Kill two birds with one stone this summer: The cross-over tour the world didn’t know it needed has officially arrived. Lil Wayne and Blink-182 announced their joint North American tour featuring special guest Neck Deep on May 6. The tour will commence June 27 in Columbus, Ohio and end Sept. 18 in Camden, New Jersey. Lil Wayne will not perform at five cities including Toronto, Holmdel, El Paso, Wichita, and Council Bluffs.

The two legendary acts also teamed up to deliver a live mashup of their respective iconic songs “A Milli” and “What’s My Age Again.” While hip-hop in recent years has taken inspiration from rock, as evidenced by artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are no strangers to their universes colliding, having collaborated on a handful of projects—Travis Barker on Wayne’s “One Way Trip” and “I Am Not a Human Being,” and Lil Wayne on Barker’s “Can a Drummer Get Some” remix. Check out the upcoming tour dates and listen to the mashup below.

In line with a lengthy track record of top-notch annual programming, Outside Lands‘ 2019 lineup is a mixed bag of musical talent that offers something for all types of music lover. The San Francisco affair’s collection of headliners is rife with artists who are in the midst of career hot streaks. Recent multiple Grammy Award-winning artist Kacey Musgraves tops the lineup with Anderson .Paak, Childish Gambino, and Flume. Attendees can presumably expect Flume to use his Outside Lands slot as a launchpad for new music, given his release of mixtape, Hi, This is Flume, and his ensuing announcement that more fresh material would soon follow. Paul Simon, Twenty One Pilots, The Lumineers, Blink-182, Kygo, Leon Bridges, and Lil Wayne round out the remaining headliners.

Outside Lands’ 2019 lineup represents the electronic genre in its broad scope. RL Grime, San Holo, Big Wild, DJ Koze, Justin Martin, Shallou, and Bob Moses appear among the many producers tapped to perform at the festival. Moreover, DJ Koze, Bay Area-natives Luttrell and Justin Martin, and Flying Lotus‘ lauded 3D show all appear on this year’s billing too. Outside Lands will descend upon San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park from August 9-11. GA and VIP passes to the event will go on-sale on March 28 at 10 AM PT, and can be purchased, here.

Blink 182 gets rinsed in 80s synth-pop

Blink 182 gets rinsed in 80s synth-popBlink182 2017

Many fun things are born in YouTube, and one of the funnest things to come out of the platform is the reimagining of modern music in more retro flavors. Postmodern Jukebox, for example, rinses pop tunes in sounds from the 1920s-1960s. The 80s are another popular era to infuse with today’s top artists and pop tunes, and in the past we’ve covered some of these choice creations due to their high nostalgia value.

Blink 182 have become the latest targets to transform into this sound, and YouTuber MartyCanFly has done the honors of making synthpop classics out of their anthems, “Feeling This” and “The Rock Show.” A “kudos” to the creator is in order, as they’ve done a top job of creating a teenage/rom-com atmosphere out of the originals and embedding Tom DeLonge’s voice into the mix.
