Lollapalooza 08 lineup 'officially' revealed

Last Thursday, our friends at the Chicago Sun-Times thought that we all deserved a bit of info ahead of schedule. For those that couldn't wait the extra few days until the lineup was 'officially' revealed, Jim DeRogatis (the same el douche who dislikes Vampire Weekend because they were wearing sweaters at SXSW in 92 degree weather, and takes compliment of being called Pepe LePew because quote 'Pepe gets all the girls') wrote in his column a list of headliners and other high profile artists coming to Chicago this August. The 'official' official list comes out tomorrow, but Jim DeRogatis felt like pissing Perry Farrell off even more by releasing the full list to us today. Thanks Jim... dick.

I'm most looking forward to, obviously, Radiohead, Rage, and Wilco. The Go! Team I've only heard good things about having never seen them live. Bloc Party is HUGE. I like seeing CSS, MGMT, Chromeo, and Uffie on the list (maybe not Uffie, but if Feadz is with her, it'll be bangin beats at the very least. And Office is probably my favorite local flavor on the list. If you haven't heard any Office yet, please remedy that now.
