If you're like me, you thought the days of Lollapalooza references when naming things were over.  For better or worse, you figured you'd never run into another cheeseburger-palooza, or harp-apalooza, or body-hair-palooza or hackey-sack-palooza. You just figured that boat had sailed.

Like, in 1998 ...

Well, not so fast. Pacific Lutheran University has other ideas, and they take shape Saturday during an outdoor, afternoon, free music festival set to overrun the college's well-known Garfield Street.

Ladies and gentleman, prepare for LollaPLUza.

Get it?

Of course you do.

According to the press release, music will run from 1-5 p.m. Saturday and include musical acts with PLU ties like Under the Covers, PLUtonic (get it?), Jenny Snipstead and the Volcano's own Zach Powers, AKA Rockwell Powers.

LollaPLUza is sponsored by the Associated Students of PLU, and will reportedly also feature food, games and a muthatruckin' dunk tank, yo.

In their defense, LollaPLUza has been around since back when those jokes might have been considered clever by some...

PLUtonic...well, I got nothing for that one.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I'm all for LollaPLUza and jumping in the way back machine when naming events. And you're right, LollaPLUza is not a new thing, so it's grandfathered in.
