blah-apalooza

This is the schedule I would follow if I wanted to shell out the $205 dollars for a weekend pass.

Honestly, I don't think it's worth it. I mean, those bands are sweet and I might just come across a band that I didn't know I would like, but chances are the heat will be intense. The last Lollapalooza I went to resulted in a very horrible sunburn with blisters and moderate dehydration, and a crazy hotel party/incident that only can be likened to a night with a hair metal band in the 80s. Broken TVs. Dude peeing on me in elevator. And that was only the "tip of the iceberg."

I think I will travel to Chicago some other weekend this summer and have a debaucherously good time without the sunburns and pissed-on clothes. I do love the Windy City and a bunch of it's inhabitants and bands.

Plus, I was pissed off when I saw that the Terrible Twos were playing but that it wasn't the Terrible Twos that I wanted to see playing. Oh, kids. Michigan bands are very poorly represented this year. Sorry, Tally Hall fans. I just "don't get it."

Although, I would consider paying $80 to see Saul Williams... In an indoor venue.

Looks like a great schedule! I went to Lolla two years ago and the heat actually wasn't that bad. There are plenty of shady places in Grant Park to catch a bit of rest and rehydrate. (This is Zach's friend, Nicky/Branches/Sandra Dee whatever I ended up introducing myself as.)

It was over 100 degrees with the heat index, whatever that means. I think that was back in 2005. It was the year that either Tegan or Sara passed out on stage.

It was nice meeting you, Nicky!!! :-)

You do realize Saul Williams was in Ann Arbor a month or two ago for like $15.

I am very much aware of that, thank you. Were you aware that he was on a couple episodes of "Girlfriends?" I taped all of those episodes.
