Very dope new remix out, with the legendary R. Kelly appearing on a "Trying to be Cool," a single from Phoenix's latest album, "Bankrupt!" Phoenix are a great band from France who blew up here in the States a few years ago. If you've been alive since 2009 and have a pair of ears, you've definitely heard them. Kellz provides some new vocals and his usual flair to this already great track.
Mumford and Sons and Postal Service went head to head in Saturday’s most coveted headliner spot. To be expected, these were great, but check out what else happened this weekend besides the perfect segueway from Lumineer's set to Mumford and Sons, the Postal Service farewell, Haim (pronounced "hime"), and the red red lipstick of lead singer of The Cure.
The Gowhere team attended the #CKOne shows throughout the weekend. Eve sampled her new CD, including her single with Dawn Richard she personally dubs her "lollipop" song. She played classics, club hits, Ruff Ryder hits, and future classics off her upcoming album. Look out for our exclusive video of her performance coming soon!
She first appeared at Lolla in 2011 and since then she’s had smashed hits such as “Lights” and “I Need Your Love” f/ Calvin Harris. She tweeted that Saturday was one of her best performances to date – which says a lot because she does a show almost every other day according to her Instagram. Though she says her last Chicago show wasn’t her best work, I still thought it was dazzling. Her Saturday show proves that she can really put in work.
The greasy spills are just windows to heaven. The corndog was rich and flaky with a lobster meat sausage topped with a zippy aioli sauce, herbs, and smoky cayenne. Grahamwich has had some serious mixed review since their opening downtown, but after the festival I definitely will give them another try later this week.
The sign language specialist to Phoenix evening set at the Bud Light Stage
How do they keep up with Phoenix lyrics. Two sign linguist switched off between songs and danced the night away. Sun drenched smiles and people grooving out to Phoenix at the Bud Light Sound Stage. People were friendly and not pushing and shoving. Why aren’t all festivals like this? I had a fun time just drinking beers and chilling on my picnic blanket. Good music and good vibes, perfect for the last day of Lolla… in contrast to 2 Chainz show at the Grove. Aren't they just adorable?
The 2 Chainz show was something else... Crowds fled in and out to see the spectacle at The Grove stage. He put on a show but there was some drama ranging from thrown bottles on stage to a person climbing a pole. And he wonders why he gets injured at music festivals. The crowd was so rowdy, but do you expect anything less from 2 Chainz? The best thing of all? - I know him...
First I thought it was attached to her shirt but then a piece broke off and we realized it was a necklace. Not only is her style cheeky, but so are her lyrics. The London songstress wowed an crowd of new listeners and devoted fans. I would definitely keep my eyes peeled for this girl. Could she be like the future Ellie Goulding?
