This past weekend (Aug. 1-3), throngs of fans flocked to Chicago, IL's Grant Park for the mighty Lollapalooza festival, where they were able to catch top-notch sets by bands such as Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Wilco, Kanye West, Rage Against the Machine, and many more.

And while the heat blistered outside, SPIN.com lounged in the cool Eastsport Cafe with Georgia-bred producer and SPIN.com Hot Pursuit judge Butch Walker and his sometime collaborator, Marnie Herald. Watch video of the pair -- who often perform under the apt Butch & Marnie moniker -- shooting the breeze about "shit" bloggers, ridiculous Starbucks uniforms, and more before saddling up and strutting through "Sweet Baby," a poignant, countrified ditty highlighted by Herald's soft vocals. And don't forget to check out Spin Editor Doug Brod's blog wrap-ups from all three days of the event.
