Can't Hardly Wait: Lolla lineup to be revealed Monday night at Debonair Social Club

It's my job to write about Chicago and all of its people, places and things. If it's new and it's cool, I'm checking it out.

The Lollapalooza 2010 lineup will be announced Monday night at Debonair Social Club.

I'm a huge Lollapalooza nerd, and I don't mind saying so. I get a thrill from having any laminated festival-related press pass strung from a lanyard around my neck. All year, I think about Lolla-worthy nail polish colors and the kinds of outfits I'll need for each of the three days. Nothing too cutesy, nothing too hot--preferably a succession of lightweight tie-dye cotton dresses paired with appropriately comfortable flip-flops--plus some kind of rocker-chic cocktail frock for Galapalooza, the Parkways Foundation kick-off event on the night before the festival begins (and my favorite party of the year).  

For a fleeting moment last summer, as I trudged across those hot, dusty fields with my little sister Liv (age 22) and our friend DJ (age 20) in tow, I looked around at all those acres of near-nakedness and couldn't help but wonder: will this be my last Lolla year? Am I (age 30, at the time) too old for this? 

Then, I went to the Neko Case show, got a load of that crowd, and realized I'm still plenty young enough. (P.S. to Neko: Much as we all adore those cascading red locks, I'd really consider bringing along a ponytail holder when playing an outdoor set in 97-degree heat.)   

On Monday night (April 5), Debonair Social Club is hosting the official Lollapalooza 2010 lineup announcement party, and though there have been plenty of leaks (Lady Gaga, Green Day, Soundgarden and The Strokes are among the rumored performers), I still can't wait to hear it straight from the source. 

Debonair is promising ticket giveaways, live performances and DJ sets by surprise Lolla 2010 performers, along with "other special guest appearances." It's a pretty safe (but totally unconfirmed) bet that Perry'll be in the house, wouldn't you say? 

Lollapalooza Lineup Announcement Party
Monday, April 5, 9PM to 2AM
Debonair Social Club, 1575 N. Milwaukee Ave. 
RSVP here for a hosted PBR and champagne reception from 9 to 10
