Lollapalooza 2009: The Recap

Yesterday I made it to Day 3 of Lollapalooza 2009. I had a great time reliving 1993 with Jane’s Addiction and Snoop — Lady of Rage even made an appearance — though the organizers did throw in some solid bands from 2009, too. Ranking the bands that I saw or mostly heard:

1. Jane’s Addiction (probably a given, being that it’s my list, but very exciting. Also, Eric Avery really looks like Dennis Quaid)
2. The Raveonettes (the surf-guitar thing works great live)
3. Snoop (great show and he was smart to get a live backing band)
4. Cold War Kids (haven’t heard much of their stuff but liked it)
5. Kaiser Chiefs (like them a lot but they missed a few songs I like)
6. Silversun Pickups (good stuff)
7. Vampire Weekend (not a very exciting show)

See the Grooveshark widget down below if you want to hear some tunes from each.
