china is the gift of choice for a 20th anniversary. But considering
that Lollapalooza debuted in 1991 with a lineup that featured Jane's
Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, and Ice-T, the only thing Perry Farrell
& Co. should've been doing with china for the music fest's big 2-0
is breaking it over unsuspecting festivalgoers' heads.
That's the word on the street, and that's what it felt like when we caught an impressive FOSTER THE PEOPLE at the Windish Agency's SXSW showcase last month at Emo's (ignore that buzzing -- we were apparently getting electrocuted while trying to shoot video for you). "Pumped Up Kicks" is already all over WFNX like cleaning guy Pat D on free Bruins tickets, tonight's show at Brighton Music Hall with ROYAL BANGS and GROUPLOVE is way the fuck sold out, and we really need a true summer jam to make up for all that "California Gurls" bullshit last year.
