LIVE 105 ANNOUNCES FESTIVAL LINEUP, COOL LOCAL BANDS SPOTLIGHTED -- Tastemaker Alternative KITS (Live 105) San Francisco has announced the lineup for their “Live 105 BFD ‘08”concert – it takes place June 7 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre …Cypress Hill, Pennywise, Everlast (no, it’s not the BFD ’98 lineup - we swear - keep reading) Flobots, The Whigs, The Kooks, Alkaline Trio, MGMT, Atreyu, Airborne Toxic Event, Flogging Molly and Middle Class Rut will play the main stage…

Live 105 also hosts, in our opinion, the best local music stage of any commercial radio station festival. Playing this year’s “SoundCheck Local Music Stage” are the following bands (with four-word descriptions to save time…yes we’re douchebags):

The Phenomenauts – new wave rockabilly garage

Love Like Fire – Female fronted indie rock

Here Here – Cool sound, iffy vocals

Magic BulletsEcho And The Bunnymenish?

The Hundred Days – See Magic Bullets description

The Federalists – MySpace friends: Wilco, Spoon
