So we like to stream local alternative station FM94/9 here at the lovely Entertainer offices, and their afternoon drive time DJ, Halloran, just made a major announcement.

That’s right, NYC’s favorite – The Beastie Boys (!!) – were just added as a headlining act for Street Scene 2009, the first time the Beasties have ever played SD’s staple festival. They’ll be augmenting an already solid bill featuring other headliners the Black Eyed Peas and M.I.A., among tons of other great bands I don’t have the time or patience to list.

The Boys are scheduled to headline San Francisco’s Outside Lands festival as well, so it has yet to be determined what day they’ll be headlining. Stay tuned into the Entertainer, as We’ll have more information as it breaks.

*UPDATE* – As of Friday at Noon, the official e-mail was sent to Street Scene subscribers, with a few more bands added to the list:

August 28-29
East Village, Downtown San Diego
Tickets  $85-$122 for two-day passes
