Lollapalooza: I'm going (again)


Tomorrow morning sometime, I'll be east bound and down, loaded up and truckin', as the song goes. Where am I headed? Chicago for a three-day stint at Lollapalooza.

As usual, I'll have my trusty laptop, camera and phone with me, so you can expect updates via the blog and Twitter. And I'll be posting as many photos as I can each day.

Here's my planned schedule. Take a look at all three days and make suggestions as to who you think I should see. There's more than 100 artists on the full lineup, so I haven't had time to listen to everybody. Drop me a line via e-mail (kevin.coffey@owh.com) or Twitter.

As with any show, if you're going and you see me walking around, please stop me and say "hello."

It's my second year at the fest, so I'm glad I know my way around the grounds and the format. And it will be my third festival weekend in a row after Maha and ConorFest.

It's gonna be fun.

If you can't make it, there's still a few ways to join in on the fun:

• Watch some of the performances from home. Lollapalooza.com will offer live webcasts of some performances. Check out the site Friday through Sunday to catch those performances.

• Listen to 10 songs from some of the Lolla artists. iTunes is offering a free download of a Lolla sampler featuring Company Of Thieves, Jukebox The Ghost, Minus The Bear, Rogue Wave, Semi Precious Weapons and others. Dig it.

  1. Hey, I have only been following you for a few weeks, but with all the music craziness that has been happening over the past few weeks, I picked up reading your comments here and there. I too will be making the three weekend trifecta. Always glad to see other Nebraskans making the trek. It looks like you have a pretty full schedule but I think that if possible you need to make room for Stars, Grizzly Bear, and Edward Sharpe on Saturday. Especially Edward Sharpe given the fact that you just saw Spoon at Maha. Anyway, my two cents. Hope you have a fantastic weekend. Look forward to following you throughout.
