Lollapalooza 2010: Day One in Review

I have been very absent from my blog lately, which I am not happy about, but I have something up my sleeve, so stayed tuned for some news.

This weekend I took in all three days of Lollapalooza and had a killer time. The reason I didn't post anything on my site is because I went on behalf of Live Music Blog. It was my first time covering a festival and it was definitely a very cool experience. With that said, check out my review of day one of Lollapalooza.

Phish @ Greek Theatre, Berkeley, CA, 8-5-10

Phish returned to the Greek Theatre for the first time since 1993 to kick off the second leg of their summer tour.

Phish will return to the Greek this evening.

Video: Never Before Seen Phish Footage From IT

Thanks to @yemblog for making my night!!!!


Your Late Local News

I had a great weekend and I am "finally" settled in my new place. On Friday, I made the short trek to South Bend to catch Wilco, and they didn't disappoint as usual. On Saturday, I had a really great meal in Chinatown at a restaurant called Hing Kee. Yesterday, I went down to Wicker Park fest and checked out Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. I hadn't seen them before, but it's safe to say the next time they are in Chicago I will be there. I hope everyone had a great weekend!
