Fans of pizza and music (i.e. everything good and pure) ordered extra tears in 2012 when the annual Pizza Luce Block Party went on hiatus. But the amplified pizza party returned the following year for its 10th run, having moved its song, dance, and cheese enterprise from Uptown to downtown Minneapolis.

The saucy details of this year's free August 8 bash (noon-10 p.m.) were just revealed, with the hipster tycoons of Twin Cities 'za delivering more of what you love: killer live music plus grub/suds from Pizza Luce, Izzy's Ice Cream, and Summit.

The meat of the 2015 music lineup is rock 'n' heavy: rockabilly scorchers L'Assassins, garage-rock persona Frankie Teardrop, pop-punks Pink Mink, blaring power trio the Blind Shake, and Alan Sparhawk's Retribution Gospel Choir. The top portion of the bill has beloved Doomtree rap bros Sims and Mike Mictlan; irrepressible R&B-party-boy-turned-soul-belter Har Mar Superstar closes out the evening. Here's the full lineup:
