I could attempt to retort with yet another TWBB drop. I'm normally quick to do so. But I'm going to take the high road:

It may be hard, but you're going to have to rough it out and follow through.

If I rough it out and follow through and find out that you're a liar, I'll find you and take more than my Michael Scott picture back, is that alright with you?

I wouldn't accept it even if you gave to me as a gift.

I read that as Sailor Moon for a second and thought, "Damn, she really does get around."

The second part of that post is still true though.

I'm holding out for Lance's Momapalooza, I heard there are going to be tons of acts walking all over that stage.

Let's just say this festival doesn't prohibit re-entry.

Alright, guys. I'm going. It's just about official. Found a hotel for 139 a night a mere mile and a half from Grant Park, got a decent rate on roundtrip airfare from here in Austin.


Chicagoans, I have a question here:

I've got that aforementioned hotel for 139 a night within walking distance. There is also another hotel about 10 miles away from the Park by Midway Airport (which I'll be flying into) for 60 dollars a night. Do you reckon the cost of cab fare throughout the city for the weekend is enough to warrant staying in a hotel I could walk everywhere from?

Yes. You do not want to have to commute from Midway the entire time you are in town.

However, where is the walking distance hotel located? It might not be somewhere you want to be walking to and from.

Yeah, you're fine. That's right downtown, there's actually tons of shit right there in terms of restaurants, bars, entertainment, etc. That walk will go by pretty quickly.

That's good news. I'll be booking that one then. Comes out to about 654 to split between the lady and myself. That's not bad at all.

Right now with airfare, hotel, and Lolla tickets, it's at $858. I figure I take about $150-200 for spending money and I should be good. So all told, the trip will be about a grand. I think I can handle that.

It seems like every time there is a festival I don't even know 90% or more of who's playing!

Okay I'll go away now.
Just wanted to quote this so I could laugh in your sad little face.


That's all.

Thought I'd bump this thread since the schedule is out:

Lollapalooza 2008 - Friday, August 1

Bloc Party playing right before Radiohead on AT&T stage=

I may just stay at that stage all day so I can get right up front. I've heard good things about Gogol Bordello and I don't really know much about any bands playing before that. I'd kinda want to see The Go! Team and Louis XIV, but the idea of being at the very front of a Radiohead show...

Saturday I'll be moving around more. I'm sad to see Wilco vs. Rage, though I kind of expected it and I think it's a fair split, since generally those bands are gonna attract two different crowds. Seeing as I've already seen Wilco I'm gonna have to go with Rage, though I would have LOVED to see Wilco in Chicago. Lupe Fiasco vs Broken Social Scene (and Battles! geez!) also sucks, but I'll prolly go with Lupe so I'll be at AT&T longer. definitely will see Explosions in the Sky as well

Sunday is prolly the day I'm least excited about... I'll prolly go Gnarls Barkley-The National-Kanye at the end of the day.

How bout you all? Who all is going anyway? Maybe we could have an Interference get together
