Have you seen the lineup for this year’s Lollapalooza? Holy crap is it good! The headliners are, eh, not really that much to get excited about. The Killers, Depeche Mode, Snoop, Kings of Leon, Beastie Boys... I mean, they’re good bands, but nothing I’m going to freak out over.
Then there are the ‘side’ bands. Santigold (formerly Santogold)! Love, love, love her.
Silversun Pickups! I’m going to wet myself.
Band of Horses! I will throw my underwear at them.
Neko Case! I’m shaking.
Vampire Weekend! Gotta love anything with vampire in the title!
I could go on and on. The lineup is practically orgasmic. And I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out how I can get there.
Then it hit me. DUH!! I work at a radio station!! And there is this wonderful invention called the press pass. I applied for one today and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the novelty of being from Alaska will be enough to get me in. I’m almost positive that none of the other public radio stations up here are asking for press passes. So if they have like, geographical preference or something, I’m as good as there. Keep your fingers crossed because not only would I get to go, I could potentially meet.the.artists. Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!! This is so much more awesome than the time I got to go to Live Earth for work!
