Great bump, AtomicBomo!

Why is it a great bump?

Because it allowed me to read this slice of brilliance:

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

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
I'll be there. Like you, on Friday, my ass will be camped out at AT&T, somewhere. Saturday = Rage for me, preceded with a lot of wandering around. Explosions will be seen, so will be Broken Social Scene.

Sunday = The National and wandering around.

Impy is going, this I know. I think it's a safe bet that a lot of us will be at Bloc Party on Friday.....I am not going anywhere near you on Saturday for Rage, as I don't want to incur any injuries.

Now that I've spent just about all the money I have for concerts this year, I'm sort of wishing I would've saved some for this. I was just in Chicago two weeks ago, and I forgot how much I like it. I do need to see Wilco in Chicago at some point, and I've always wanted to see Lollapalooza but never had the chance to, even back when it was a tour. I'm hopeful that with Sonic Youth working on a new album that they may be part of the lineup, and if both SY and Wilco are on the billing next year, I'm there.

A scenario like this is EXACTLY why I agreed to fly across country to go to the All Points West festival. For me, it was 2 of my Top 3 favs: Underworld into Radiohead. I just couldn't pass that up.

And like you, Atomic, I already told my friend that he and I are camping out in front of that friggin stage all day so we can be up front for Underworld and Radiohead.

YAY! for kick-ass bands at festivals!!!!!

I will be at the AT & T stage all day Friday to catch Bloc Party and the Radioheaders.

I'll be the one with a beer in my left hand, a cigarette in my right, a blonde on my arm, and a red rose tucked in my front jacket pocket...

Yeah, you want to. But will you? GAF will be the drunk guy with grass stains on his ass, hallucinating that he's at the show with a woman.

Hahaha

Damn it, NSW, you caught me.

No, but I actually will be there. I might just stand next to a hot blonde girl and pretend that she came to the festival with me.

I'm attending Lolla this year, looking forward to a great lineup, and of course, Radiohead.

I requested the weekend off...and as soon as I get my money put back in my bank account (stupid ATM errors ), I'll buy the tickets. I have a Citi credit card, so I can get the 3 day pass for $175.

Where's everyone staying? I think I'm going to go back to this youth hostel downtown that I stayed at for the R.E.M. concert. It was $35 per night and just a couple blocks from Grant Park.

EDIT: ...Or maybe not. I guess that's what I get for not booking way ahead of time. The only vacancy I found was at the Hilton, which would've cost me over $800 for the weekend.
