The 2013 Rock the Garden lineup is out there. The Current and the Walker Art Center have unveiled a grouping of bands that hopefully will not raise the ire of too many local op-ed writers, and two of the big names for the spectacle are staples of the station, Metric and Silversun Pickups.

The event takes place at the Walker on Saturday, June 15 for about 10,000 folks gathered on the grassy hill next to the gallery. For anyone who is not a vet, you'll need to pony up for membership to either the Walker or the Current to get a shot at these tickets before they go on sale Friday. They sell mighty fast.

They did it right in 2010 (MGMT, OK GO, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings). Diverse bands delivered great sets on stage and alone would sell out venues here. All good acts this year in their own right, but if I'm gonna be spending 7 hours there, I want something that's gonna make me excited to stay there the whole time. Dan Deacon will be really fun, but Low will kill any buzz I have going at that point. Bob Mould...a legend, good fit, but his value is brought down by the acts before/after him because it doesnt change greatly enough. Silversun Pickups as the lead into the headliner Metric? C'mon man.

Again, all decent acts this year, but as a collective, I feel it's not a knockout. If it's The Current's show, showcase a typical Current's playlist. Not just indie, but (good) hip-hop, funk, rock, electronica...etc.

Besides Bob Mould and Metric, not very impressive. I'm sure it'll sell out as fast as usual though.  No Devo again! :-(

Well, so far 1/4th of the acts would be worth seeing.

yeah, I keep wishing the line-up would expand geographically. Bring back the person who booked Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Wilco, & David Byrne

@Alex Anderson I assume you mean Bob?
