I've got a whole city to hold down

Two down, 68 to go

It's looking more like Chicagopalooza will actually get a permit. They've sold 2,000 weekend passes already. And now we know of two (count 'em) acts the fest has apparently booked: Widespread Panic, who let slip word of the gig on their Web site, and the reunited Dinosaur Jr, whose publicist included a July 24 Grant Park date in a tour announcement released this morning.

For those keeping score at home, the identities of just 68 other Lolla acts remain unknown. (And for those placing bets on the very active Chicagopalooza futures market, Chimzk's own Lazlo Hollyfeld recommends the Pixies and the White Stripes.)

Update: According to the band's Web site, Weezer is in.

Also the Kaiser Chiefs.

Four, 66.
