Along with SPIN, Hype Machine, Pure Volume and our stage hosts Billy Jones and improv genius Chris Gethard, we'll be hosting live interviews, acoustic performances and DJ sets. Check out our full schedule below. If you look at the festival map, you'll see our space there right above the BMI Stage (in the rose garden).

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...

Jessie Ware @ Lincoln Hall on 1.20.2013
Jessie Ware

Despite bone-chilling temperatures on Sunday night (1/20), Jessie Ware sold-out Lincoln Hall for her Chicago debut and delicately positioned the cherry on top of Tomorrow Never Knows 2013. Ware brought broad smiles to chapped lips and smooth steps to shrunken joints as she emerged from swaths of thick blue smoke to deliver "Devotion" as the opener to a set that made me question whether listening to her recordings again could ever do her stunning voice justice.

As conversational with the crowd as I have ever seen an artist, Ware delivered graceful banter and open storytelling with her endearing British accent and phrases (she described Lincoln Hall as "swish"). Ware told us about getting her nails done earlier that day, about how "Taking in Water," though oft overlooked, is one of her favorite songs to perform because it's about her little brother, and at one pause exclaimed, "There are so many blokes in here! Where are all my girls?"

This has certainly been an overwhelmingly exciting year for Ware, but she didn't hesitate to offer sincere details on the news we've been anxiously reading about her budding career. She apologized for the difficulty of accessing her music online--lamenting Devotion being taken off iTunes--and informed us that Questlove's fro smells like the loveliest of incenses. Caught up in nervous giggles during the first verse of "What You Won't Do For Love," Ware gives us hope that a genuine, grateful pop star can succeed in the cutthroat music business. The audience was more than willing to wait for her to compose herself; it almost made closing our eyes and mouthing the words more enjoyable.

Ware's band was as remarkable as the diva herself, providing exceedingly tight soul grooves and tearing through "Wildest Moments," "Running," "Sweet Talk," and "110%" with enviable precision. Ware's crew is a studied, fluid operation. Jessie Ware was humble, passionate, and one of the best live voices I've heard in a while. The faces of fans in the crowd gave me faith that she'll stick around; Ware can't resist keeping them smiling.

On An On, Mister Lies, and DJ Kriz Baronia opened the show, and a set of pictures from the night are in this post. More below...

Jessie Ware @ NYC's The Box, December 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

UK songstress Jessie Ware welcomed her great debut LP, Devotion, in August of 2012. She's currently on tour throughout the US, and visited Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (1/16) to perform the Devotion standout "Wildest Moments" with a little help from The Roots. Footage of her Fallon performance can be found at the bottom of this post.

As discussed, Jessie Ware will make her Chicago debut at Lincoln Hall this Sunday (1/20) with support from On An On, Mister Lies (who is on the cover of the Reader's B-Side this week), and Kriz Baronia as part of Tomorrow Never Knows 2013. That show is sold-out, but you can still get in if you've got a five-day festival pass, which are still available.

Earlier this week, Jessie Ware released her new EP, If You're Never Gonna Move, via Island Records. The five-song EP features Devotion's "If You're Never Gonna Move," "Sweet Talk," and "Devotion," a cover of "What You Won't Do For Love," and a Two Inch Punch remix of "If You're Never Gonna Move." A stream of her new EP can be found below.

All known Jessie Ware tour dates, footage from her Fallon performance, and a stream of her new EP are below...
