Lollapalooza 2014 is this weekend, signaling the official beginning of the summer’s end. Seriously, what the hell happened to our summer? All of our seasons got pushed back, with spring barely even registering on the calendar (or on our thermometers). Nevertheless, it’s hard to imagine that August is in just a few days, and with it comes Perry Farrell’s little alternative music festival that could. Admittedly, Lollapalooza has lost some of the luster that it once had, but is still one of Chicago’s (and the United States’) premier annual music festivals. With so many artists playing this weekend, both Aleks and I have compiled a small list of our personal recommendations for this weekend. We hope we can put you on to some new artists!
