For Spin's special October issue, first-time Lollapalooza performers pop-punkers Motion City Soundtrack, eclectic rockers Illinois, and MC Rhymefest were issued Polaroid cameras to document their landmark experience at the decisive festival. But thanks to the event's vast bill featuring loads of up and coming acts, SPIN.com caught up backstage with scores of other Lollapalooza virgins, including Peter Bjorn and John, Against Me!, Tokyo Police Club, the Cribs, Jack's Mannequin, Sparklehorse, and Chin Up Chin Up, to discuss the bands' current undertakings, future plans, and of course, the gravity of Lollapalooza!
