Festivalist '09: Pitchfork Starting Lineup

Last week, the internet’s #1 source for all things indie, Pitchfork, announced the early list of bands scheduled for its annual Pitchfork Music Festival.  At first glance, its probably not something I’m checking Expedia deals for, but it has a few things in its favor: A) Its cheap.  You won’t find a better 3-day fest […]

2008 Showstopper: Best Concerts of '08

In 2008, my concert viewing spanned 3 states and many stages.  Here is a brief run down of my favorites: 6. Jessica Lea Mayfield/An Horse – Pike Room, The Crofoot, Pontiac, MI – 10/29/08 Jessica Lea Mayfield put on one of the most intimate shows I’ve ever seen in October.  Unfortunately, I don’t think she […]

Lollapalooza 2008: Day 3

DAY 3 After a rowdy Day 2 of Lollapalooza, Day 3 seemed to come as soon as my head hit the pillow. I was more than ready for Sunday though and the ladies of Ann St (Laura, Erin & Becky) were pumped to join the Waters duo and I. Laura, Becky and I departed early […]

Pre-Lollapalooza 2008: Part III

Day 3 Tentative Schedule: Day 3 has all the ingredients to make for the best day of Lollapalooza: Girl Talk, Kanye West, and an Ann St. Reunion. I may not make it to Office‘s 11:30 slot, but I hope so. A little later, I’ll take a requisite visit to see Chi-town’s own Kid Sister, and […]

Pre-Lollapalooza 2008: Part II

Day 2 Tentative Schedule: Hopefully, I’ll have my bearings figured out and know the layout of the Lollapalooza grounds by Saturday morning. Day 2 doesn’t pose as many conflicts as Day 1 and Day 3, but it will be nice to know if its actually possible to bounce from stage to stage. I hope to […]
