City Stages unveils online schedule, new acts

We haven’t done much digging through City Stages‘ new online calendar – yet – but considering that they’re using sched.org to maintain it, it is bound to be a useful tool for folks planning to attend this year’s edition of the music festival held in Birmingham’s city center. You’ll be able to send the schedule to your phone, subscribe to a calendar ICS feed and even merge schedules so you know where your friends are headed.

They’ve also added a new act to the lineup – local favorite Wild Sweet Orange will now be gracing The Discovery Stage on Friday evening, June 19 starting at 9 p.m., serving at the opening act for Plain White T’s. There’s no mention of the headliner’s appearance on their site, but it wouldn’t be a surprise either…

Jane’s Addiction is not included in the listings, nor is their performance listed on their upcoming tour dates. There is word though that Perry Farrell injured (actually tore) his calf muscle Sunday while performing in Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheatre. He’s still planning on performing tonight in Austin, TX.
