So many pleasant and welcome surprises this year. Acts I thought might just be “okay” were insanely, life-changing phenomenal. Acts I had high hopes for — some delivered better than my high expectations; others faltered. At the end of the three days, I surmized a few things: I’m getting too old for this sh*t; new music is totally awesome and no matter how mild the summer is, Lollapalooza will always land on the hottest weekend of the summer.
I had the BEST time hanging out with my buddy Michael (@romacafe) the entire weekend. I was so happy to hang out as much as we could with my old pal Dennis and even with twitter friend (and major huge Tool fan) Lisa (@kavka). Everyday we seemed to make friends around us, despite inclement weather.
I hope you like this mix. Santigold brought something more than an A-game with her this year.
