Lollapalooza 2008 MP3 Mix

I woke up to two voicemails, two txts, and an e-mail, all from Amrit. He was waiting for me at the airport because we are traveling to Lollapalooza today. He was 12 hours early. At first I thought he made a dumb mistake, but then I realized he was just super excited for this weekend and couldn’t wait to leave New York. And there is a lot to be excited about. Radiohead are gonna be great, especially when Gnarls join them on “Reckoner” (I made this up) and Barack Obama joins on “Weird Fishes” (this part is true). We made a downloadable mix of MP3s from 28 bands playing Grant Park this weekend. You can download tracks individually, or all together as a zip or torrent. If you’re attending Lolla and your flight hasn’t departed yet (hi Amrit, see you in a few hours), maybe you can listen to it on the plane. I’m using a photo of a Lolla ’93 t-shirt to illustrate all this, because I am good at image search like Buckcherry is good at viral marketing.
