Streaming Conciousness: Lollapalooza 2010

As I type this, The New Pornographers are serenading my living room from a sunny Chicago stage...ain't technology wonderful? 


Yes, it's still very much festival season and the the ever present streaming content is off in full force from Lollapalooza, the legendary fest that used to tour North America but now resides in Chi-town's Grant Park.
