Lollapalooza Incorporated

The suits at Lollapalooza will tell you that all the big corporate sponsors help keep admission prices down. That’s why you’ll pay the bargain-basement price of 80 bucks a day. If I was in charge of keeping ticket prices low, I wouldn’t book Depeche Mode or Kings of Leon. I guess that makes me a fun hater.

Honestly, with the Beasties dropping out, there’s hardly any reason to stick around for any of the headliners this year.

But if I was going to shell out $80 for a day of fun Friday, here’s who I’d see: The Builders and the Butchers, Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, (at least part of) The Knux, Bon Iver, Crystal Castles, The Decemberists and Simian Mobile Disco.

The Rake’s Song – The Decemberists

Barcelona – The Builders and the Butchers

Audacity Of Huge – Simian Mobile Disco

Blood Bank – Bon Iver
