Interesting: Lollapalooza 2007 Part 3

Yeah, yeah, so I never posted Day 3. I've been busy ok? Besides, Day 3 was my least favorite of the weekend, it was brutally hot, and by now, I kind of forgot everything. So, you can check out the setlists here:
Lollapalooza 2007 - A Day in the Life

I will say that Pearl Jam was surprisingly good. I had never seen them live before, and hearing 60,000 people sing "Alive" was pretty sweet. As expected, Ed Vedder brought out the political kung fu in force, with some anti-war songs, a piece with an Iraq War vet, and an original ditty knocking BP Amoco about their aborted plan to increase ammonia and other pollution into Lake Michigan. Brilliant.

This Saturday, we went to the Hideout Block Party, and stayed for about an hour. The show took place in a city parking lot next to a bunch of smelly garbage trucks. The line for food was 40 minutes long. And by the time we could get close to the stage to hear The Frames, everybody was talking so loud we could hardly hear anything. So we bailed. Sorry Andrew Bird - your new CD is very cool and we'll have to catch you later.
