20 Hours in Chicago - Lollapalooza

Saturday afternoon at 2pm I arrived at the airport to hop on my flight to Chicago. My buddy Luke had told me he had an extra artist pass to go to Lollapalooza with Third Eye Blind so, after debating for about 30 seconds I said screw it and bought my tickets. Between Saturday at 1pm and Monday morning at 3am, I spent about 15 hours traveling for 15 waking hours in Chicago, and It was worth every second. After a nap on the plane and a couple shots at my friend's apartment, we finally showed up to watch their show as one of the official Lollapalooza afterparties.

After recovering from our late night and grabbing brunch and couple bloody marys we were off to the festival. We wandered for a bit, and then made moves to 3eb's stage and headed to the back where we met up with Luke. Watching them play in front of tens of thousands of people, and being on stage for it, is an experience I will never forget. Here are some of the photos and a full album will be up in a few days. Thanks to Luke for the hookup, and the guys of Third Eye Blind for being okay with me hanging around all the time.
