Lollapalooza '07

So this whole summer has passed and I haven't even managed to write a hand full of entries. But no worries, when I get back to school in a week or so and the traffic in my life resumes I shall have plenty to tell you. Now I know I never write to you this way; recounting the steps of my days sort of way, but I feel I must do so now. I have so much bottled up. I wont drone on and on, I'll just list a few moments that made these last 4 months amazing.

Lollapalooza: Where I got to see my favorites: Interpol, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Regina Spektor, Spoon, and The Roots.
It was amazing. One of the best performances of them all were The Roots. They were so engaging and personable.

The one show I enjoyed the most however was Interpol. They opened with Pioneer to the Falls (beautiful) off of ther Our Love to Admire album. Imagine: Night time in downtown Chicago. Youre right on the lake front and rain begins to trickle as the band makes their entrance. As the oh so enchanting melodic guitar riffs of lead bassist Carlos Dengler rings and diffuses throughout the park. Then it begins to pour and you close your eyes and throw your head back as the vocals of Paul Banks wash over you. It was one of the most amazing times of my life. My very first concert and it was Lollapalooza!
