Once again Chicago offers great entertainment and cultural at this year’s Lollapalooza in Grant Park.
I ventured out to Grant Park on Saturday afternoon to soak in the sweet sounds of Gnarls Barkley, the Flaming Lips, Thievery Corporation, and Manu Chao. The long trek to our destination left us (like may other patrons) thirsty for the festivities, and like the other Lollapalooza events I have been too they provided plenty of musical fluids to tickle my palette.
Making our way through the throngs of hippies, hip hopsters, new agers, and dozens of other sub cultures, we found our way to the ATT stage to catch Gnarls Barkely. This funk-a-delic group composed by popular producer CeeLo keep the crowd waiting for hits monster hit, “Crazy.” And, once the melody concluded, scores of supposed fans bolted to their next concert of choice.
All in all it was a great event, but good luck catching a cab after the show…as ten’s of thousands of people scurry for ride. I would suggest taking your time and walk north on Michigan to people watch, shop, eat, or drink.
