Lincoln Calling
by Tim McMahan,

Jeremy Buckley posted 50 more bands/performers/DUs booked for the 10th Annual Lincoln Calling — one of the area’s longest running local music festivals, slated for Oct. 15-19 in 10 venues throughout the Lincoln metroplex.

Among the new additions that raised an eyebrow — and will likely have me traveling to Lincoln — is Future Islands, whose performance at The Waiting Room back in 2011 was one of my favorite shows that year.

Buckley plans to add one more band to the line-up to make the total a perfect 100. Here are the additions announced yesterday:

All Young Girls Are Machine Guns
Allie Kral of Cornmeal
Bass Coma
Burning Down the Villager
Cake Eater
Chris Padgett of the Stereofidelics
Cory Kibler

DJ Brake-C

Jeremy tells me that tomorrow is the last day all-access passes will be available for $20 (inside of the Bourbon at Kinetic Brew during day time business hours). After tomorrow passes go up to $40, which is still a great deal, but why spend $20 when you don’t have to?
