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.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
