Lollapalooza is mayhem, it’s a madhouse, and every year I find myself back there. This go-round it was 4 days long. I got to see Radiohead, M83, Bastille, Big Grams (Big Boi and Phantogram), Miike Snow, Frightened Rabbit, Leon Bridges, Chris Stapleton, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Silversun Pickups, Haim, Bloc Party, and LCD Soundsystem. That’s right. I said Radiohead. It was my first time seeing them, and I sure as heck hope it’s not my […]
Another year, another Lolla. I have a love/hate relationship with it myself. I’m sure that’s true for many. But hey, where else can you see an endless number of bands in a matter of 3 days? Here are a few things I learned about the festival. Let’s start with the etymology of the word. Lollapalooza (lä-lə-pə-ˈlü-zə) is a noun that was first used in the late 1800s meaning “an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or […]

In the spirit of gearing up for 3 days of Lollapalooza, I went to the Broken Bells and Wild Cub concert last night at House of Blues. What a great show! The House of Blues in Chicago is really crazy. You can tell it’s an old venue right when you walk in. Then imagine throwing a painted junk yard on the walls and there you go! So Broken Bells is made up of two amazing artists merged into a whole […]

If Chicago was the city it is in the summer all year round, this would be the greatest city on earth. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. We all just say the winter makes you really enjoy those summer days. Well, the warm days are almost over, and I’m eating up as much of the fun while I can. Lollapalooza, one of the coolest outdoor music festivals, was last weekend. I went on Sunday and got to hear some great tunes […]

Lollapalooza is a music festival that’s been going on in Chicago since 1991. I went this past Friday to hear some great music, including Foster the People, Ratatat, Coldplay, and a bunch of others. Since most concerts don’t let cameras with detachable lenses in, I usually end up taking disposable cameras. The problem with disposable cameras is that the film can come off a bit boring. I decided to do something new and exciting to keep my photos from Lolla […]
