The lineup for this year's Lollapalooza hasn't been announced yet, but it looks like organizers have started dropping hints for the headliners. These are the same subtle "hints," by the way, I used when yanking Lauren Jensen's hair in the second grade to tell her I liked her.
Riders of Chicago's public transportation system began noticing ads featuring a line of (presumably) song lyrics with "#lolla" emblazoned in the corner. So far, Pitchfork reports the following [via Wine & Pop]:
Guys, you could've at least printed "Watch me knock your boots off" or something. At least there's a pic of the Justice ad for those who think we're big, fat liars.
Okay, so it's not exactly a Sherlock Holmesian mystery. Hell, it's not even Nine Inch Nails leaving a USB drive in a Portuguese bathroom. But I won't complain. Maybe this is all a ruse, though, and "I got a test for you" will reveal itself as some surly SAT proctor passing out #2 pencils and Scantrons to the irony-loving audience or something.
We'll have our Chicago office (read: guy who lives in train station) scour the area to see if any more ads pop up and report back to you post-haste. Meanwhile, y'all know tickets are on sale, right?
What kind of time warp?! '90s (and early 2000s) rock icons Fred Durst, Scott Weiland and Mark McGrath get photobombed by '70s icon Wayne Newton, aka Mr. Las Vegas. This should be all these guys' Christmas cards.
