NYC's answer to Bonnaroo - Governors Ball Music Festival happens this weekend. 

The festival starts this Friday at goes till Sunday. Bands begin playing at noon and end at 11:30, so it is an all day affair and the line up this year is stellar! 

Here is a small sample of who will be playing:

  • Kings of Leon
  • Local Natives
  • Dinosaur Jr.
  • Dirty Projectors
  • The Avett Brothers
  • Divine Fits
  • and even...GNR! Guns & Roses.

 

They've certainly got some big names on the bill, but on today's Alternate Side Report, I thought I'd shed a little light on one of the lesser known bands playing: Pacific Air. 

This Southern California duo consists of brothers Ryan and Taylor Lawhorn. They put out a great EP last year called, Long Live KOKO (The band was formerly known as KOKO) & They'll be releasing their full length debut, Stop Talking next week. 

You can listen to one of their songs here & download a free MP3 from the band's website if you want to hear more.
