Hey, who's that dude in the bowler up there with the Violent Femmes? Wait, it can't be . . .

Oh, but it is.

Ween: alphabetical order rules!


Even after yesterday's kickoff -- from which the above photos were taken -- the crowds were out early this morning, showing up right at doortime for Day 2 of Lollapalooza 2006. Inside, his highness Perry Farrell held court for a morning press conference with photogs, journos, fans, and fest organizers. Looking like a suburban dad, Perry posed for photos with fans, played up the Kidzapalooza segment of the fest, and announced a last-minute addition to the kids' schedule on Sunday: Patti Smith. Egged on by Rolling Stone to speculate whether Lolla will ever tour again, he demurred by saying that he'd like to perfect the weekend-format fest first.

My opinion? Lollapalooza is pretty close to perfect. That's coming from someone with a press pass, but still: it's well organized, there've been no schedule changes, the prices are reasonable for food and merch. (The ice cream truck dispensing freebies to media/band members isn't bad, either.)

One likely answer for how they're keeping prices down: corporate sponsorship. Don't complain, though: thanks to a rather huge phone company, those of you stuck at your computers can stream the gig live by clicking here:
