Ah yes, Lollapalooza weekend. The unwashed masses will descend on Grant Park looking for the ultimate good time for only $215! What a steal! In all seriousness, I once paid the $215. It seems steep looking at the current lineup (Coldplay?), but at the time it made sense.
I have a confession to make: I have been obsessed with Radiohead since Kid A. Before Kid A actually, but that record cemented my obsession. An Onion article once wrote, satirically of course, that Radiohead’s music evokes the feeling of an abandoned playground in winter. The truth is, in many ways, it does. Radiohead specialize in wringing out feeling from the electronic, texturizing the unknown and expanding our idea of pop sensibility. For me, spending $215 on a ticket to Lollapalooza was worth it just to be a part of that.
For a Radiohead themed suds, I can only think of one beer that I really want: Dragon’s Milk Ale from New Holland Brewery. Not quite an abandoned playground in winter, but the flavors will cause chills. Now on to Suds!
