Lollapalooza is playing hangman with it’s lineup teaser this year. There is a pretty good guess as to what the actual lineup is here. I’d really like to see Phoenix and Arcade Fire but I am still undecided on whether I’ll go or not. I have mixed feelings from my experience last year but maybe I should give the fest a second chance. Last year, the Beastie Boys had to cancel and the weather was horrible on the first day. Things have to go better this year, right?

I didn’t get to see them at SXSW but maybe I’ll see them at the Vic, Broken Bells are going on tour with the Morning Benders.

AV Club has Alkaline Trio covering Archers of Loaf and it’s awesome.

Stereogum has some items for download, including one of the Tegan & Sara “Alligator” remixes and the Das Racist mixtape.

And finally, here’s a video of Joe Pug at the Guest Apartment.


I have tried several times to download this free Phoenix live EP.  I guess everyone is trying to download it today.  I’d really like to give it a listen.  I know if I don’t download it by today, I’ll forget all about it.

I may or may not go see Tegan & Sara @ Aragon this weekend.  The whole thing has turned into quite a mess.  I really like their music and they were great the last time I saw them live.  I have never been to a show @ Aragaon so that place may or may not suck.

I read today that Stars are coming to Chicago in June.  I might have to check that one out.  They were one of the many bands that played ACL in 2008.  I had no idea who they were at the time so I didn’t see them.  After a few years of listening to them now, I consider them to be a favorite of mine.  Not sure how they translate live though.

Finally, I must remember to listen to the new National song that everyone is talking about.
