Lollapalooza quick check-in...

Top Three Performances of Day 1 at Lollapalooza 2007*:

1. LCD Soundsystem
2. The Polyphonic Spree
3. Blonde Redhead

* I am keeping Daft Punk out the running for this honor for two reasons: 1) it simply would not be fair to the rest of the performers to compare them to Daft Punk and 2) I have seen them before, at Coachella 2006 (see my review of that show here), and that was easily the best show I'd seen in the past decade, if not ever, so my Lolla 2007 experience was informed by that experience. Expectations are a bitch.

Ted Leo, The Rapture, and The Black Keys were also really good, too.

My whole body is sore today: my feet, my back, my sinuses.
