The Gaslight Anthem @ Lollapalooza 2009
Gaslight Anthem

12:35 p.m. (1:35 p.m. est)

It's raining in Chicago, which is perfect weather for an outdoor festival. Good thing I brought a raincoat.

Most people weren't as fortunate and had to buy a poncho for $5 outside of the festival. Who knows how much one costs inside the grounds.

While hiding from the drizzle in the media tent, I'm listening to Hey Champ. I haven't heard them before, but they're a sort of pop indie group. Like what I've heard so far.

I had planned to get here earlier and see Hockey at 11:30, but catching the train and walking a mile or more to Grant Park got me here a little too late.

I don't have anyone in particular that I want to see until Bon Iver at 3 p.m., so I'm probably going to wander the grounds and familiarize myself. []

That live report from Lollapalooza comes to us from Sounds like not a blast so far. And there is a STREAM (a poorly advertised one).

Like All Points West this past weekend, Chicago has rain, Chicago has Hey Champ, and Chicago has a random stream of some of the bands at the festival. Unlike All Points West, Chicago has The Gaslight Anthem (I'm watching and listening to them on the stream as I type this) (they allow umbrellas there).

Tonight's Lolla headliners are Kings of Leon and Depeche Mode. Stream schedule below...
