The Dude lives! Or El Duderino, if you're not in the whole brevity thing.

Jeff Bridges & The Abiders have just been added as the musical headliner for the 2014 edition of Lebowski Fest, which hits LA's Wiltern Theater on Friday, April 25. The two-day event kicks off with a screening of the Coens' absurd, whacky and wonderful 1998 cult classic "The Big Lebowski," followed by a wild bowling party boasting plenty of white Russians and a nihilist or two.

This year's Lebowski Fest, in addition to a live performance from Bridges and his band, will feature performances from the Kyle Gass Band, and special guests Jim Hoosier, Luis Colina and Robin Jones.

The first annual Lebowski Fest was held in Louisville in 2002, and has travelled to New York, LA, Chicago, Las Vegas, Austin, Seattle, London and Edinburgh. It's a must-attend for fans of the film. (And we're certainly fans: check out our TOH! ranking of the Coen oeuvre.)
