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.

The Afghan Whigs To Play Lollapalooza

Cincy Rock legends add second U.S. reunion show in Chicago

One of Cincinnati's all-time greatest bands, The Afghan Whigs, have announced numerous overseas dates on its forthcoming reunion tour, but the only U.S. show announced was the Sept. 22 concert headlining the Greg Dulli co-curated "I'll Be Your Mirror" event in Asbury Park, NJ. Today, another American show was announced with the release of the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup (the event takes place in Chicago's Grant Park, Aug. 3-5). The Whigs were up pretty high on the poster for the event, but the top-billed acts announced are soon-to-be Rock & Roll Hall of Famers the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Black Sabbath and Jack White. (Check the full lineup here and the announcement video below.) Lolla tickets are on-sale here.That sets up a loose timeframe for more U.S. dates for the Whigs — Aug. 3-Sept. 22 (minus about three days in August when they'll be back overseas). We've been hearing about a few offers to the band for shows in Cincinnati from a pair of larger festivals, but so far nothing official has been ironed out (at least to the point that an appearance could be announced). Stay tuned. The band now has about 20 dates booked worldwide.
