We get it. Being fashionably late for everything is kind of a thing. There is, however, a reward for those that choose to party promptly this weekend at the KROQ Weenie Roast Luau & Beach Party. While everyone can agree that headlining performances from the likes of 311, Silversun Pickups, and The Lumineers are sure to be show stoppers, the early portion this summer’s Weenie Roast will give you plenty of reason to arrive on time and not be too cool for school.

Incredibly versatile and infectiously catchy, the LA natives in The Regrettes are primed to be one of your highlights come Saturday afternoon. Lydia Night has the kind of charisma that commands attention. While the band has enjoyed a laundry list of labels from riot grrrl to garage pop, their sound showcases a seamless spectrum of influences ranging from doo-wop, to garage rock, to surf in way that makes every single stick. In short, The Regrettes are the s**t.
Smith & Thell
Maria Jane Smith and Victor Thell have spent the years quietly becoming one of Stockholm’s most decorated songwriting duos. Producing platinum tracks for other artists segued into the tandem striking out on their own. In recent years, singles like “Statue” and “ROW” gangrened international acclaim for the team’s unique marriage of pop and folk. With an ear for polished production, Smith & Thell’s latest, “Forgive Me Friend,” is the kind of song that is likely to make this pair a household name.
Catfish and the Bottlemen
The KROQ Weenie Roast Luau & Beach Party is going down this Saturday, June 8, at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point.
