KROQ Announces Which Weenies Will Play Roast

Now that the dust has settled out in Indio, the world famous KROQ today announced its lineup for its annual spring fling, and just like any weenie roast there are some dogs in the bunch.

So the question is, is it worth it to venture down behind the Orange Curtain and put up with annoying high schoolers in order to see The Killers, Bad Religion, Rise Against, Social D, Tim Armstrong and the Silversun Pickups if it means having to contend with the pimply lot who are there to see Linkin Park, The Bravery, Korn, and 30 Seconds to Mars?

If it is worth it, then you will be happy to know that KROQ's annual Weenie Roast - now called the Weenie Roast y Fiesta (because why?) which will be held at the Verizon Wireless will happen in just a few weeks. OMGZ!

Tickets go on sale Cinco de Mayo at noon, so if you want to avoid the Ticketmassah monopoly tax, you can brave the lines at the Verizon box office on Saturday, where you wont be gouged the extra $12.50 a ticket on top of the already steep price of $71 a ticket for a show. The good news is the proceeds (no one says what percentage, however) go to benefit Heal the Bay, the Surfrider Foundation and AIDS Services Foundation of Orange County .

Full on line up after the jump, brah.

Linkin Park, Social Distortion, 30 Seconds To Mars, The Bravery, Peter Bjorn & John, The Killers, Interpol, Bad Religion, Silversun Pickups, Tiger Army, Korn, Queens Of The Stone Age, Rise Against, Tim Armstrong, Plain White T's, Korn
