Unlike its namesake, Lollapalooza, the second-annual Lolipalooza doesn’t require a trip to Chicago, and it’s considerably cheaper as well. When Lolipop Records’ daylong festival debuted last year, it was touted as a gathering of ostensibly psychedelic-minded bands, but it also worked as a fairly comprehensive overview of some of the best and brightest pop, punk and indie-rock groups in California. This year’s lineup encompasses the hazy psychedelic pop of White Fence, the drugged-out storminess of Cosmonauts, the angular post-punk riffage of Corners and the swarming punk bursts of San Francisco’s Useless Eaters. L.A. Witch has a more shadowy and haunting interpretation of punk rock, while Death Valley Girls’ “doom boogie” throbs with an unsettling, apocalyptic menace. The lineup is expansive enough to include power-pop icon Paul Collins and revived garage-rockers The Sloths, who don’t just sound like a ’60s band — they actually started in the middle of that decade.

Plus Froth, Part Time, Feeding People, Adult Books, Winter, Joel Jerome, Drinking Flowers, Kim & the Created, Dub Thompson, The Electric Magpie, The Molochs, Dante Elephante, Globelamp, Psychomagic, Billy Changer, The Resonars and others.
