As previously reported, YouTube streaming concerts from Lollapalooza all weekend, highlighting how YouTube has become just as good of a vehicle for live, high profile entertainment as it has for silly user generated cat videos.
The streaming actually started yesterday, with bands like: Coldplay, The Kills, Bright Eyes, Mountain Goats, Two Door Cinema Club, White Lies, and others. Today’s schedule looks like this (times are Central):
1:45 – J. Roddy Walston and the Business
2:15 – Walk the Moon
2:30 – Fitz and the Tantrums
3:00 – Black Lips
3:30 – Mayer Hawthorne and the County
4:00 – Death From Above 1979
4:30 – Big Audio Dynamite
5:30 – Local Natives
6:00 – Ween
7:30 – Beats Antique
8:00 – My Morning Jacket
I’ve seen Local Natives (at SXSW in Austin) and My Morning Jacket (here in Lexington) this year, and I can vouch for both being performances you don’t want to miss.
This won’t be the first time YouTube has streamed a My Morning Jacket Performance. When the band’s latest album Circuital came out, YouTube also streamed a live concert.
