Not surprisingly, the best live music of the “weekend” was NOT at Lollapalooza, but at a sold out after show at the Empty Bottle Thursday. Blood Orange took the stage at 11ish and absolutely blew me away.
I have no words for the funk that transpired.
But then, Chicago goes and f’s things up, as Dev Hynes (aka Blood Orange) says he was assaulted by security at Lollapalooza
Ughhhhhh. How did security have time when there were thousands of drunk 12/13/14 year olds running around? They’re the real menace! Strange priorities, guys. Strange priorities.
