Lollapalooza in August

So, the Lollapalooza lineup was announced today (and apparently I missed this news last year, but it is just a three-day festival in August in Chicago now, instead of the touring fiesta that it used to be in the days of yore). It's pretty dang sweet, lots of acts I would love to see. How's this for a partial lineup?

Ryan Adams
The Raconteurs

The Shins
Sonic Youth
Nada Surf
The Hold Steady
The Redwalls
The M's

Matt Costa

You can see the full list here. Hoo-wah.

As exciting as this lineup sounds, I jointly wish that I could have gone to the epic, epic 1992 Lollapalooza tour: Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Porno for Pyros, Stone Temple Pilots, Rage Against the Machine...Or how about the year before with Nine Inch Nails & Rollins Band? It's funny how musical tastes change though. As many times as I have repeated that above lineup over the years with the wish that I could have been there, for where I am right now musically, the 2006 lineup sounds more exciting to me. Maybe because it is fresher & people I largely have not seen before.

I would consider a trip to Chicago, could be a fun early birthday excursion. I got a $400 travel voucher on Frontier Airlines for a cancelled flight last month. But then again, I have seriously learned my lesson of never to travel to see Ryan Adams because it seems like he will cancel everytime. It's a hex. What is a girl to do? Anyone else going?
