Nine Inch Nails fan @ Lollapalooza 2012 (more by James Richards IV)
The official Lollapalooza 2013 lineup has been announced, even though you already got a good peek at it when it leaked in full last week. The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, New Order, Queens of the Stone Age, Kendrick Lamar, Phoenix, The National, Baroness, and MANY more are slated to perform in Grant Park from August 2-4.
Check out the full Lollapalooza 2013 lineups-by-day below...
EDM Chicago are pointing to what looks like an official lineup poster for Lollapalooza 2013. Though it's a tad bit blurry (there's a clearer image at the bottom of this post), it features The Cure, Mumford & Sons, The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, The Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, New Order, Queens of the Stone Age, The Lumineers, The National, Kendrick Lamar, Grizzly Bear, Lana Del Rey, Azealia Banks, Local Natives, Beach House, Cat Power, Alt-J, Foals, Death Grips, Disclosure, Father John Misty, Baroness, Jessie Ware, and MANY more.
Aside from the poster looking extremely real, most of these artists have already been confirmed or were at least strong possibilities. The official lineup will arrive on April 9, which is also when single-day passes - all that's left at this point - will go on sale (at 10AM CST).
Head below for a clearer picture of the leaked lineup...

Chelsea Wolfe @ Lincoln Hall in August (more by Zach Pollack)
As mentioned, the 2013 edition of Tomorrow Never Knows is slated to take place from January 16-20 at venues throughout the city. More acts have now been added to the festival, some to existing shows and some as brand new events.
One of those brand new shows is the stacked lineup of Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude at Schubas on January 19. Ms. Wolfe made her Chicago debut at Lincoln Hall this summer, and recently released the great Unknown Rooms: A Collection Of Acoustic Songs via Sargent House. She's got an electric, full-band album coming soon. Sweden's The Amazing welcomed their Gentle Stream LP last month in the US via Partisan Records. They're currently supporting Tame Impala on tour and will be in Chicago on November 13 to play Metro. King Dude (aka TJ Cowgill) released his new album, Burning Daylight, in October via DAIS. He'll embark on a North American tour this weekend, which is set to reach Chicago on December 12 for a performance at the Empty Bottle. Tickets for Chelsea Wolfe, The Amazing, and King Dude go on sale this Friday (11/9) at noon CST.
As mentioned, The Walkmen, who played Metro as part of TNK 2012, will be playing the Vic with Father John Misty on January 18. That show is now part of Tomorrow Never Knows, with limited availability for 5-Day Pass holders. Speaking of 5-day passes, they are still available.
Stay tuned for more Tomorrow Never Knows 2013 updates.

Father John Misty at Lincoln Hall on 10.30.2012
On Tuesday night (10/30) Father John Misty brought his tour with La Sera and Jeffertitti's Nile through Chicago for a sold-out show at Lincoln Hall. Were you there? What did you think? J. Tillman and co. arrived in Chicago one day before their Lincoln Hall show to play an in-store at Saki with support from The Orwells. Did you make it out to either performance?
More pictures from their 10/30 Lincoln Hall show and video footage from both Chicago performances are below...

The Walkmen have announced a string of 2013 North American tour dates featuring support from Father John Misty. That tour currently spans the latter half of January, and will reach Chicago on January 18 for a performance at the Vic Theatre. Tickets for that show are not on sale yet, but check JAM Productions' website for updates.
Along with this string of tour dates, The Walkmen have shared a pair of live videos from their NYC record release show for Heaven at Bowery Ballroom. La Blogotheque filmed the group performing the cuts "Heaven" and "Heartbreaker," and you can watch both at the bottom of this post.
Meanwhile, Father John Misty is here and plays an in-store at Saki Records with The Orwells at 6PM tonight. That in-store is free, but you might want to get there early as space is very limited. FJM also plays a sold-out show at Lincoln Hall this Tuesday. Do you have tickets?

The Orwells will also be returning to Saki-- where they played their first-ever in-store-- for a show with Father John Misty on October 29. The show will be recorded live by Epitonic and will be available for free download. As mentioned, Father John Misty plays Lincoln Hall on October 30 with La Sera and Jeffertitti's Nile (tickets). J. Tillman-- who has also released a few records via Autumn Tone-- recently (and affectionately) told them, "Hey you shit-kicking motherfuckers, the last song on your record ["Under The Flowers"] is fucking unbelievable."
