The WQLZ Music Minute--Music news written by Bishop for 92.7 WQLZ, The Rock Station
Can’t make it up to Lollapalooza this Friday when a bunch of bands take the stage including Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails? Don’t worry, they’re gonna live stream the shows! As is becoming more frequent, big festivals are beginning to stream their concerts online. That’s great for those of us who wanted to see Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails, but didn’t feel like wading through a bunch of hippies tripping on ecstasy. Lollapalooza will also be streaming pro-shot concerts from their Saturday and Sunday lineup as well. For Friday, you’ll definitely want to put the 10pm performance from Nine Inch Nails on your agenda. The various live clips from thief Fuji Rock concert over last weekend looks absolutely sick and a must see. Lollapalooza is the annual festival founded by Jane’s Addiction front man Perry Ferrell that takes place up in Chicago’s Grant Park. Want a sneak peak of NIN's recent live show?

On the road
Every time it happens, America, I don’t think you’re ready … Gwar is going on tour! They’re touring the country a couple of different times. They’ll be up in Chicago September 13th with Hatebreed at Riot Fest. Then they’ll be in Joliet at Mojoes November 9th for the “Madness at the Core of Time” tour. The prosthetic-prone out-of-this-world overlord rockers have a new album due out September 17th.
Back in court
Embattled As I Lay Dying front man Tim Lambesis is due in court tomorrow in the next phase of his murder-for-hire trial. He was arrested back in May for allegedly giving an undercover cop an envelope of cash and instructions on killing his estranged wife. Lambesis’ lawyers are expected to ask for some personal items that were seized by the courts to be returned to the singer. The preliminary hearings begin in September. The 32-year-old singer has been out of jail on bond and wearing an ankle monitor.
