Welcome to the latest episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard’s weekly half-hour audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year’s biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard.com associate editor Jason Lipshutz and Billboard associate director of charts Keith Caulfield every Thursday on the free Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to last week’s episode).
On this special episode, Jason once again flies solo and hosts live from Lollapalooza 2014 alongside Billboard.com editors Tye Comer and Denise Warner. The trio chats from Chicago’s Grant Park about Eminem’s headlining set and guest star Rihanna; the madness of Iggy Azalea’s Lollapalooza crowd; chatting backstage with Lorde; Outkast’s much-improved headlining shows; EDM powerhouses like Zedd and Calvin Harris; post-Lolla shows by Spoon and Interpol; and sets by rising artists like Courtney Barnett and CHVRCHES. There’s also backstage interviews with Vic Mensa and Krewella, a chat about spotting a “Bachelorette” star in the crowd, a shout-out to the bros and much more.
