Lollapalooza 2010 Day 1

This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. The music was amazing, the crowds were amazing, and my friends I went with were amazing. So prepare yourself for 3 big posts, I divided them cause one would be too overwhelming....

We drove out to Chicago thursday night and checked in to the Allerton Hotel, which is a beautiful old hotel. Maria, Lee, Kev and I shared a "one" person room which was actually very roomy.

It was so great with Lee and Maria, especially cause we all match, matching hair and matching boyfriends, they are just the Italian version and Kev and I are the Irish/German version. The boys even have their cute matching mustaches.

Day 1

We got off to an early start this morning thanks to Chicago being in central time zone, went out for breakfast then stood in a MASSIVE crowd waiting for the doors to open. We started the concert experience with Wavves and it was great, the crowd was still small, the sound was good, and the beer was cold.




After that Kev and I decided to walk around a bit and get the lay of the land, with doing that we got to hear some of American Bang and then we made our way over to Devo... which unfortunately was playing at the same time as the New Pornographers, but we have seen them before so decided to skip them. Let me tell you Devo was awesome, I'm so happy I saw them, those guys really know how to play.

Then we tried to hear the Black Keys, but the sound was absolutely awful as was the crowd, and since we've already seen them play an amazing concert we decided to grab some food and make a stake out for Lady Gaga.



While waiting for Gaga we listened to Chromeo, who were very good. Lady Gaga's concert was good but it seemed they were still working sound kinks outs, because you had to be really close to get good sound. But it was a great experience, kinda sad that I missed the Strokes but hey you can't see everything.



At Lady Gaga!

Sounds like it was a great trip! I miss Chicago so much! I love that you got a picture at 'the bean'. It's one of my favorite touristy things about Chicago.
