best sets at the festival
|1|| ||TV on the Radio|
Cut short by Pearl Jam. There is no justice in the world
|2|| ||Daft Punk|
Raised the dance factor to 10 and played in a pyramid of light.
|3|| ||Yo La Tengo|
Ira Kaplan is a god among men. Everything was perfect (especially Stockholm Syndrome)
|4|| ||Blonde Redhead|
same as YLT, just switch Kaplan with Amadeo Pace and Stockholm Syndrome with Falling Man
|5|| ||Against Me!|
Worth it's weight in lost brain cells (I was next to a speaker for most of it.) They played two songs from Acoustic EP so I was happy.
|6|| ||Yeah Yeah Yeahs|
Karen O. is everything one would expect her to be live. Nick Zinner rips.
|7|| ||Regina Spektor|
Fucking packed. She captivated a massive audience alone on stage.
One of the most entertaining acts all weekend. Music was great, stage show was just as good.
|9|| ||Tapes 'n Tapes|
Biggest surprise. They held it down for sure.
|10|| ||Clap Your Hands Say Yeah|
They failed to turn Satan Said Dance into the awesome sing-along it could have been, but when they were on they were on.
|11|| ||not Pearl Jam|
I've heard they're good live, but no way I was standing for another two hours to see such a mediocre band.
|I'm kicking myself for missing Ted Leo and I'm From Barcelona.|
Lupe Fiasco gets an honorable mention for sampling Thom Yorke and for rapping well for an hour in intense heat.
|Wow, the only thing I can think of gayer than Lollapalooza is having anonymous sex in a porti potty, which I'm sure you did while there.|
|I h8 you.|
|BTW, terrific Berry Bible Fellowship picture.|
|I've see Daft Punk live and they're amazing. Its like a 2 hour remix of all their songs mixed together with an amazing light show.|
|You saw two good bands.|
|i would really like to see regina and im from barcelona, even if the latter gets agitating|
|Lucky bastard, wish I lived in chicago.|
|I only went Saturday, but Interpol and Rhymefest were my highlights.|
Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Tapes 'N Tapes were good too, but you saw
CYHSY over The Roots?!
|Lollapalooza is boring and has a dumb name.|
