By the time you read this, Foster the People will have just finished performing its jangly indie-pop . . . 2,051 miles away at Grant Park in Chicago.
Foster The People
But that's where 2011 has your back. Lollapalooza, like Bonnaroo and Coachella before it, is streaming its two stages, musician interviews, and all the Tweets you can possibly handle right now until 6 p.m. (PST) on August 7. Sort of beats slouching over a computer while hungover on a Friday afternoon.
Tonight music lovers can check out the Kills and Coldplay on Channel 1, or maybe Bright Eyes and Mountain Goats on Channel 2. Heck, switch back and forth every minute--the power is in your index finger.(Also, those bummed that Foster the People have already hit the stage are in luck. They are putting on a special encore performance tonight at 6 p.m. (PST) on Stage 2.)
Lollapalooza's 20th anniversary includes a powerhouse lineup, including My Morning Jacket, Black Lips, Death From Above 1979, Ween, Portugal. The Man, Foo Fighters, Flogging Molly, Cage the Elephant, and more.
The full webcast schedule, Facebook/Twitter chat bar, and of course the performances themselves can be found at Lollapalooza's YouTube channel.
