Take us back to the halls of your high school, John. We're always ready.
Sublime with Rome: Labor Day weekend may be the unofficial end to the summer, but that's an even better reason to rock out one more time to songs that are synonymous with the season. Sublime with Rome lets all of us belong in California, if only for three or four minutes at a time.
Mutemath: This is a band you have to see live. That may sound like a personal opinion, but no, it is written fact. The set starts off with drummer Darren King taping his headphones around his ears and it all kind of takes off from there. You cannot miss this one.
Cypress Hill: When Cypress Hill takes the stage in LA, we're sad to report it probably won't be with the London Symphony Orchestra. If you didn't get that reference to a classic Simpson's episode, you clearly need to learn more about history. Start by seeing Cypress Hill and we'll go from there.
Afrojack: It's hard to believe that this guy just dropped his first album in May 2014, after all he's already one of the highest earning DJs in the world. It is also hard to believe that he does not sport his namesake hairstyle, nor is his real name "Jack." Clearly, this is a complicated situation we've stumbled upon.
Dr. Dog: Not a Westie with a Ph.D. Actually, a rock group doing their best to keep the sounds of 1960's pop alive. And they all have nicknames that start with the letter "T." We're a little confused by that last part, but we'll roll with it.
