Lollapalooza is back with a line-up that's full of up-and-coming local acts, legitimate buzz bands, arena rockers and a few head scratchers.

Instead, these are our picks for can't-miss acts those other eight hours this Friday, Saturday and Sunday... FRIDAY, AUGUST 5 [...]

“Captain, we have flux moderator ready.” “The time is near. Engineering, are you prepared.” “Yes.” “Dimensional Shift inducer armed?” “Yes.” “Einstein-ian Physics bypass?” “Engaged.” “Then prepare for warp-phase shift. Time-dimensional overlap on . . . one . . . two . . . three. Now, move like this.” Ok, a little overdone, for sure, but it must take some sort of disruption of Einstein’s physics and understanding of time and space to understand how – 24 years after recording their last album and 11 years since losing the essential Benjamin Orr— The Cars managed to [...]
The smartest thing The Cars did was wait a few years after Fountains of Wayne's had a hit with "Stacey's Mom", skip past the sound of their debut and go straight to Candy-O style synth pop on their new album. To celebrate, here's a Ric Ocasek tune from that era that became a Top 40 hit for former Stories lead singer Ian Lloyd. You can hear The Cars provided backing vocals. It's called "Slip Away" [...]
El regreso de The Cars a las bateas de las discográficas con la placa Move Like This es algo más que digno de agradecer: todavía no puedo sacarme de la cabeza el sonido de varias de sus canciones que han marcado una generación y ahora, de repente, tenemos material nuevo luego de tantos y tantos años de espera -- 24, para ser exactos -- y lo que hacen es, precisamente, hacer de cuenta de que apenas pasaron algunos días de la salida de su última placa. Para todos aquellos que quieran comprobar nuestras afirmaciones, de más [...]

After resisting the idea for many years while " The New Cars " played without him (and with Todd Rundgren in his place), Ric Ocasek has joined back up with his band The Cars , cementing the remainder of the original lineup (except for bassist Benjamin Orr for died of pancreatic cancer in 2000)... "The project's genesis came in the fall of 2009 as Ocasek considered how to proceed with his latest batch of songs. He realized that his best option was the three players with whom he had the most symbiotic relationship. [...]

Filed under "Unlikely" in the drawer full of possible '80s band reunions were the Cars. The Boston New Wave / pop act last released a studio album in 1987, and that effort, Door to Door, was poorly received. Singer Ric Ocasek never seemed too up on the idea, and made a name for himself producing acolytes like Weezer. Singer/bassist Benjamin Orr, who fronted hits like "Just What I Needed" and "Drive", died of cancer in...

For those of us who grew up listening to The Cars , there's something comforting about hearing Ric Ocasek's voice and that vintage Cars sound here in the year 2011.

Their new album, titled Move Like This , will be released on May 10th, and [...]
