Daft Punk and Kendrick Lamar have both lined up live appearances at next month's GRAMMY Awards. Set to air on Sunday, January 26th, the show is the first official performance of the former's Random Access Memories material, after they merely appeared at the VMAs and straight-up screwed Stephen Colbert. Meanwhile, Lamar is hitting the stage alongside Imagine Dragons, P!nk is collaborating with Fun. frontman Nate Ruess, and this year's carefully calibrated "GRAMMY Moment" will feature Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Blake Shelton.

If the idea of boarding a love boat with R Kelly or sailing the S.S. Coachella with Sleigh Bells and Black Lips — bands that are liable to throw fans overboard in a fit of rock 'n' roll rage — makes you kindddddda uncomfortable, we've got another idea: the second annual Railroad Revival Tour. True to its title, the traveling festival celebrates the country's rich prairie-roaming tradition alongside such good ol' boys as Willie Nelson, Band of Horses and Jamey Johnson. This time around, the tour's trains start in Duluth, GA, on October 20, and pull into their last stop around Oakland, CA, on October 28.

Last year's sold-out trek was so successful it had its own award-winning documentary, Big Easy Express, the trailer of which can be found below. Take a look at what you're in for, and while you're at it, what slightly gimmicky tour hasn't happened yet? Aside from Animal Collective, Bear in Heaven and Grizzly Bear hosting a series of African Lion Safari shows, of course? more »
