we saw phoenix ages ago at the double door. they ROCKED. it remains one of my most favorite shows ever. it was before lost in translation and they were on the verge. they have, in the intervening years, become one of my favorite bands. so, i was really excited to see them at lollapalooza. they did not disappoint.
at one point thomas mars said that it was the biggest crowd they'd ever played for. they were totally living the rock star dream last night - thousands of adoring fans all singing along and dancing to their music. they all just looked so happy and like they were having SO MUCH FUN. all kinds of awesome.
