Lollapalooza is coming up. As always, Glorious Noise will have a posse roaming Grant Park in search of warm felafels and cold beer. Along the way we try to stumble across some good music. There are a lot of bands on the line-up that we don’t know much about. So we threw out some questions to help us all get to know the Lollapalooza line-up.
Milo Greene’s Robbie Arnett answered our questions.
1. What’s the best part of playing festivals?
The psychedelics and the overwhelming energy.
2. What’s the worst part of playing festivals?
3. Have you ever attended a music festival as a fan?
When Lollapalooza was a traveling affair, I went to the San Francisco installment.
4. Other act(s) you’re most looking forward to seeing?
Amadou and Mariam. Frank Ocean. Twin Shadow.
5. Who is the worst band/entourage member to sit next to on the van/bus?
Is this a trick question? Are you trying to cause drama in the band? Drama queen!!!
6. What’s the last music purchase you paid for with your own money?
Bobby Womack, and TLC’s “What about your friends” single. There’s a jazz remix; no brainer.
7. What’s your favorite thing about Chicago?
8. How has Lollapalooza’s radius clause (no shows within 300 miles six months before and three months after) affected your touring schedule?
The promoters forget what being squashed in a van feels like. Thanks for the wrinkled trousers guys ; )

What’s your favorite cereal? next time we’re in town we should make a bowl and hang.
