    Friday night, Lady Gaga enjoyed the surprise addition of fireworks to her show, courtesy of a fortuitously timed barrage from the Bears' family night at Soldier Field directly behind Lollapalooza's main stage in the south end of Hutchinson Field in Chicago's Grant Park. Saturday night, pop-punk trio Green Day brought their own.

    In a two-hour-plus set, singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool filled the stage with good ol' rock 'n' roll stage antics.

    Rock the Vote is hoping to register 200,000 young people across the nation to vote before November's mid-term elections, leaders of the nonpartisan organization told reporters today in a conference call. The organization, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, is hoping to abate the low turnout that generally accompanies mid-term elections.

    The effort is focused on young people who have turned 18 since 2008 and those who have moved since then.

    DARIEN — So just who is this band that has stolen the hearts of your children? Why is it OK to take your children to see them while they swear a blue streak and act out a pantomime of horny male adolescence to the tune of three-or four-chord punk rock? And just why were you there with your 8-year-old, mister? Just what exactly is your problem?
    You probably don’t really have a problem, actually. Maybe you just love rock ’n’ roll, and hoped to pass that love on to your kids, the occasional F-bomb be damned. If so, the Green Day show at Darien Lake Thursday night was the place for you.

    Planning a Green Day set in 2010 must be a bitch. Half the audience wants Broadway-musical-inspiring opuses about love, war and Really Meaningful Things; the other half still idolizes 16-year-old songs about jacking off from an album named after excrement. At Tuesday night's tour kickoff at Camden, New Jersey's Susquehanna Bank Center, the band split the difference with a blistering 2-hour-and-40-minute set that was part post-American Idiot greatest hits and part pop-punk history lesson.
