So Torontette touched down a mere two hours ago in the Windy City. Running on very little sleep, high doses of caffeine and raw adrenaline, the swell of Lollapalooza 2010 is about to break. After four years, I’ve finally gotten my shit together and made this trip happen. Hurrah for me. About time.
Over the course of this weekend, I am going to try, through all the sweat, beer and beats to write about my great adventure, unravelling here in Chicago. But we know that for the Super music fan, this weekend is about the music, of course. So if I’m not the perfect expression of timeliness, accept my apology in advance.
Here’s my show picks for today, Friday August 6:
Ancient Astronauts: http://www.myspace.com/ancientastronautsswitch
Jukebox the Ghost: http://www.myspace.com/jukeboxtheghost
The Big Pink: http://www.myspace.com/musicfromthebigpink
NEON TREES: http://www.myspace.com/neontrees
Hot Chip: http://www.myspace.com/hotchip
Lady Gaga…..curiosity’s worth something, no?
Next up…what is the most suitable outfit for festival day 1? This could be almost as challenging as what bands make the cut. Stay tuned.
Final thoughts my friends, I want to know if YOU are here too! If so, send me an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and let’s meet up for a show or two.
