Just Like Heaven boasts stellar 2022 lineup led by Interpol, Modest Mouse, The Shins & M.I.A.

Just Like Heaven - 2022 lineup

Just Like Heaven //
Brookside at the Rose Bowl – Pasadena, CA
May 21st, 2022 //

With California fully reopening last week on June 15th, normalcy is slowly but surely returning to the Golden State. And lucky for us, so is Just Like Heaven.

The one-day music festival put on by Goldenvoice debuted in 2019 and was an instant success — a second day was added, in fact, after tickets sold out — with Phoenix, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT, Beach House, Passion Pit, Grizzly Bear, The Rapture, Miike Snow and more taking over Queen Mary Park in Long Beach.

But after a two-year absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show is ready to go on again next year and Just Like Heaven has dropped a 2022 roster that should be a dream come true for any indie music fan.

Migrating more than 30 miles north up the 710 Freeway to the Brookside Golf Course at the Rose Bowl, the fest will feature performances by Interpol, Modest Mouse, The Shins, M.I.A., Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, Chromeo, Santigold, Cut Copy, The Hives, Wolf Parade (performing their 2005 debut LP Apologies to the Queen Mary), Peaches, !!!, The Raveonettes and more for one Saturday in May. Check out the poster above for the rest of the lineup.

Want to go? Make sure to register for the presale here before GA passes go on sale this Thursday, June 24th at 10 a.m. PT for $139 (Tier 1) and eventually increase to $159 (Tier 2) and $179 (Tier 3). VIP, Saturday Clubhouse and Saturday Clubhouse Platinum tickets, meanwhile, will also be available for $349, $599 and $899 plus fees, respectively.

And while that’s quite a chunk of change to shell out for a bunch of indie artists and bands who might have peaked more than a decade ago, we still can’t remember the last time heaven ever looked this good.


SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to DeVotchKa at GAMH 1/14 (THUR)

DeVotchKa with Barrio Manouche //
Great American Music Hall – San Francisco
January 14th, 2015 //

Start with Nick Urata on theremin, bouzouki, guitar and piano, throw in Tom Hagerman on accordion and violin, add Jeanie Schroder on sousaphone, upright bass and flute, and finally round it out with Shawn King on percussion, trumpet and organ. Put them all together, and you have DeVotchKa, a multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble from Denver.

Starting as a backing band for burlesque shows, the quartet gained an underground following while touring the U.S. in support of its self-released albums. But the band’s following turned more mainstream when its song “How It Ends” was featured in the trailers for the 2005 film “Everything Is Illuminated” and for the video game “Gears of War 2” a few years later.

In 2008, Boston alternative newspaper The Phoenix tabbed DeVotchKa as the “Best New Band from Colorado”, and their hit “How it Ends” climbed to as high as No. 101 on the UK Singles Chart. From scoring the 2006 film “Little Miss Sunshine” to performing covers of Siouxsie and the Banshees, they continue to produce a unique sound with their incredible musicianship.

This Thursday, the four-piece lands in SF to play the Great American Music Hall with opening support from Barrio Manouche, the Spanish gypsy-jazz group. Tickets are available for $26, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Thursday at 3 p.m.
