Our friends at San Francisco's Treasure Island Music Festival announced the lineup of this year's extravaganza, taking place October 13-14, and it's a doozy. Unlike many of the big music festivals, Treasure Island is a much more intimate scene. (Seriously, 25,000 people really is intimate if you compare it to, say, Coachella's 85,000 punters!) The setting, right on the San Francisco Bay, is breathtaking and with just two stages, you won't spend too much time fighting the crowds. The full list is below. I am most excited to see M83 (video above), The xx, Public Enemy, Best Coast, Youth Lagoon, The War On Drugs, Grimes and plenty of bands I've never heard before. Stay tuned to Boing Boing in the coming weeks for your chance to score free tickets! The line-up:
Saturday, October 13: Girl Talk, Public Enemy, The Presets, SBTRKT, araabMUZIK, Grimes, Toro y Moi, Porter Robinson, Matthew Dear, Tycho, and Dirty Ghosts.
Sunday, October 14: The xx, M83, Divine Fits, Best Coast, Youth Lagoon, Los Campesinos!, The War on Drugs, Ty Segall, Gossip, Imperial Teen, and Hospitality.

You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets. But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
Almost everyone has their smartphone in a case of one kind or another. Beyond simple protection, finding a case that can charge your phone on its own, but doesn’t feel like it’s also adding a couple pounds to the phone’s weight is the tricky part.
