Not too bad. Maybe I'll go this year if I have the chance.

lol 5 to 7 bands that I would actually watch and only 3 of them I would enjoy in a festival setting.

proof that alternative rock is dead.

FearFactory
03-16-2006, 01:37 PM
alternative is a stupid fucking label, anyway.

and that's an awesome line-up. I hope they send it over to Europe and keep it there, 'cause I sure as hell have no interest in seeing it.

there are like 12 bands i'd like to see. 5 of which i've already seen.

but it'll be fun, anyways. festival setting, chicago, grant park. i can see the park from my apartment. i should just get binoculars.

schaadow
03-16-2006, 04:06 PM
looks like a decent lineup. i'll mainly be looking forward to Cursive, Sonic Youth, Ween, and the The Hold Steady.

and i'll definitely be avoiding fucking panic! at the disco

That would be awesome :) I can probably buy the ticket in a few weeks and then worry about how I'm getting there later.

I wish The Flaming Lips and/or Ween would get added to the Wakarusa lineup god dammit! I want to see them but there's no way I'm going to go to a festival with all those shitty bands, emptying my pockets just to see them. Why can't there be any good, decent priced concerts in Grant Park? Why is it that the only people who get to see a show downtown are rich indie kids. Damn you!!! :cry:

(And by that I mean the majority...I know some of you here aren't rich indie kids. Jesus)

Well, it's a bit too early to say at this point but I'll know in a few weeks if I have a good chance of making it there.

nice lineup, wouldnt fly out to chicago though. there are 10 or so really good bands, but the only one i havent seen live yet are the chilli peppers, and they'll come down to LA eventually.

this is such a sad mix of awesome and shit

I'd go to see the shins or flaming lips or something but I'd be terrified I might accidentally see editors or, heaven forbid, panic at the shitfest

they really should have just retired the name lollapalooza as having it at one venue defeats the entire purpose of the travelling sideshow

i went last year and i went 3 times in the past when it toured the country, and lollapalooza makes sense as a destination concert today even though it used to travel. i don't know how to back up my claim, but it still had the same backbone as the old lollapaloozas. it was cool to see that it felt so fitting. this year's lineup feels even more like old school lollapalooza to me. i think getting kanye and the red hot chili peppers and the flaming lips and wilco and those smaller bands was the right move.

i don't know how much you know about last year's show but it was really cool. they had one stage that was disjoint from the others that was mainly for kids, because they figured that lots of lollapalooza-goers from the past have kids now, and they didn't want to alienate young families. that is SO in the spirit of what i always knew lollapallooza to be, and that's awesome. they had children's music artists playing, plus regular old musicians you and i know playing sets especially for kids. then they also have a stage called the planet stage that has mainly dj sets, and last year they also had another stage/area for this cool band that made their own awesome huge instruments. that band played awesome shows, and the audience could also play the instruments. it was cool. ryan and i liked that part a ton, it was a lot cooler than i can easily explain. then there was the main concert area. this was all in grant park in downtown chicago so the views were great. in the middle of this huge open field they had 4 stages -- one in each corner of the field. at any given time, 2 bands were always playing. at the beginning of the hour (or maybe it was 1.5 or 2 hour intervals, i forget) the NW and SE corners would both have bands that started right on time. then the minute that those bands ended, the two other corners would have bands that started playing. (back in the day there was just the main stage and the second stage, but this new setup felt very right and was well executed.) last year there was a ton of music, and the noise pollution between stages was basically non-existant. the food was good, and it was fun all in all. i thought the only thing missing from the old days was more cool vendors, but maybe i somehow missed those. back in the day they had tons of cool vendors selling clothes and jewelry and doing piercings and stuff. i think it's a good festival.

The Hold Steady are outstanding in a small venue, but I'm not so sure how they'll translate in a festival setting. But, definitely check them out if they're at a small venue near you.

yeah so they're just like every other single city festival show

you just described coachella

Whatever dude. It's fun and it jives with the old spirit of the show. I simply don't care if it's similar to another concert 2000 miles away.

A painting is a flat thing with some paint on it hung on a wall, but despite that being a constant, a lot of radically different very good paintings have come out of history. Some formats are good and that's why people use them, and individual instances can be made worthwhile and different through factors like bands playing, crowds attending, location, etc.

I went to SXSW last weekend and it was different. Pretty darn cool. It was really original. I'm all for things being as unique and interesting as they can be, but I support of Lollapallooza as it is now, because it is good. If Coachella was right down the block and around the corner, I might feel differently. Lollapalooza couldn't support itself financially as a traveling show, so they maintained what they could and made it a destination concert, and they did a good job.
