Stereogum’s Totally Useless Guide To Virgin Fest And Lollapalooza

As you surely remember, due to some Police activity, Lollapalooza and the US Virgin Fest are on the same weekend this year. Alas we had to choose but one, and we’re Lolla bound as we type. Both events included plenty of intrigue … and more than we can physically see. We have questions. For one, will that smashed Smashing Pumpkins guitar still be on sale in Baltimore? At Lolla, LCD Soundsystem plays on a separate stage immediately before Daft Punk which sets our minds reeling…

Anyway, who do you suggest we see while in Chi town? Or plan to see yourselves while getting festive this weekend? Here are the schedules for one, and the other. And while we’re asking questions: We know there are parties out there — who’s got deets? RSVP info would be nice, but we ain’t too proud to crash.
