Lollapalooza 2012

Wasn’t allowed to bring my camera, so these are all from my phone. Awesome show. Jack White and Sigur Ros definitely stand out. Great day of weather, too.

Rory and I spent the day at Lollapalooza 2012
This was on the train on the way to Union Station
BEFORE all the people
Bombay Bicycle club
This was the crowd for Bombay Bicycle Club, now imagine what it was for Sigor Ros and Jack White!
Trampled by Turtles — notice they don’t have a drummer.
Yep, that’s Jonsi singing into his guitar. SIGUR ROS!!!
Jonsi playing the guitar like he does. And yes, that’s how close we were.
Sigur Ros
Jack White! He had two separate bands that switch midway through. The first half was an all male band, then the second half was an all female band. Pretty cool stuff. Incredible musicians. I saw the White Stripes before, but this is just incredibly better.

black and white version
Jack White playing “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.” Very cool to hear it with a full band. The picture is blurry because the entire crowd was shifting, shoving, moving, jumping. Couldn’t stand still.
Here’s the switchover to the female band.
As soon as the encore ended my friend and I bolted as fast as we could. That’s hard to do when your knee is sore, the ground is nothing but mud, and you’re trying to walk through 100,000 people to get to the train on time.
