The only thing missing from Tame Impala’s trippy light and video presentation is the cover of darkness. Somehow, this band’s time-bending, shape-shifting music makes more sense at night, rather than under the blazing early evening Sun. But these Australians are tough as nails when it comes to weathering heat and sunshine — they play their entire set without sunglasses. Though Kevin Parker is a master guitarist, his music is well beyond what most new millennial rock bands are offering. He turns his rock songs into what could be epic club tracks. “Let it Happen” manages to be both cerebral and danceable at once. Parker’s deeper exploration of keyboards and club music has broadened his musical scope, so that Tame Impala now moves fluidly among what were once deemed distinct categories: progressive rock, soul, psychedelia, electronic dance music. He’s just as liable to conjure the majesty of King Crimson as he is the post-house flourishes of Kaskade. – [Chicago Tribune]

Day two of Lollapalooza 2015 featured sets from Metallica, Sam Smith, Tame Impala, Brand New, Django Django, Tyler the Creator, The Tallest Man on Earth, Death from Above 1979 and lots more. A little trouble too: The Tribune reports that there were at least five arrests reported, most of them drug related. Texas rapper Travi$ Scott was charged with disorderly conduct for inviting the crowd to jump the security barricades to get closer to the stage.

Sunday (8/2) is the final day of Lollapalooza in Chicago’s Grant Park, featuring Florence + the Machine, TV on the Radio, FKA Twigs, A$AP Rocky, Bully and more. Albert Hammond Jr, who also plays today, will be be interviewed in the Toyota Tent by BrooklynVegan Lolla correspondent Billy Jones. And if you can’t be there, Lollapalooza is streaming live starting at 2 PM Central (3 PM Eastern) and you can watch below.
