Can Girl Talk save Lollapalooza?

I have to admit that I’m not jazzed by Lollapalooza’s headliners, Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay and Muse.

As usual, there are bright spots but it’s hard to plan your Lolla outing until the schedules are up. I think mashup king Girl Talk is a fun edition this year.

Among the other ATYP-approved bands playing this year’s big tilt: Titus Andronicus, Death from Above, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, the Joy Formidable, Wye Oak, Smith Westerns, Delta Spirit, the Kills, Portugal. The Man, Local Natives, Tennis, Best Coast, Disappears, the Mountain Goats, the Drums and I’m probably overlooking one or two more.

See? I can actually say something positive about Lollapalooza.

Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk, played Lolla in 2008.
