The Lollapalooza lineup was recently released and I have to say, pursuant to one of my recent posts, that it isn't nearly as much of a sausage-fest this year. Wonderful!
The lineup is far from balanced in terms of gender but considering last year's pretty much all male show, I am happy to see some women taking the stage.
First of all, we got Lady Gaga!!! I couldn't be more excited. I tried to see her when she was in Chicago this winter but the show was sold out so soon I didn't even have a chance. Hopefully it will work out this time.
I am really excited about The XX, it used to be two women and two men but it seems that they lost their female guitarist. I hope that if they replace her it is with another kick ass female guitarist!
I think I mentioned Metric in the last post, I am excited to see them. Arcade Fire should be good. It isn't necessarily my favorite music but I can dig it especially since they tout two female members, including one of the band's founders.
Finally, Erykah Badu. Enough said. : D
I didn't look up any of the bands I don't know so I am sure I am missing a few gems. Please let me know in the comments. I am very excited, hope I can actually afford to go!
I will leave you with a video of my favorite XX song. Enjoy!
