Nelsonville Music fest Announces Line-Up...

From Nelsonville Music Festival website:

Last night at Casa Cantina, we announced the headliners for this year's edition of the Nelsonville Music Festival to a packed house. Duke Jr. and the Smokey Boots, Scubadog, Whale Zombie and Chris Biester (all of whom will be making appearances at this year's fest) provided the music for the evening. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate the good news with us! If you couldn't manage to make it out last night, here's a day-by-day breakdown of the headliners for Nelsonville Music Festival 2011.

Friday night, we'll be welcoming country music legend George Jones to the main stage. At almost 80 years old, Jones shows no signs of slowing down and is sure to deliver a set encompassing his expansive discography.

On Saturday, psychedelic rockers the Flaming Lips will close out the night. The Lips are well-known for their high energy live shows, complete with confetti cannons and costumed dancers. Expect to hear tracks from their 2009 release Embryonic as well as their 1999 classic The Soft Bulletin.

Sunday evening, alt-country songstress Neko Case will deliver the festival's final set. Case is perhaps best known for work with Canadian super-group The New Pornographers, but fans will be pleased to find that her solo material is equally as powerful.

We'll be announcing over 30 more bands in the coming months, all leading up to the festival itself on the weekend of May 13-15. We're extremely excited and we hope you are too!
