X-Fest

Saturday

  • Alexisonfire: a post-hardcore quintet known for bringing the genre to the mainstream in Canada, as well as sounding like “two Catholic high-school girls in mid-knife-fight”—also the topic of their song “A Dagger Through the Heart of St. Angeles”
  • Tenacious D: As much as Jack Black and Kyle Gass poke fun at metal and classic rock, they also have respect for both genres, as exhibited on their 2012 comeback, Rize of the Fenix. Live, their profane lyrics about demons, groupies, and tearing down City Hall will make you want to giggle, even as their tasty licks will make you want to head-bang. See if you can do both at the same time.
  • The Flaming Lips: the patron saints of spiritual weirdness, the Flaming Lips grew a cult following through such experiments as Zaireeka, a set of four discs designed to be played simultaneously, but broke into the mainstream with Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots in 2002. In their latest, they reimagined Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in the tribute album With a Little Help from My Fwends
  • Also appearing: Mother Mother | Tokyo Police Club | The Rural Alberta Advantage | Big Data | Eagles of Death Metal | The Elwins | The Zolas

Sunday

  • Ellie Goulding: teetering between transcendent electro-pop and down-to-earth folk music, this breathy British singer is best known for her work with Calvin Harris and the song “Love Me Like You Do” from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack
  • Hozier: a rising star out of Ireland, he combines social criticism with the blues on “Take Me to Church,” which challenges Catholicism’s stance on homosexuality
  • Brandon Flowers: He’s the lead singer of The Killers, the neo-new wave hitmakers behind “Somebody Told Me” and “When You Were Young.” He’s also carved out a solo career with two critically acclaimed albums, including 2015’s The Desired Effect.
  • Also appearing: TV on the Radio | Kongos | St. Lucia | k-os | Robert Delong | Young Empires | Gay Nineties
