On Lollapalooza, part 2

Lollapalooza is now just a few days away! This will be my last post until I return from the festival next week.

We are now in the midst of the biggest 2 weeks of the year, concert-wise. Tonight is Marilyn Manson and Slayer, which promises to be insane. Friday through Sunday I'm in Chicago for Lollapalooza. Next Wednesday is the Warped Tour, and next Friday is my 15th time seeing Dave Matthews Band. Eventually I want to write reviews of all of these shows but I'm not sure how quickly that's going to happen...

As for Lollapalooza, since my last post on the subject, the biggest change for me is that I've gotten way more into Mickey Avalon, after reading articles like this one detailing his checkered drug & prostitution past and his out-of-control live shows. His performance is now the one I'm most looking forward to.

Another band that has jumped up my list of priorities is Against Me! Due to the strength of their single "White People for Peace," they are becoming one of the festival's most anticipated acts.

Songs I'm most hoping to see performed at Lolla:

1. Music is My Hot Hot Sex, CSS
2. Wolf Like Me, TV On the Radio
3. Rehab, Amy Winehouse
4. So Rich, So Pretty, Mickey Avalon
5. White People for Peace, Against Me!
6. Nature of the Experiment, Tokyo Police Club
7. Stuck Between Stations, The Hold Steady
8. Alive, Pearl Jam
9. Young Folks, Peter Bjorn and John
10. Because the Night, Patti Smith
11. Last Kiss, Pearl Jam
12. One More Time, Daft Punk
13. Chasing Cars, Snow Patrol
14. Float On, Modest Mouse
15. The Seed 2.0, The Roots

Peter, Bjorn & John
