Lollapalooza picks

I couldn’t help myself. A friend of mine asked me who I’d pick to see and this is what I decided on, even if a couple of these overlap:

Friday
Fratellis
Ted Leo
Charlie Musselwhite
Polyphonic Spree
Silversun Pickups
Black Keys
LCD Soundsystem (though Femi Kuti will be awesome)
Daft Punk

Saturday
Helicopters (Last Band Standing at Citi)
I’m From Barcelona
Tapes and Tapes (or Sam Roberts Band if you’ve seen them before)
Rhymefest
The Roots
CSS
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Patti Smith
Muse

Sunday
1900s
Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Lupe Fiasco
Iggy and the Stooges
Flosstradamus
My Morning Jacket (even if you don’t like them on record, they’re great live)
Cafe Tacuba
Pearl Jam

That actually makes the weekend seem manageable, but unfortunately it doesn’t include a lot of chilling out time. But if I was an indefatigable robot sent back through time to rock out, that’s how I’d do it.

    I hate you Chicagoans and your Lollapaloozaing and your Democratic Senators and your tall buildings. [shakes fist, slouches away]Is there some sort of bloggers-only party? You’ll probably see Rachel Hurley there if so.

    I thought you were a sophisticated sex robot sent back through time to change the future for one lucky girl.Speaking of robots, did you hang around for Daft Punk? Wow.

    Kerry: I ended up hanging out with Rachel on Friday night at Hard Rock. More on that later.
