Day two kicks off at Lollapalooza
Tonight there’ll be a Muse-Interpol face-off
The day is in full swing at Lollapalooza in Chicago with performances already completed from Tokyo Police Club, Silverchair and Tapes ‘N Tapes.
Canadians Tokyo Police Club almost missed their slot as their van broke down yesterday in Nashville, putting their slot in jeopardy. However they made it by flying into Chicago early this morning.
The Cribs arrived on site a day early to hit the publicity trail for their ‘Men’s Needs, Women’s Needs Whatever’ album, and will play a midnight show tonight at The Empty Bottle in advance of their AT&T stage opening slot tomorrow.
Grey skies and cooler conditions are affording the crowd some respite after yesterday’s intense heat.
Tonight audiences will have to choose between Muse and Interpol, who are playing at exactly the same time on stages either end of Grant Park.
Check back to NME.COM later today for reports on both headlining shows as well as news on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Spoon slots.
