Lollapalooza in August

So, the Lollapalooza lineup was announced today (and apparently I missed this news last year, but it is just a three-day festival in August in Chicago now, instead of the touring fiesta that it used to be in the days of yore). It’s pretty dang sweet, lots of acts I would love to see. How’s this for a partial lineup?

Ryan Adams
The Raconteurs

The Shins
Sonic Youth
Eels
Stars
Nada Surf
The Hold Steady
The Redwalls
The M’s

Matt Costa

You can see the full list here. Hoo-wah.

As exciting as this lineup sounds, I jointly wish that I could have gone to the epic, epic 1992 Lollapalooza tour: Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Porno for Pyros, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against the Machine…Or how about the year before with Nine Inch Nails & Rollins Band? It’s funny how musical tastes change though. As many times as I have repeated that above lineup over the years with the wish that I could have been there, for where I am right now musically, the 2006 lineup sounds more exciting to me. Maybe because it is fresher & people I largely have not seen before.

I would consider a trip to Chicago, could be a fun early birthday excursion. I got a $400 travel voucher on Frontier Airlines for a cancelled flight last month. But then again, I have seriously learned my lesson of never to travel to see Ryan Adams because it seems like he will cancel everytime. It’s a hex. What is a girl to do? Anyone else going?

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
