So take a listen, and learn how the good doctor along with comrades Pacewon and Snoop Dogg watch the watchmen. The “Lock Me Up” remix co-produced by both Mr. Green and Point Blank is now available for free download, and will be available on BURNTmd’s The Green Invasion album which drops next Tuesday (7/16). Pre-orders are now available through iTunes. A free/mixtape version of The Green Invasion will also be made available next Tuesday, courtesy of DatPiff.

The two-day event features a wide array of over 40 musicians, large-scale art installations, and a host of quirky interactive events. The Black Keys headline day one, with support from indie favorites TV on the Radio and Zola Jesus. Snoop Dogg will be performing the classic Doggystyle in its entirety on day two, likely without hologram sidekicks, following sets from the likes of Girl Talk, A$AP Rocky, and Cold War Kids.
The sculpture-based organization Arcadia will be debuting The Afterburner, a military scrap spire that shoots 30 foot flames and has DJs spinning from within. Rounding out the spectacle is the Silent Disco Tent, where wireless headphones transmit DJ sets …
