A Western Mass of Choosing: Wilco, Mac Demarco, Parquet Courts lead Solid Sound lineup

While most music festivals have taken to social media over the past few months to announce their 2015 performer lineups, Wilco’s music and arts festival Solid Sound took it a step further, hosting an online trivia contest as its slate slowly rolled out last night over several hours.

And some of the best answers, aside from Wilco, were Tweedy, Mac Demarco, Parquet Courts, Richard Thompson, Real Estate, and John Hodgman’s Big Time Comedy Thing featuring Tig Notaro, Paul F. Thomkins, and others.

This year’s Solid Sound goes down June 26 to 28 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Mass, and the lineup is fairly hefty. Also appearing at Solid Sound are (in alphabetical order): The Autumn Defense, Bill Frisell’s Music, Cibo Matto, Expandable Brass Band, The Felice Brothers, Glenn Kotche + Jeffrey Zeigler, Jeff Davis, Jessica Pratt, Jessica Williams, King Sunny Ade & his African Beats, Charles Lloyd, Luluc, Mikael Jorgensen (also performing with Quindar), NRBQ, Ryley Walker, Shabazz Palaces, Stained Radiance: Nels Cline + Norton Wisdom, Taj Mahal, and William Tyler.
