Incoming: Built To Spill, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Frightened Rabbit, Ratatat

Built To Spill fans rejoice! You don't have to pay for Kings of Leon tickets to see your favorite band come this October. You do, however, have to go to the Marquee Theatre to watch them play. Well, absolutely anything is better than having to watch Kings of Leon at Cricket Wireless Pavilion in July, am I right?

Once upon a time, a certain Icelandic volcano put the kibosh on plans for Scottish rockers Frightened Rabbit to play Coachella (which, depending on your attitude towards this year's installation, could have been a blessing in disguise) and Tempe's Clubhouse soon after. Well, you can now suck it, Eyjafjallajokull because Frightened Rabbit will finally make their way to Tempe this October. Joining them are Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Ratatat, Train and David Cassidy (be still my gentle heart!).
