Before they turn the summer into dust

18 Aug

This post may be a little late, since Lollapalooza was two weekends ago, but I still can’t stop reliving some of the most incredible music experiences at Chicago’s annual summer music festival. Hot Chip, Yeasayer, Cut Copy, The Strokes, Phoenix, Grizzly Bear..all bands I’ve had on repeat on my iPod for years, and finally the fulfillment of dancing along live rather than in my bedroom with the door closed. Headline night #3 was the true “ah, I can die happily!” moment with ARCADE FIRE! It was epic, surreal, the stuff of legends. If you have a chance to see them live, GO! GO! GO! The closing song was a real tear-jerker, especially with the crowd contribution and beautiful Chicago skyscraper backdrop.
