Lollapalooza Day 2

The weather completely 180′d on everyone for Day 2 of Lolla. In fact, it almost threatened to break 100 degrees! I was commenting with a fellow photog about how irritating it is when sweat drips in your eye when trying to shoot.  It was almost oppressively hot.  But I say again, nevertheless, the bands didn’t give up, so neither did I.

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s put on a great closing set, but the stage lighting was awful because it required a lot of blacklight which, while visually appealing, doesn’t translate well on film. So it was difficult to get good shots of them, especially amidst the most photographers I’ve ever seen gathered in a single photo pit, elbowing for a decent shot. Next time I think I’ll rent a longer lens. That way I can beat them down with it and then get a good close-up :)
