I’m gearing up for Lollapalooza this upcoming weekend — I’m missing the Pitchfork Music Festival as I type this — and I’m already in prep mode on schedule customizations, which bands to see that I haven’t heard of, which bands can I catch at a later date, etc. etc.
Can you see the sunset from the southside has been rounding up all the Lollapalooza artists in small, digestable lists (with mp3’s to boot) and that’s clearly a good place to start. Here’s are the posts in order that he posted them: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven
I know tons of folks are going so I’m curious to see what your main artist attraction will be. For me, it’s probably Wilco and the Red Hot Chili Peppers — both of which I want to see for completely different reasons — but that will be an exciting sequence for me. Other notables include the sure-to-be-epic My Morning Jacket performance — I have a feeling they’re going to bring the most power to the day time sets so we’ll just have to wait and see.
