  • Lollapalooza released its webcast schedule, for those planning to watch from home next weekend.
  • What do Chicago band California Wives and Sharpie have in common? A music video. The music video, featuring the band's song "Purple," is part of Sharpie's 'Start with Sharpie' campaign, "which put Sharpie fans and their artwork front and center," according to a press release. Fans can submit artwork via Facebook for possible inclusion in the video.
