Lollapalooza Lineup Leaked

You know, there are few things that I get really excited about: The Season Premiere of Battlestar Gallactica, sushi, cheese… very few things.

But now I have to add some Jim De Rogatis to this list of exciting things, cuz he just ‘apparently’ leaked a huge portion of the Lollapalooza lineup. I mean, what a guy… he just couldn’t wait until April 7th, and who could blame him?

Well enough stalling, here’s the leak:

“Art-rock giants Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails, the reunited Rage Against the Machine, Jack White’s side project the Raconteurs and hometown heroes Wilco and Kanye West will headline the main stages on Aug. 1-3.

The Raconteurs, Wilco and West will each be making their second appearance at the reinvented destination festival. Other repeaters among the more than 100 acts on this year’s bill are Gnarls Barkley, the Black Keys, Broken Social Scene, G. Love & Special Sauce, Blues Traveler and Mates of State.

Quite a few of the other acts — including many of the most promising — have earlier performed at Chicago’s two independently produced music festivals, Pitchfork and Intonation. These include Bloc Party, Cat Power, Stephen Malkmus, Girl Talk, Kid Sister, Office, the Cool Kids, Battles, the Go! Team, Jamie Lidell and Grizzly Bear.”

Well, that looks like a pretty dreamy little start to a super weekend.
But I mean, I didn’t really need to hear all the hype. Lollapalooza, you had me at ‘Wilco’.
