Lollapalooza 2009 Lineup Disection

After last week's announcement of the official Lollapalooza 2009 lineup Jim and I began discussing and dissecting. We each went through the list and highlighted first the bands we have seen, and second the bands we have not yet seen but were on our radar and have interest in seeing, the remaining bands were then bands we knew little or nothing about.

A list of performers like this (which I think is light on the top and heavy in the middle-middle bottom) has the potential to pose some very interesting questions as to who would you rather see when the actual set times are released. All that being said, I’ve never seen Tool and I probably wouldn’t go to a stand-alone show. But they could be f-ing awesome. Stinkfist!
