Photos: Lady Gaga, The Strokes and tons more at Lollapalooza

http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=71649 Here are those photos that I promised. Sadly, my camera broke right before Green Day came on, so I have nothing of them or of day three (Frightened Rabbit, Mumford & Sons, Sound Garden, etc.). I recommend checking out … Continue reading

B.o.B. was the first act I saw at Lollapalooza this year and got things kicked off nicely. Here’s my shaky video of his performance of “Airplanes.” More video and photos are coming today. It’s taken me awhile to get them … Continue reading

Lolla: Grizzly Bear, Royal Bangs, Social D

Once again, I couldn’t really get into Grizzly Bear. It’s another of those bands that everyone seems to love that I just don’t like. Arcade Fire, one of the headliners Sunday night, falls in that same category. So, I didn’t … Continue reading
