Well, here it is. Looking over this year's Lollapalooza lineup has me thinking they should officially dub the festival "Lolla' 2008: Deja Vu," between take 2 of the promotional ticket fiasco and the emphasis on repeat offenders.
I'd really love to see less repeat acts and more of the "classic" bands that the festival has really been skimping on in the last couple years. Music did exist before the 1990s...
