iFest Lineup Already Well-Known, Tickets On Sale At 10 a.m.

6:30 p.m. Sunday, April 25, Bud Light World Music Stage In what has become the worst-kept secret since either the end of The Crying Game or last Sunday's revelation that the Flaming Lips are this year's Summerfest headliners , the lineup of April's Houston International Festival has been leaking all over local music Web sites this week. Rocks Off will cop to spilling a few of those beans ourselves, both in print and online . But seriously, can you blame us (or anyone else)? In all the years we've been keeping an eye on iFest - Rocks Off was paying attention, if not attending, even back in our Austin Chronicle days - this year's festival feels top-to-bottom like the strongest one to date. iFest, spanning the weekends of April 17-18 and 24-25 on several stages spread over downtown, has outdone itself in booking all three types of artists: Those who would otherwise come nowhere near Houston, those who should really think about playing here more often and those who already do. We've cobbled together a few video examples of iFest 2010 performers from all three categories after the jump. Enjoy.
