Word is out: Lolla godfather Perry Farrell (that’s him in the checked blazer) unveiled the August festival’s full lineup late Monday night at Debonair Social Club in Wicker Park, and our photographer was on the scene. The 2010 roster includes megabold-face music names from Lady Gaga to Arcade Fire to Chicago’s own Mavis Staples (read our 2008 Chicagoan of the Year profile on Staples), as well as a list of smaller local acts, such as the Chicago DJ trio BBU (look for shots below of these guys at the mic). If the Debonair crowd is any indication, this year’s Lolla will be one sweaty all-out dance party. We can’t wait. PLUS: Read Greg Kot’s take on the lineup.
