  • JEFF the Brotherhood
JEFF The Brotherhood -- Sat, 1:30pm JEFF the Brotherhood have been touring relentlessly for years, making a reputation for themselves as one of the best rock shows around. The Nashville brothers duo -- who also run their label, Infinity Cat, out of their hometown -- have been playing their garage rock jams since 2001, when they were still in high school. Before landing on mega-fests like Lolla, they spent years playing sweaty makeshift illegal show spots and basement ragers and self-booked tours with DIY purists like Screaming Females. Now on their seventh studio album -- and first for a major label -- they're touring this summer with Hypnotic Nights, produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. It's their poppiest yet, but still full of head-banging garage rock: good-time anthems that are at once heavy and hooky.

Lollapalooza takes over Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend, with a three-day line-up topped off by headliners like Black Sabbath and Jack White, plus highly anticipated sets by the likes of Frank Ocean and Passion Pit. Those come late each day, but there are plenty of reasons to get to the park as soon as gates open. Here are seven of them. These acts all go on before 2 p.m. So don’t oversleep!

  1. Not sure why Tame Impala or thenewno2 arent mentioned…..but Im checking out Jeff The Brotherhood and First Aid Kit.

  2. Polica are pretty fucking great. Agreed.

  3. Can’t wait to see Passion Pit especially after their long layoff. Clearly, Michael has been dealing with some issues (it’s even the focus of the “Constant Conversations” video: http://youtu.be/EBLuWKnKIn0). But, I mean these songs are so personal that I can’t wait to see how he performs them live.
