HARD Summer is about to take over LA State Historic Park in Downtown LA with bass, bass, bass, and… BASS?! The electronic music festival has 4 stages and 2 full 12:30pm-12am days worth of major low end theory to vibrate your ear drums.

Franz Ferdinand are back. Not that they ever completely went away (they’re a constant presence on the festival circuit) but with Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action due August 27, their first new album since ‘09, there does seem to be a renewed sense of purpose and energy about the band and some fresh excitement in the fanbase.
