Be still our beating hearts, because a new festival has arrived on the scene to serve as the ultimate #TBT.

Also on the bill? Cage The Elephant, Taking Back Sunday, FIDLAR, Alkaline Trio, Silversun Pickups, DR. Dog, and Foxygen.

The nostalgic shindig is set to unfold this spring on April 8 and 9 at The Observatory grounds in Orange Country, California.

I spent my first allowance on a TLC 'Waterfalls' cassette and have been a different version of David Bowie the past five years for Halloween. Golden rule: You can never have too many tacos in a single 24-hour period.
