As far as birthday parties go, 89X throws one of the best around. This year the lineup celebrates festival darlings Young the Giant in support of their latest record, Home of the Strange. A homecoming of sorts for lead singer and Ann Arbor native Sameer Gadhia, the bash will also include veterans of cool Cold War Kids and indie rockers Joywave. Though the lineup is pretty low-key for an alternative radio station, it may just be the cooldown this summer needs.
