I finally had a chance to check out the Lollapalooza 2009 line up and I am a little excited about it. Ok, a lot excited…

See any bands in there you like? I know I see a ton of bands I would love to see, even if I have already seen them previously in the year! There is also a handful of other artists too listed to perform at another stage.
I’ve never been to Chicago so this may have to happen. I am sure my pal Matt will want to join me as has mentioned it to me a couple of times. Any of you other Cleveland bloggers thinking of invading Chicago too?
Tickets are $190 for the three day festival not including a place to stay. I will be highly considering this since I have still heard nothing about this year’s Virgin Mobile Festival.
I would like to say that I was going to the Virgin Mobile Festival for the fouth time in a row but if they move it from the Pimlico Race Track that will really put a damper on if I want to go. Part of the whole experience was being at that horse race track turned festival grounds… I wrote a little post about it a few weeks back you can read if you are curious on why they might move the Virgin Festival to another location.
I guess we will see what happens!
Until then here are some Lollapalooza related videos I found…
This video is footage of a terrible crowd in Charlestown, VA in 1995 not giving a good welcome to original indie artist Pavement:
I really wanted to go to Lollapalooza in 2007 because of this band:
Jane’s Addiction in Enumclaw, WA in 1991 with Ice T (NSFW, a little strong language going on here…):
