We all know who’s going to win this one, even if the rockers don’t want to admit it. Lollapalooza, the annual music festival held in Chicago’s Grant Park, has announced the set times for its 2010 installment, and the two Friday night headliners, the Strokes and Lady Gaga, will be performing at the same time. The Strokes, who are returning after a three-year hiatus, will perform on the Budweiser stage; Lady Gaga will perform on the South stage.
