Watch Afghan Whigs Live at Lollapalooza Today

Lollapalooza YouTube channel to stream live sets all weekend from Chicago

It's not quite the same as being there — unless you have long lines at your refrigerator, like to keep your house a balmy 105 degrees and live shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of drunk people — but watching a music festival from the comfort of your own home isn't the worst thing in the world. (You could, for example, be watching Two and a Half Men.) The Lollapalooza YouTube channel will be streaming various artists' sets from this year's festival in Chicago, including today's 5:15 p.m. (Cincy/EST time) performance by reunited Cincinnati icons The Afghan Whigs. The festival begins this afternoon; streaming starts at 1:30 p.m. I watched a few live sets from last year's Lollapalooza through the YouTube site and the footage and stream were both pretty strong. Here's another Cincy act performing at Lolla last year.Here's the full rundown of streams for the next three days of Lolla (times are CST, so add an hour if you are in the Queen City):FRIDAY    •    1:30 PM    •    Yellow Ostrich    •        •    1:30 PM    •    Michael Kiwanuka    •        •    2:15 PM    •    The Black Angels    •        •    2:15 PM    •    Dr. Dog    •        •    3:00 PM    •    The War on Drugs    •        •    3:30 PM    •    Blind Pilot    •        •    4:00 PM    •    Metric    •        •    4:15 PM    •    The Afghan Whigs    •        •    5:15 PM    •    The Head & The Heart    •        •    5:15 PM    •    Tame Impala    •        •    6:15 PM    •    The Shins    •        •    6:15 PM    •    Band of Skulls    •        •    7:00 PM    •    Sharon Van Etten    •        •    7:30 PM    •    Dawes    •        •    8:00 PM    •    Die Antwoord    •        •    8:30 PM    •    The Black KeysSATURDAY    •    1:30 PM    •    JEFF the Brotherhood    •        •    1:30 PM    •    Los Jaivas    •        •    2:15 PM    •    Delta Spirit    •        •    2:15 PM    •    GIVERS    •        •    3:00 PM    •    Neon Indian    •        •    3:15 PM    •    Aloe Blacc    •        •    4:00 PM    •    The Temper Trap    •        •    4:15 PM    •    Alabama Shakes    •        •    5:15 PM    •    FUN.    •        •    5:15 PM    •    First Aid Kit    •        •    6:00 PM    •    The Weeknd    •        •    6:00 PM    •    Washed Out    •        •    6:45 PM    •    tUnE-yArDs    •        •    7:00 PM    •    Bloc Party    •        •    8:00 PM    •    Red Hot Chili Peppers    •        •    8:30 PM    •    AviciiSUNDAY    •    1:30 PM    •    Oberhofer    •        •    1:30 PM    •    Bombay Bicycle Club    •        •    2:15 PM    •    Trampled By Turtles    •        •    2:30 PM    •    White Rabbits    •        •    3:00 PM    •    The Walkmen    •        •    3:15 PM    •    Gary Clark Jr.    •        •    4:15 PM    •    Franz Ferdinand    •        •    4:15 PM    •    J.Cole    •        •    5:15 PM    •    The Gaslight Anthem    •        •    5:15 PM    •    Toro Y Moi    •        •    6:00 PM    •    At The Drive-In    •        •    6:15 PM    •    Of Monsters & Men    •        •    7:15 PM    •    Florence + the Machine    •        •    7:15 PM    •    The Big Pink    •        •    8:15 PM    •    Miike Snow    •        •    8:30 PM    •    Jack White    •        •    9:15 PM    •    Childish GambinoClick here to watch all of the Lollapalooza streams.
