Lollapalooza 2010 Highlights: Day 1

by pieces of moments

The group with which I work has shows on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, but we couldn’t miss the awesome line-ups today (Friday). So after having our final rehearsal and getting some final preparations done, I hit the backstage scene. Here’s some highlights from day one.

. . .

One of the Chicago radio stations, Q101, had a hammock area set up. Brilliant idea.

. . .

Could you tell us how you really feel about the Lady Gaga show tonight?

. . .

Chillin’ and watching backstage the Dirty Projectors set

. . .

One of the great moments at the Gaga show: she invited an old friend on stage to reenact the show they did at Lolla a couple years ago, when no one knew, or cared, who she was.

. . .

Lady Gaga’s unbelievably massive production. Such a contrast from the indie band shows I usually attend (duh).
