Lollapalooza looking good

This year's Lollapalooza lineup was recently announced, and the roster looks like one of the best they've had in a long time. Pearl Jam will be headlining an American festival for the first time in over a decade, and Muse will join them as the two best acts on the bill.

Here are just a few of the bands which highlight the dozens of bands:

Pearl Jam
My Morning Jacket
Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Blonde Redhead
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists

The event will be held August 3-5 in Chicago, the same weekend the Police, Smashing Pumpkins, and the Beastie Boys headline the V Festival here in Baltimore.

Not bad considering how awful most music is these days. Jesus christ, i've become old, haven't I?

Hey that's a great line-up . Do you know is the tour will stop in the Toronto region F.J. ?

If so I'm in !

F.J. Delgado said...

Thanks merz, I appreciate it!

And brice, no, you're not old, music just really sucks right now compared to ten years ago.

wally: I'm pretty sure it will only be in Chicago, but the Virgin Festival will be in Toronto September 8 and 9, and it also has a good lineup. Smashing Pumpkins, the Killers, Interpol, Arctic Monkeys are the standout bands.
