[Lollapalooza] From the field: Calm before the storm

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:

Javelin: http://dollarbinsofthefuture.com/

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

Chromeo: http://www.chromeo.net

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 torontette@gmail.com and let’s meet up for a show or two.
