Frank Ocean/Bloc Party at Lollapalooza - 8/4/12

Lollapalooza continued in Chicago's Grant Park yesterday (8/4) after beginning one day earlier (8/3). Day 2 gave us sets from Frank Ocean, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, tUnE-yArDs, The Tallest Man on Earth, Neon Indian, Chief Keef, Bear in Heaven, Washed Out, The Weeknd, and more. Unfortunately, during Neon Indian's set (which was cut short), the festival was shut down due to "dangerous weather," causing the tens of thousands of fans to flood the streets of Chicago in evacuation. But the fest reopened at 6 PM CST with an updated schedule. A number of performances were cancelled, including Alabama Shakes, B.O.B., Chairlift, and the Temper Trap, but others, like tUnE-yArDs, were rescheduled and took place at later times after the gates reopened.

If you aren't at the fest, have you been streaming it online? Today's stream begins at 1:30 CST.

Pics of day 1 are HERE. More pics of day 2 are below...

The iPods once played in a lighning storm, but they were all wet and never played the same after.

Annon 2:25. Give it a rest. It wasn't funny the 1st time.

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2012 7:48 PM

Remember way back in the day when this festival was actually interesting? I guess I could say the same about indie/alt rock in general.

Posted by johnny x | August 5, 2012 7:54 PM

7:54 - it was never interesting, you were just young and impressionable. it was always a circus (not in a good way).

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2012 8:03 PM

8:03 - Totally not true. Lolla once had line ups that featured bands like Siouxsie & The Banshees, Butthole Surfers, Verve, Boredoms, Jesus & Mary Chain, Lush, Beastie Boys, etc. That's a circus in a very good way!

Posted by Anonymous | August 5, 2012 9:09 PM

I concur. Sonic Youth headlined one year as well. I totally forgot Boredoms. Ha! Damn, they would fucking rip the shit out of all the Billyburger pussy hipsters.

Nooooo, the BV Chicago comment board all of a sudden looks like the main BV comment board. I prefer the usual silence over this.

Posted by Lucas | August 6, 2012 10:41 AM

Oh... that's because this actually was a main BV post, linked from BV Chicago. I'll be able to enjoy my usual midwest courtesy/silence again soon enough.

Is Lucas saying we should all go onto BV Chicago to teach them the proper way to have a polite discourse, fuckers?

Ok here it goes.. First 2 bands on this post Whooooooo???!! Aloe Blacc = Raphael Saadiq Jr., Tune yards = A cross between an Orangutang and the Ultimate Warrior, Frank Ocean is Billy Ocean's son, and some of these photos of Girls are chunky with Huge titties, and some are skinny with small ones. Discuss.

^ "Discuss"? Think you are late to the party, Skippy .... everything you wrote has already been discussed on here.

I took the train to Philly, then flew to Lolla. I really liked the iPods set. They showed real diversity from track to track! I watched them after stopping by the food tents for some hummus. It was YTINAS. LIN. I never did find out what time Daft Punk was playing.

The new Chili Peppers guitarist is starting to look alot like John Frusciante. Weird.
