Lollapalooza to be Webcast live

AT&T to host concert weekend performances from its Blue room Web site.

Gen Xers too busy to relive the glory days, when Lollapalooza was actually alternative and cool, can enjoy it from the comfort of their laptop couch.

The now heavily sponsored concert festival, taking place August 3-5 at Grant Park in Chicago, will be Webcast live from AT&T's Blue Room Web site.

The Webcasting service starts at 12:30 p.m. central time on Friday and features some good, though mostly adult-alternative, bands. Included in this year's lineup are Pearl Jam, Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals, Amy Winehouse, Modest Mouse, Patti Smith, The Black Keys, Spoon and Interpol.

The armchair traveler really wanting to go all out could also do their virtual post-concert noshing at Alinea's photo gallery.

Did I mention that grunge icon Eddie Vedder now looks like a hip accountant?
