Nick Pickles/WireImageThe Decemberists have jumped on the festival bandwagon with a special event of their own.

The popular indie-folk group is curating Traveler’s Rest, set for August 12 & 13 at Big Sky Brewing Company Amphitheatre in Missoula, Montana. In addition to the Decemberists themselves, the festival will feature sets from Belle and Sebastian, The Head and the Heart, Real Estate, Shakey Graves, Sylvan Esso, Julien Baker and Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, with more acts to be announced.

In a typically tongue-in-cheek announcement posted on their website, the band notes the festival is named after an historical site located a few miles south of the venue, “where Lewis & Clark were known to have made camp and put on their own two-day music festival. It received mixed reviews.”

The post further notes that since Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy was born and raised in Montana, he's “tremendously excited to be putting this event together for Montanans as well as everyone in the region."

The statement continues, "Having been your typical moody, navel-gazing teenager, he often bemoaned the lack of national bands that toured through his home state and is naturally awfully proud to be doing his small part to bring a bit more music to Montana.”

Tickets for Traveler's West go on sale Friday. One dollar from each ticket purchased will be donated to the Montana chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. Full details can be found online.

Jeff Hahne/Getty ImagesPassion Pit fans have a chance to both hear new music from the band and put on their thinking caps.

According to Spin, the indie-electro group’s Twitter feed has been given over for the day to Broad Institute neuroscientist Michael F. Wells, who’s visiting Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to discuss federal funding for science and research.

Go to Passion Pit’s Twitter account and retweet Wells’ posts, with the hashtag #weneedscience.  If you do, you'll receive a digital download of an album’s worth of new material dubbed Tremendous Sea of Love that Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos posted on YouTube earlier this year, but has since removed.

Passion Pit’s most recent studio album was 2015’s Kindred. The Tremendous Sea of Love videos were posted by The Wishart Group, a project started by Angelakos that seeks to support musicians via legal, educational and healthcare services, with a focus on mental health.

Frank Hoensch/RedfernsIndie rock legend Thurston Moore is gearing up for a new solo release.

According to Rolling Stone, the former Sonic Youth guitarist will issue his fifth solo album, Rock n Roll Consciousness, on April 28.

Moore co-produced the new five-song disc with Paul Epworth, known for his work with pop stars like Adele and Rihanna. Moore is joined by his current backing band: My Bloody Valentine bassist Deb Googe, guitarist James Sedwards and Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley.

The songs’ lyrics were penned by poet Radio Radieux, with the exception of the first single, "Smoke of Dreams." The song’s video is a moody, impressionistic trip through New York city that builds in intensity along with the music.

Moore and band will be touring at various times throughout the year, including a brief North American run in May.

Noel Vasquez/Getty ImagesJune marks the 25th anniversary of Sublime’s debut album, and the band’s surviving members are staging a sudsy celebration.

According to Rolling Stone, bassist Eric Wilson and drummer Bud Gaugh have signed off on a limited edition Mexican-style lager beer named after that album: 40oz. to Freedom. The brew will be bottled in 40-ounce containers and sold locally by San Diego-based AleSmith Brewing Company before being rolled out nationally.

Troy Holmes, widow of Sublime’s late frontman, Bradley Nowell, is also on board, commenting, "Being a beer lover…I know Sublime fans will absolutely love it!”

The Sublime team also has two film projects in the works. The first is an authorized documentary designed to tell the “real” story of the ska-punk trio that exploded out of Long Beach, California. Also in the pipeline is a dramatic biopic about the group.

On a more musical note, Sublime plans to reissue the band’s 1995 EP, Badfish, on vinyl for the first time for Record Story Day on April 22.

Last summer, Sublime issued Van Box Set, a comprehensive 13-disc vinyl collection featuring the band’s three studio albums, a compilation album, two live discs and the 1991 cassette release, Jah Won’t Pay the Bills.

The Spring edition of the celebration of independent record stores is set for Saturday, April 22. Pearl Jam fans can grab a seven-inch single featuring the tracks "Breath" and “State of Love and Trust,” both of which appeared on the soundtrack to director Cameron Crowe’s 1992 film, Singles.  That movie also featured cameos from PJ as members of the fictional band Citizen Dick.

Alice in Chains’ Record Store Day special is a gatefold sleeve featuring two different seven-inch singles. The first includes “What the Hell Have I" and "A Little Bitter," both from the soundtrack to the 1993 Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Last Action Hero. The second single contains "Get Born Again" and "Died," the band's final recordings with their original singer, the late Layne Staley.

Coheed and Cambria fans can purchase a limited-edition remastered version of the band’s 2005 album, Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness, being issued on vinyl for the first time as a two-disc set with an exclusive splatter design.

Another Record Store Day offering is the two-album set Live at George’s Club 20, a document of Jimi Hendrix’s shows from December 1965 and January 1966 when he was a sideman for soul singer Curtis Knight.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day and art-rocker St. Vincent is serving as ambassador for the April 22 edition.

Mary Kouw/CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting IncRock and Roll Hall of Famers Green Day appeared on The Late Show Tuesday night.

As host Stephen Colbert stood in front of the band ready to introduce them, he was interrupted by the appearance of “God.” An animated likeness, with flowing white beard and robes, appeared in the cathedral-like ceiling and asked if he could introduce them. Colbert said yes, so “He” did.

The five-time Grammy winners were introduced as “God’s favorite band” then went right into their number one song, "Still Breathing," the second single from Revolution Radio, their twelfth studio album. The song is also second number one from the album, after "Bang Bang.”

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool, were supported by additional guitarist Jason White and keyboardist Jason Freese, the younger brother of drummer Josh Freese.

Green Day is currently touring North America behind Revolution Radio.

The band is finishing up some US dates before heading to Australia and New Zealand at the end of April.

They will return to play a number of stadium and arena dates this summer, starting in August.

Kevin Mazur/Getty ImagesMike McCready is the latest rocker to show off his photography skills.

According to Rolling Stone, the Pearl Jam guitarist will issue a photo book this May, titled Of Potato Heads and Polaroids: My Life Inside and Out of Pearl Jam. The title references the Mr. Potato Head toy McCready has been carrying with him that shows up in many of the photos.

The book consists of shots taken by McCready of Pearl Jam tours and personal travels through the years, encompassing people, art, architecture and concerts. Among the celebrities that show up in candid shots are fellow musicians Neil Young, Questlove, Paul McCartney, Sting, Dave Grohl, Bono, Jack White and Lady Gaga, as well as actor Dustin Hoffman, tennis legend Venus Williams and others.

In other news, Pearl Jam will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame April 7 during a ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  The band ran into some controversy when the only two drummers among the originally announced inductees were Dave Krusen, who played on the Pearl Jam’s breakthrough debut, Ten, and current member Matt Cameron. Subsequently, the band said it would also invite Matt Chamberlain, Dave Abbruzzese and Jack Irons, who’ve also manned the PJ drum kit at one time or another.

Lorde previously announced a June 16 release date for her sophomore album, Melodrama. When a fan responded to her HBO tweet by requesting more musical “melodrama” directly into their veins, Lorde responded, “lethal dose coming soon…” She added, "Fine tuning the plan for the whole year...holy sh** you guys have no idea there's so much cool stuff coming."
