Our colleagues over at Brand X on Thursday snagged an exclusive on the lineup for this year's Make Music Pasadena festival, which will take place on and around Colorado Boulevard downtown on June 18. Writes Brand X's Daniel Siegal:

This year’s big names are all pleasant, guitar-driven indie, of the simple (Best Coast), saccharine (Ra Ra Riot) and smart (Morning Benders) varieties.  In the tradition of previous years, however, the rest of the line-up has an enjoyably diverse spread of acts to look forward to, from local synth-pop duo (and L.A. Unheard alums) Kisses, to goth-chanteuse Zola Jesus and up-and-coming Mexican songstress Carla Morrison. Plus, the organizers promise many more TBA. Did we mention this would all be free?

Head on over to Brand X for details.
