Song of the Day – 8/7/16

Minneapalooza took place for the first time over the past weekend. While it couldn’t quite replace the Lolla experience, it did serve as a perfect vehicle to reminisce about the good times the group has had at the festival over the last five years. This band was on the Minneapalooza lineup and was one of … Continue reading

Song of the Day – 5/1/16

It’s been nearly 10 full months since this band performed live at Lolla 2015. The love of their debut album continues. “Pacifier” – Catfish and the Bottlemen – The Balcony – 2014

(Very Belated) Lollapalooza 2015 Recap

Every year, we write¬†up a recap of the festival including an artist by artist breakdown. Typically this happens well in advance of Thanksgiving…like end of August.

On the plus side, the festival organizers were able to at least fit music in from all planned artists so we got to see cool acoustic sets from guys like … Continue reading

Song of the Day – 8/1/15

Day 2 (aka Wine Day) featured a lot of bands that generated just middle of the road excitement going into the festival. The expectations were exceeded throughout the day with really good shows all around. We could have easily gone with Metallica (who sounded much better than I thought they would and rolled through a … Continue reading

Song of the Day – 7/31/15

It’s tradition for us to post a Song of the Day for the artist that stood out the most over the 3 day music festival extravaganza that is Lollapalooza. For Day 1, you would be hard pressed to find a band that put forth more passion/heart/effort than St. Paul and The Broken Bones. I was … Continue reading

Song of the Day – 7/30/15

This song was a big part of the overall Lollapalooza Chicago Weekend. I know…it makes perfect sense. “King of Wishful Thinking” – Go West – Indian Summer – 1992
