Perry's Oddfest

Lollapalooza's architect redesigns a rock festival for the 21st Century

BOY SETS FIRE:You can hear a few remnants of Boy Sets Fire's sincere emo/hardcore history in the Delaware combo's latest album, Tomorrow Come Today, but it's been nearly obliterated by the generic, Clear Channel-here-we-come production sheen. If they can reach back to their roots and really rough it up live to befit their fiery sociopolitical rants, they could be worth checking out.

BURNING BRIDES:If you like the manic energy of Stooges- and MC5-style garage-punk bands who swagger, scream, and twitch violently on-stage while tearing through big, fuzzy, scuzzy-rock riffs, Philly's Burning Brides will have you grinning from ear to ear. Sure, they're doing absolutely nothing original, but then again, neither are most of the day's acts.

STEVE-O: The Jackass knucklehead promises to mutilate and humiliate himself in myriad ways, some of which are sure to involve blood, vomit, and possibly other bodily fluids -- like Beavis and Butt-head meets the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow. Only dumber.
