I've had the pleasure of hearing all of that (ages ago, all of a sudden) without ever really getting into any of it. At all. More power to you, though. Anyway, I cannot imagine seeing Front 242 at Lollapalooza. Laughing in amazement, over here.

Generally agreed upon answers were: Bright Eyes, Smith Westerns and Local Natives


Today's clues are a little harder, no one is quite sure of the answer to #2:

LOLLA LINEUP CLUE: Mr. Baumbach must be flattered that there’s a band named after him and his flick.
LOLLA LINEUP CLUE: This bluesy, rootsy beauty might just be James Brown reincarnated.
LOLLA LINEUP CLUE: Hard-hitting instrumentals from a duo that fires out remixes like machine gun bullets.

That was my guess too, but she's playing another festival that same weekend, and she's playing it on Saturday. The festival is only in Connecticut though, so it's possible. A lot of people have settled on Grace Potter & The Nocturnals as the answer. Or Adele, but...yeah, I'm not seeing Adele there, though she very likely is going to be at Lolla.

I'd say Sharon Jones, but "beauty" was in the clue. Maybe it's the girl who stole Bieber's award.

Hey Ashley, or anyone else that's playing this trivia game on The Facebook, is your shit not working? Mine keeps getting frozen on "Updating QRANK profile."

God fucking dammit.

Fucking internet. Fucking technological advancements.

Yep, it's not working, but according to the Lolla Board the iPhone app version is. I don't have an iPhone though .

Nor do I.

If you don't have an iPhone...you don't have an iPhone.

Well, the clues got solved before QRank ever got the game running on Facebook. Long story short, the trivia game was a bad idea for the most part (didn't mind playing it, that was fun).

Lineup out by midnight tomorrow

I've been lurking on the Lolla forum all day. I really really hope there's a big surprise (The Cure). I don't want to be this down on Lollapalooza.

Coldplay is a bit of a surprise, no? They weren't one of the rumored headliners from a while back, were they?

There's some good shit there, of course. Not the best lineup ever, but I'm still excited.

Arctic Monkeys and MMJ definitely stand out for me, even though I've seen both multiple times already.

I'll probably end up enjoying Eminem, if he plays a bunch of stuff from his first 2 or 3 albums.

I've heard Death From Above are great live.

Muse blows.

My Dad would be more excited about seeing The Cars than I am.

A Perfect Circle is a band that I need to learn more about.

Sleigh Bells would probably be a blast live.

The Pretty Reckless is a kind of cool/funny surprise there hidden late in the lineup.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. wins the award for best band name in the lineup that I hadn't heard of before.

The official lineup is apparently out, but the site won't load for me:

http://lineup.lollapalooza.com/


Don't get me wrong, there are definitely bands here I want to see, but nothing to the extent of last year or the two years before that.

And Coldplay, MMJ and A Perfect Circle were HEAVILY rotated suggestions of who the last three headliners were going to be, but no, we didn't know for sure.

Can't fucking BELIEVE that Eminem is getting the #1 billing though, and Coldplay THIRD. They have their heads so far up there asses about Eminem it's not even funny.
