Tread Lightly
Wednesday April 7th, 2010 with Lisa Corkery
Tread Lightly's Lollapalooza Wishlist

Ok, if ALL of these bands were on the lineup this year, I would WALK to Chicago. But it would have taken at least 5 or 6 of them to make it worth the 15 hour drive and the USD$200+ ticket.
It Overtakes Me
Flaming Lips - At War with the Mystics
Pompei Am Gotterdamerung
Flaming Lips - At War with the Mystics
Like the Ocean, Like the Innocent
Besnard Lakes - ...Are the Roaring Night Canadian New
So you've seen some stadium rock, eaten some deep dish pizza. Now its later in the evening and nothings doing... so you want to dance maybe?
Double Shadow
Junior Boys - So this is Goodbye Canadian
Fighting in Built up Areas
Ladytron - Witching Hour
Boys Wanna Be Her
Peaches - Impeach my Bush Canadian
Buck 65 - Talkin' Honky Blues Canadian
The Vowels
Why? - Almost Live from Eli's Live Room
now it's time for some Canadiana. You see some dudes wearing t-shirts from your University in Ontario, BC or Nova Scotia and share some serious devil horns for having the awesome foresight to have been born in Canada, home of the best rock in the world.
How Shall I to Heaven Aspire?
Rock Plaza Central - Are we Not Horses? Canadian
Neil Young - Harvest Canadian
Tom Cruz
Plants & Animals - La La Land Canadian New
Dead Deer
Evening Hymns - Spirit Guides Canadian
Time for some looooong anthems. More devil horns are thrown. More deep dish pizza is eaten. And some Sweet Leaf Iced Green Tea with honey.
Inner & Outer Secret
Do Make Say Think - Winter Hymn, Country Hymn, Secret Hymn Canadian
Not Even Jail
Interpol - Antics
Hunted by a Freak
Mogwai - Happy Songs for Happy People
Pass the Hatchet (I think I'm Goodkind)
Yo La Tengo - I'm Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass
Now its time for some blanket sittin' and serious listenin'. Like, to the WORDS. You wonder, is it wrong of me to wish I had another piece of deep-dish pizza? I mean, how often do I come to Chicago for my fantasy festival line up?
The First Song
Band of Horses - Everything All the Time
The Acorn - Tin Fist Canadian
Tigers are Noble
Neko Case - The Tigers Have Spoken
The Tigers Have Spoken
Neko Case - The Tigers Have Spoken
High Flyin' Bird
Richie Havens - Resume
Early Morning Rain
Gordon Lightfoot - Greatest Canadian
I don't know about you, but I just can't absorb any more Awesome at this point. Going back to the hostel before the 15 hour drive back to Ottawa tomorrow. And deep dish pizza for breakfast.
