Day 2: two disappointing performances back-to-back by two rappers I love: Atmosphere (Slug and Ant on the decks above) and Eminem. So, what gives? Both performances seemed super phoned in and frankly, soul-less. Slug decided to stick to new songs instead of crowd pleasers which is seriously self-gratifying artist bullsh!t; note to all performers: it’s [...]

Friday Lollapalooza popped off a little late in my world; that’s what happens when you have a final exam to polish off in the morning, hmph. Hitting up the press area by late afternoon, Pete Wentz was already busy doing multiple interviews and the tent was buzzing with the likes of MTV, FUSE, RIAA, VH1, [...]

Making my final Lollapalooza 2010 post short and sweet. Guess why I’m just gonna say it: this was my favorite Lolla of all time. So much good music, perfect weather, awesome food, upbeat mood all around, more room to walk around with the park expansion and the sum of these parts adding up to more [...]

highlights of day 2 were plentiful. happy to report that warpaint are as amazing as the buzz they have been generating. they have that haunting, lost in the woods sound mixed with a delicate, dangerous sexiness that seeing them live transforms into something strong and bold and stylish and undone. and lest i forget, fun!
