We came, we saw, and we conquered. Ok, so perhaps I’m being over dramatic, but we did cover 65 acts at this year’s Lollapalooza (+ after shows) and, well, show me someone else who did that…
Of course, all this work means a bit of sacrifice, namely in the department of paying attention to anything and everything else that happened over the last 72+ hours. (Shocker… the Mets keeping losing). I’m sure anyone else who attended Lollapalooza can same the same. So, like we do following every major music festival, we took a few minutes to put together a post-festival recap, complete with all the news and feature stories you may/probably missed. If you weren’t at Lollapalooza, think of this as a chance to catch up. After all, no one man can have all this power… or endurance to get to everything we post on a day-to-day basis. That’s a fact.
