Lollapalooza 2013: Secret Sale Tickets this week and Mumford & Sons, The Killers & Phoenix Rumored as Headliners
On March 20, 2012 at 5:50ish pm, Lollapalooza released their Secret Sale tickets for their 3 day festival in Grant Park in Chicago, IL. Will history repeat itself this week for Lollapalooza hopefuls? Last year, the day before they released the deeply discounted $75 3 day passes, they sent out an email saying it would happen that week. Yesterday, if you are part of their email newsletter, you got that same message letting you know the discounted $200 3 day passes would go on sale on Tuesday, March 26 at 10am CT and the Secret Sale would happen this week.
Skrillex has released his new remix of Birdy Nam Nam’s Goin’ In and althought it’s a little different than what we are used to, in terms of sound from Skrillex, it is badass nonetheless. There is still a touch of his signature wobbles but it is definitely more of a beat oriented track. Check out the video he posted to YouTube yesterday below.
Also, check out Birdy Nam Nam, who Skrillex says “I played with these guys in Strasbourg France and I’ve NEVER seen a more technically impressive and musical LIVE dj set…These guys are all some of the world’s best turntablists and what they do live is seriously mind boggling…”. Pretty high praise. I’ll give em a shot!
The Fine Brothers new video is great. Gather some older people and let them screen a couple Skrillex videos and film it. You Tube gold. They got a handful of our elders together who gave us some of the best quotes I have ever heard regarding Skrillex’s music. Here are a few gems.
“I’m thinking it’s a lot better if you’re stoned”
“It’s so violent”
“Obviously I’m not going to download this to my MP3 player…well..because I don’t have one”
“It’s not exactly Sinatra”
