Lollapalooza 2011 In Review

I have been meaning to write a proper review of Lollapalooza 2011. Time is not my friend these days.

Top 3 Bands Friday, 8/5/11:

3) White Lies - Never Even heard of this band. Brilliant.
2) The Naked and Famous - Heard of this band. Good god are they good.
1) Muse - The best live act going today.

Saturday, 8/6/11

3) Disappears - Why did I not see this band at the Brillo?
2) Death From Above 1979 - Most had never seen this band nor had I. They are worth the hype.
1) Eminem - Surprise of the festival. Wow.

Sunday, 8/7/11

3) Foo Fighters - This should have been amazing, but rain dampered my spirits.
2) The Joy Formidable - The best coda to a show at the festival bar none.
1) Explosions in the Sky - Backstage with Arctic Monkeys cutting in. These guys were professional as hell.
