Show Review: Lollapalooza (Part 2)

In case you missed it, read the first part of my coverage here.


Sunday began with a little bit of Titus Andronicus. I only caught their last song, "Four Score and Seven," and then I went to see Rival Schools. Frontman Walter Schreifels is hardcore royalty, having previously been a part of Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today, Quicksand and more. Rival Schools is more rock oriented with some post-hardcore moments, but Schreifels has maintained his intensity after all these years.

It was my first Lolla and I've lived in Chicago my entire life. It was also my first time seeing Foo. I didn't care that it was raining.

Now it's ten times more awesome. Thank you rain.

Foo Fighters did not ignore the first album. They played "This Is a Call."

For some reason, I really remember them playing that. But perhaps I am mistaken. Maybe wishful thinking?

Being my first time seeing them, I was disappointed since that was one of the songs I was looking forward to hearing the most.
