It was very stressful running back and forth to everything. Overall, I’m pleased that I got to see all those cool bands. There were a lot of instances where I gave up seeing somebody to somebody else…..almost every set come to think of it. Whoever set up the times are mean, evil people. I even missed Snoop Dogg! It was because I was seeing Lou Reed at the time, and I know I made the right decision. Even still, that’s a big bummer in my book.

Lou Reed was amazing. He’d be my number one pick for the festival. I mean the guy was in one of my all time favorite bands, The Velvet Underground.

Otherwise if I could only see one performance from the festival again, it would easily be Crystal Castles. They have an amazing live show. I was excited to hear some new stuff from them. Guess what? It was awesome!!!!!!!!!

I don’t know if I’ll go to Lolla again next year or not, but this was a great trip.
