Lollapalooza downloads, Volume 1

Someone remind me why I'm going to the All Points West Festival again? Lollapalooza announced its 2008 lineup yesterday, and 3 of the 4 bands I'm going to APW to see (Radiohead, CSS, and The Go! Team) are playing Lolla as well. The fourth, New Pornographers, is coming to Pittsburgh next week and I'll be there.

Anyone want to buy an APW ticket?

After the Austin City Limits announces its lineup later this month, I'll be back with a massive post critiquing all the summer music festivals. For now, here's some music from a few bands that will be playing Lollapalooza 2008.

MP3: Black Lips - O Katrina! (from Good Bad Not Evil)
MP3: Girl Talk - LC and Lo (from Bone Hard Zaggin')
MP3: Cat Power - Metal Heart (from Jukebox)
MP3: Dr. Dog - Worst Trip (from We All Belong)
MP3: Gogol Bordello - Troubled Friends (live)

(Edit: I'm working to resolve the bandwidth issues...)

Longer sets. From what I hear, everyone at All Points West (the headliners anyway) are going to play full shows. Radiohead is playing the first night at Lolla...so they'll probably be up against someone else (my guess is Kanye) and they'll probably play a shorter set.
Of course...I'm just rationalizing. I really kind of wish I was going to Lolla. hahaha

True... I'm not a fan of the longer sets though. 99% of festival acts don't have more than 45 minutes worth of good material, so I'd rather have the shorter sets and get to see more bands.

Do you only have one ticket? I didn't know they were on sale yet, but some friends and I were talking about going.

I bought two during the ultra-cheap presale last month ($60!). Your boy Dierks Bentley is on the lineup!
