dark clouds loom over Grant Park (via @livingmyfestivallife)

Lollapalooza 2014 is now underway in Chicago's Grant Park -- you can watch Courtney Barnett via their live stream as we post this -- and the fest isn't without its hiccups. Weather is always a potential issue, and Mother Nature is rearing her head today, as those clouds in the picture above show:

All three stages are currently on 15-delay from the rain. Let's hope they don't get anything like 2012. Meanwhile there are some technical snafus as well:
Let's hope the computers that are controlling the electric bracelets used in their cashless system are working ok. It seems like most attendees are rolling with the punches, though.

If you're at Lollapalooza, stop by the Toyota Soundwave tent and visit us. You can also follow us on Twitter and Instagram (BVChicago too) Stay tuned for photos and more coverage throughout the weekend.

Oh no! The people receiving a $200+ ticket for free can't get in yet! How horrible.

LOL at Jessica Hopper. Seriously one of the worst publicists ever.

LOL at 5:15 who was probably in a band nobody cared about for a reason. Or maybe you were ok but just not amazing. Musicians need to realize there's only room for about 1% of y'all to succeed no matter who you hire, how much you spend, or who you know.

Chicago sucks balls as a city. Horrible sports, weather and city overall. Who the fuck wants to live, work or raise children there?

Pretty easy to tell that 1:24 AM is indeed Jessica Hopper herself.

What is the highlight of Jessica Hopper's resume: Hanging out with junkie Kurt & Courtney, pretending to be a riot grrl in Newsweek, or having a sad obsession with Steve Albini?

From the last article on brooklynvegan it all went pretty well.

I'm not being ironic or cute at all - who the fuck is jessica hopper?

A "rock journalist" and longtime Steve Albini antagonist, apparently.

^to be fair, everyone who has ever interacted with that jive turkey, is a "Steve Albini antagonist".

Jessica Hopper is a pretty horrible person though

I'll take Hopper over Albini any day.
