A few Chicago music news bites

  • After "secret sale" $75 Lollapalooza three-day passes sold out almost instantaneously last week, the fest's early-bird $200 passes sold out almost as quickly this Tuesday, leaving only $230 passes for sale currently. While the lineup has yet to be announced, ads spotted around the city have lead to speculation that Jack White, The Weekend, Justice and Die Antwoord will be among the artists appearing.
  • In other Chicago music festival news, Pitchfork fest announced a handful of additional bands that will appear in its lineup this summer, including Dirty Projectors. Sleigh Bells, Flying Lotus and more. You can see the full list so far here. Three-day passes are sold out, but you can still get single-day tickets.
  • Chicago quintet The Hudson Branch are previewing their forthcoming LP World Kid (out April 24th) with a free download of one of the tracks, "Periodic Table of Elegance."
  • The Tribune's Greg Kot interviewed locally-based rockers Radar Eyes.
  • Underground Bee published some great photos from last week's A Place to Bury Strangers show at the Empty Bottle, which our own Gene Wagendorf reviewed.
