Anyway, as such, I'm headed to Lollapalooza in Chicago this weekend! And I'll be Tweeting as I go, so if you can't be there to enjoy the extremely varied selection of music, you are welcome to live vicariously through me. I'm a little bummed the Beastie Boys won't be playing, but I totally understand why they can't be there.
Bands that are definitely on my "To Watch" list include Manchester Orchestra, Heartless Bastards, the Decemberists, the Arctic Monkeys, Animal Collective, Tool, Vampire Weekend, Snoop, the Killers and the Silversun Pickups.
If you have any other recommendations or just want to follow along as we check out cool bands and try to hit up some local culture (the Shedd Aquarium is on our list, as well as the Chicago Art Institute), leave me a Tweet. And if you're already following me on Twitter, you should probably switch to this new account - the old one got hacked by spammers and was suspended.
