Video: WBEZ's Council of Hipsters takes on Lollapalooza (with Steve Albini)

The Council of Hipsters has reconvened! Lollapalooza is upon us this weekend and our good friend Steve Albini is deciding who he should see. Instead of Steve making his own decisions on what bands to watch, we decided to leave the decision up to our Couunnncilllll of Hipsterrrrsssss! And just to sweeten the deal and take this bit to the next level, we introduce special guest Alderman Burt Natarus (former-42nd) as part of the council! Who better to inform us on what to see than the man who oversaw Grant Park for decades? Today: Bon Iver vs. Heartless Bastards
