Good morning! And what a good morning it is! We've got some major news to share with you regarding the Westword Music Showcase. We've just solidified the lineup for our Showcase, which takes place this year on Saturday, June 18, and it's pretty stellar if we do say so ourselves. Click through to see what you're in for...

How about a little Chromeo, Yo La Tengo, Del the Funky Homosapien with a full band, some Murder By Death, Young the Giant, Epilogues and Ume? Oh yeah, and, as always, a slew of the top local acts on stages spread throughout our Golden Triangle neighborhood!

The best part? You get it all for the shockingly low price of only ten bucks! Yep. That's right: Ten simoleons, as that eSurance dude would say. Well, that is, if you get your tickets before Monday, when they officially go on sale. (Stay tuned. We'll tell you how and when to get the jump.) Then they're $15, and they'll only go up from there to $30, if you wait until the last minute, which isn't advised, considering this thing sold out last year with a quickness. Hello, summer! Here we come!

Whoever books this showcase every year is either pocketing a lot of cash and booking as someone else said on here "marginal bands" at best, or they just don't know what they are doing. In all fairness, you could have booked a much larger act and ditched the aging rapper, the Not so hip hipster bands and really had a great headliner. All the years prior to this one are a blur anyways, but Westword has never had the ability to spot up and coming bands. If only someone like Scott Cambell was in charge of booking or even Ben Desoto, we might see a good line up, but I guess this will have to do for the time being. I'll be there nonetheless.

Bravo. I'd have flipped Del and Yo La Tengo, but it'll be a blast all the same. And who said that it saves them money for better bands coming through? Ten bucks bro, ten bucks. I have unemployed artist friends who can find ten bucks. This is generally the best Saturday of the summer, just saying.

This lineup is marginal. I want more glam pop rock!

Last year was so good, but this lineup is a let down. Oh well saves me money for all the good acts coming to town this year.

Chromeo is fantastic and so is Del. Furthermore he is about to drop Deltron 3030 Event II, and him performing with a full band sounds awesome. Don't go if you think the line-up sucks. Because those two acts alone are worth a $40 ticket and they are selling them for $15 plus you get a ton of locals as well. Its pretty hypocritical to say "oh all these bands are crap but oh well I'm gonna go anyway" It also makes you sound like a hipster.
