the lollapalooza schedule

well, it came out today. (yesterday? i dont know.)

like every other multi-day music festival, there are some scheduling conflicts. the organizers can’t please everyone. unfortunately. someone out there’s probably happy. that person isn’t me.



  • 11:30-12:15 hockey v. 12:00-12:30 other lives (okay, this one’s actually doable. FINE.)
  • 3:00-4:00 bon iver v. 3:00-3:45 kevin devine
  • 5:00-6:00 fleet foxes v. crystal castles v. asher roth (i realize these are all veeeery different genres, but i would have liked to see all of them.)
  • 7:00-8:15 andrew bird v. 7:00-8:00 of montreal (seriously, who isn’t torn with this one?!? what were the organizers thinking?! oh yeah, that they hate people.)

gah. this is only the first day. i think i’ll pick kevin devine over bon iver. i’m obsessed with kd at the moment, and i can always see justin vernon at acl in october. i reeeeally want to see of montreal. but i like andrew bird so much more. yet i’ve already seen him before, and he’ll be at acl. i guess i could go see him when he plays 8:50, but that’s during the KoL set. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO.



  • 4:15-5:00 blind pilot v. 4:30-5:30 arctic monkeys v. coheed and cambria
  • 5:30-6:30 santigold v. glasvegas
  • 6:30-7:30 tv on the radio v. lykke li
  • 7:30-8:30 ben harper v. animal collective

man, they’re really pitting the big names against each other. no idea what i’ll be doing on saturday. it’s kind of the dud day out of the 3, for me at least.



  • 12:30 1:30 friendly fires v. ra ra riot
  • 3:30-4:30 dan deacon v. gang gang dance v. the raveonettes
  • 4:30-5:30 neko case v. vampire weekend (this one’s duh for me.)
  • 5:30-6:30 dan auerbach v. cold war kids
  • 6:30-7:30 snoop dogg v. deerhunter
  • 8:30-10:00 the killers v. jane’s addiction: the battle of who do i want to see less or should i just go home early on sunday night? brandon flowers is just ugh to me, and the only reason i would ever make an effort to see jane’s would be to hear the entourage theme song.

obviously, i can’t complain because the weekend will be awesome, regardless of who i choose to see/not see. that doesn’t mean i won’t agonize over this like sophie’s choice, though. melodramatic, i know.
