Singing a Different Tune

I found the perfect thing to post about as I try to wind down for a couple of days. Not political, and the only controversy surrounds differing musical tastes.

They have released the lineup for this year's Lollapalooza concert in Grant Park on August 3-5. You can go to the article for the full lineup, but here are some of the acts that I think merit highlighting (emphasis on certain bands are mine):
  • Pearl Jam
  • Daft Punk
  • Iggy and the Stooges
  • Modest Mouse
  • Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  • The Roots
  • Patti Smith
  • Lupe Fiasco
  • TV on the Radio
  • Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
  • Femi Kuti and The Positive Force
  • Stephen Marley
  • Peter Bjorn and John
  • The Wailers
  • Roky Erickson & the Explosions
  • Rhymefest
  • Cold War Kids
  • Charlie Musselwhite
It's not the strongest lineup they've ever had, nor the most diverse, but it's solid enough to make for a few great days of music in a one-of-a-kind setting.
