Grizzly Bear, Wilco Debut New Material At Lollapalooza 2008
(Wilco - "One Wing" - Live at Lollapalooza 2008)
Despite the fact that its in my backyard, I opted not to attended Lollapalooza this year, due to high ticket prices and the fact that I'd seen most of the main acts at Lollapalooza 2006. But, the more and more videos I see from the Midwest destination fest being upload, the more I start to question the wisdom of that decision (and then I remember: oh yeah, when was the last time I had 200 bones to spare?).
Still, the people who did go--and there were a lot of them--got to see (rather, are seeing) some amazing things. Two of the more noteworthy sights were new songs debuted by both Grizzly Bear and Wilco. Stereogum had the scoop on them both. "One Wing", Wilco's new song described by S-Gum as a "meandering rocker with a triple axe-explosion" (wasn't that "Impossible Germany?"), was
premiered by the site. As far as Grizzly Bear is concerned, the already leaked "Two Weeks" was amongst four new songs played the group. Again, Stereogum's got the scoop, and you can read about it here.
As for the rest of the fest, here are some notable clips I found. Obvious, video and audio quality vary:
(Radiohead - "Everything In Its Right Place/Fake Plastic Trees")
(Rage Against The Machine - "Testify")
(Rage Against The Machine - Zack De la Rocha's Rant during "Wake Up")
(The Cool Kids - "Don't Trip")
(Bloc Party - "Banquet")
(Duffy - "Warwick Avenue")
(Lupe Fiasco - "Intro/Kick Push")
(CSS - "Left Behind")
More here. And, undoubtedly, more to come.
