Yesterday I mentioned the NXNE line-up and said I was impressed.
Today I see the Lollapalooza 2011 Line-Up and am beyond thrilled. I am sure I am not the only one who feels this way.
20-years ago the festival started. It was not consistent of course with the festival ending in 1997 only to be renewed in 2003. These days the festival no longer tours the states, but year after year they always have a great line-up. This year I am really thinking about going.
I was supposed to go in 2009 but plans fell through and I had to cancel my trip. This might be the year that is happens.
Perry Ferrel has stated the festival is going to be a little more retro this year. Jim Rose Circus sideshow anyone?
Yes, there are the big names like Eminem, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, and Muse that would be all cool to see, but there are other bands in their line-up that have me itching to get to Chicago this summer.
Bands like Deftones, Ween, The Cars, City & Colour, Rival Schools, Cee-Lo Green, My Morning Jacket and Cold War Kids tickle my fancy, but Big Audio Dynamite??? Awesome.
Girl Talk too…yes, I admit it, want to see Girl Talk live. J. Roddy Walston, Explosions In The Sky, Black Lips, Atmosphere, Kid Cudi, Ryan Binham & The Dead Horses…man I can just keep going.
I’ll stop now. Let’s see if I make it out to Chicago in August. Me thinks it would be a good idea.
