CD102.5 just announced the lineup for its annual spring concert CD102.5 Day, and it's topped off by a couple of doozies from the UK, Mercury Prize winners Alt-J and live powerhouse The Joy Formidable. Not that those popular imports will be performing together; like last year's event, this one is being split into two consecutive Saturdays at LC Pavilion, with the "FIRST DOSE" on March 30 and a "SECOND DOSE" onApril 6. Here's the full lineup:

FIRST DOSE, Saturday, March 30th: Alt-J, Little Green Cars, Family of the Year, The Virginmarys

SECOND DOSE, Saturday, April 6th: The Joy Formidable, The Neighbourhood, Guards, San Cisco

Watch out for Jams of the Week honorees Guards; along with The Joy Formidable, they're making me think SECOND DOSE is the stronger of the two lineups. But people love Alt-J, and maybe you're one of those people. I'll find out on March 30, I suppose. Nice work from "The Alternative Station" once again.
