Korporation Kids

As far as I've been able to determine there is no megacorporation named "Kidz," but I assumed there was as I scanned the Reader's listings for Lollapalooza,  which list a Kidz Stage right alongside the AMD Stage, the AT&T Stage, and the Bud Light, Adidas-Champs, and BMI stages. Nothing should surprise us about the corporatization of rock music, but take a quick glance: does that look like a music fest or a convention of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce? Is AT&T allowing its wireless users to download sets on their stage? Do all of the bands playing the Adidas stage have to wear sneakers with three stripes?
