The Cool Kids

This past weekend (Aug. 1-3), the masses congregated at Chicago, IL's Grant Park for the mighty Lollapalooza festival. Thousands of avid music fans were able to catch top-notch sets by bands such as Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, Kanye West, and Rage Against the Machine, among others.

SPIN.com's Peter Gaston chilled with Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish of Chicago throwback hip-hop group the Cool Kids; watch video of Gaston chatting with the duo about Chicago baseball, up-and-coming regional music talent, and getting drunk during daylight (during a Spin photoshoot, of course). And don't forget to check out Spin Editor Doug Brod's blog wrap-ups from all three days of the event.
