Lollapalooza 2010 Day 3

Day 3

The day started off raining and my weather.com app kept telling me there were going to be storms. But luckily there wasn't, I'd like to think it's cause I came prepared with ponchos. Lee and Maria went ahead and Kevin and I dallied around listening to bands as we passed stages. We got to hear a few songs of Blitzen Trapper, Mumford and Sons, Hockey, Minus the Bear, Yeasayer, and MUTEMATH. Then sat and staked out a spot for MGMT. They were good, but again the sound could've been louder. And there were really really annoying people surrounding me because MGMT is such a fad right now, everyone was there. And having really loud really annoying conversations.

I hung out with Kevin for a bit by the fountain before he made his way down to Soundgarden and I went to Arcade Fire. I caught the tail end of the Nationals set and when staking out my place for Arcade Fire I ran into Jade and Nico from Edward Sharpe got a obligatory photo with them, told them how great they sounded, and as I was posing with them, Jade told me I smelled really good and asked what I wearing. Haha! I said it's just how I smell... haha I didn't even wash my hair that day. I didn't know how to respond. But that was awesome.



I'm blushing

Arcade Fire. Amazing.




I'm really not a good writer so let me just say I was by myself at the concert but didn't feel like it. I danced and jumped and sang along with the throngs of people around me and I really experienced the music. They played Crown of Love which they don't often do and for the encore they played Wake Up. When it was over the crowd left singing the melody together.



Everyone found Waldo but he couldn't find his friends :(
 

It was truly amazing I can't believe I was there. We drove home around midnight, got out late because the valet "misplaced" my car, and didn't get home until about 6:30 am yesterday... I slept almost all day then dreaming of all the music.

Maybe I should preview my grammatically erroneous comments before I post them? As I was saying, Lauren is like a baby dear. She makes no scents.
