On May 1, at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, KDGE-102.1 FM The Edge will hold its 20th Edgefest concert since 1992.

And, believe me, it feels a little weird saying this, but, unlike the disappointing lineups of recent years past, the lineup the station announced yesterday evening ain't looking all that bad! No, seriously!

(Please stop laughing.)

Sure, the main stage is pretty lame--a lineup of Three Days Grace, 30 Seconds to Mars, the Deftones, Flyleaf, Switchfoot and 10-Years (who?) being capped off by a reunion performance from Limp Bizkit? No thanks.

But, hey! There's a second stage! And, dammit, that one's kinda looking like a winner. Check it out after the jump...

Phoenix? Metric? Cage The Elephant? Not bad at all! Not sure who Violent Soho, The Crash Kinds Kings and Neon Trees are, but those top three are all winners in my book.

And, hell, if I get drunk enough and remember to bring my red, fitted Yankees cap, there might even be a certain kitsch value to seeing Limp Bizkit! Probably not, though.

Anyway, back to the point: Phoenix!

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
