Dylan, Rac, Gnarls at Pitt Fest

Bob Dylan, The Raconteurs, Gnarls Barkley, Spoon, The Black Keys Play Pittsburgh's
New American Music Union Festival Curated by Anthony Kiedis

Sponsored by American Eagle Outfitters, curated by Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis and featuring a college battle of the bands might not be the ideal way to bill a fest, but the lineup for the New American Music Union Festival looks pretty darn good.

The new event takes place at Pittsburgh's South Side Works Town Square on August 8 and 9. Set to play for Pitt are Bob Dylan and His Band, Spoon, Gnarls Barkley, The Raconteurs, The Roots, The Black Keys, Black Mountain, The Duke Spirit and lots more, including a bunch of college bands you've never heard of, but that doesn't mean they won't be huge one day... maybe.

Interesting, may have to look into this. Not expecting AE to team up with any of these acts.

I think its good to have a avenue for new bands. You get to share the stage with some experienced monsters, and might get to shine as well. More music festivals are always a good thing.
