Saturday features alt-rock staples Beck and Band of Horses for the, um, more mature pop-rocker, while night two, Sunday, December 11, leans on the pop-punk pogo beat with Poway faves Blink-182 and emo act Jimmy Eat World.

The parade takes about an hour to pass any point.

Punks go bluegrass, “a contingent that is part of our American culture...an unhip but elegant music with its own set of rules,” according to Dave Good. And these four fellas from Virginia stretch those rules as far as their pipes and fiddles will fly. The Independent Music Award–winning indie folkies play Brick 15 in Del Mar on Sunday.
