We blogged before about MtyMx, New York tastemaker and promoter Todd P's upcoming music festival in Monterrey, Mexico. Now the final lineup has been announced for the all-ages weekend bender of music, art, and Mexican culture. The three-day fest with an international lineup runs from March 20-22 and includes sets by headliners Acid Mothers Temple, Andrew WK, Dan Deacon, Fucked Up, Neon Indian, Husker Du's Grant Hart, Lairs, and No Age. But among the sweet picks for this party are a number of Bay Area acts: Thee Oh Sees, the Mantles, the Sandwitches, Baths, Hunx and His Punx, Young Prisms, and former San Franciscans Lemonade. Also on the bill, NY DJ Jonathan Toubin, who has brought his popular Soul Clap dance-offs to San Francisco with great success.

Not only is the lineup crazy good (full list after the jump), but this post-SXSW bender is super cheap. Three days of non-stop music and dancing will only set you back $30 (single day tickets are $15). And the concert offers plenty for your eyes as well as your ears from the sound of things. It's being staged in an old drive-in on the side of a mountain, and the promoters are planning murals and video installations for the March weekend.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
