With all of the excitement going on in my life…more like me trying to move out of one apartment and into another (painting/touching up and all), I completely forgot about the fact that I’m heading out to Chicago at the beginning of August.
And then it was more like an “oh, shit” moment since I hadn’t purchased my plane tickets yet.
Once that minor detail was taken care of I headed over to the Lollapalooza site to refresh my memory on the lineup, which just like earlier this year, I’ll be feeding you all with songs of artists who will be gracing the stages at Grant Park. I don’t think anything could top my Coachella experience (it is rather blurry though..), but this time around I’ll be ready to make the most out of the festival. So, give me your tips on the city, I haven’t been since I was like 8.
Typical of most festivals, there are always set conflicts..some are hard to make a decision for while others you may be easily swayed. On Friday, Tennis and Young The Giant will both be playing simultaneously. Tennis, a husband/wife duo, stirred up some hype with cute single, “Marathon,” but fell under the radar soon after. They have recently picked up attention again with a Brenda Lee cover displaying their sound best. Young The Giant is an eclectic group of artists from many different backgrounds and yet create such a smooth, classic sound. Vocalist, Sameer Gadhia, has a voice that’s soulful and energetic and one that instantly won me over. Have a listen..who would you pick?
Yeah, I know who I’m seeing..right-click and enjoy.
Oh, it’s also the 20th anniversary of the festival and they’re leading up to it with video installments, check one of them out below.
