MNDR - nTelos Wireless Pavilion

Considering that most in attendance were being introduced to MNDR for the first time, she seemed to do a great job keeping their attention and moved the crowd with tight, somewhat dark, hooks and her ethereal voice. Sporting a sundress that was speckled with miniature skulls, she danced about the stage seemingly as transfixed by the music as the crowd.

Duran Duran - 2012 All You Need is Now tour

Duran Duran rolled back the clock at nTelos Wireless Pavilion in Portsmouth, Va. on August 22, 2012. A cool and breezy evening provided the perfect setting for a few thousand fans who were more than happy step back in time, if only for a night. That’s not to say that Duran Duran necessarily joined them–touring in support of their 2010 release, “All You Need is Now.” They provided a mix of fresh hits coupled with a handful of classics that catapulted them to the top of the charts throughout the 80s.

The Dirty Heads - 2012 Cabin by the Sea

The Dirty Heads and Matisyahu rolled into The Norva on August 20, 2012, sharing a co-headline bill. Fans packed into the sold-out venue in Norfolk, Va. and welcomed both artists with raised arms and plenty of love.

Nearly four years after the release of their debut, “Any Port in a Storm,” The Dirty Heads finally dropped their follow-up, “Cabin by the Sea,” in June. The indie release features the same reggae-influenced fusion of surf-rock and rap that made their first effort so endearing.

Halestorm on the Carnival of Madness Tour

Halestorm is having a fantastic year and one of their big breaks came in the most unlikely places….Glee.  While Glee is one of those shows that it’s either loved or hated, one can’t deny the fact that having a song or an entire album featured on the show means being exposed to millions that may not have heard the music before.  Around the time of Glee Halestorm also released the EP Hello, It’s MZ. Hyde and then soon after the full album, The Strange Case Of …, which rose to the top of the charts and I personally can’t think of another band who deserves it more.

It has been awhile since I’ve seen Halestorm live; it was back in 2010 on the Uproar Tour. I actually ran into Lzzy backstage while interviewing New Medicine and she couldn’t have been more kind and welcoming.  Back in 2010 they were the openers on the main stage and today are headlining their own shows and are currently second on the bill of the Carnival of Madness Tour right under Evanescence. After the Carnival of Madness Tour wraps up in the US, the band is headed to Europe through the fall.

Evanescence Brings the Carnival to the Midwest

Evanescence was back at the Rave last night in Milwaukee. It felt like Amy Lee and the band were just there a couple months ago, when in actuality it’s almost been a year. The band took Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen’s group, The Pretty Reckless, on tour as an opening act. This fall Evanescence hit the road with Halestorm, Chevelle, Cavo, and New Medicine on the Carnival of Madness Tour.

Ever since the band announced the release of their third studio album, the band has been on the road and hit some of the major rock festivals this summer. The band even performed at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway in January. Last night Evanescene returned to the Rave before they embark on their UK leg of the current tour.

The Flaming Lips - 2012 Pondamonium

The Flaming Lips show began as though a traveling carnival and junior high school prom had just collided upon the stage. A massive disco ball swung gently in the wind above Coyne, while a number of pre-selected fans dressed as The Wizard of Oz characters danced at the extreme edges. Smoke drifted from the stage, and the crowd. Confetti, streamers and a smoking megaphone all appeared within the first five minutes of the show.

Garbage - 2012 Pondamonium

Garbage walked away from music over seven years ago, smack dab in the middle of their 2005 tour. Road burn-out coupled with a loathing of their record label simply pushed them over the edge. A creative rumbling brought them back together in late 2010 for a self-produced, independent effort. The result was the same Garbage feel with a modernized, electronic vibe called “Not Your Kind of People” that was released in May 2012. Needless to say, their true-to-the-core Madison fan-base were more than ready for Garbage to hit the stage at Pondamonium.

Black Stone Cherry bring their soulful sound to the Main Stage at WIIL ROCK FEST

Black Stone Cherry
WIIL ROCK FEST
Shadow Hill Ranch
Twin Lakes, WI
8/11/2012

 

Their energy and stage presence along with frontman Chris Robertson’s soulful and powerful vocals makes Black Stone Cherry one of the Midwest’s favorite rock bands for good reason.  It was just a year ago Black Stone Cherry graced the stage of the Carnival of Madness tour that landed at Shadow Hill Ranch in Twin Lakes.  This year they return to the main stage to assist in the celebration of 95.1 WIIL Rock’s 20th Anniversary of rocking Illinois and Wisconsin.

Black Stone Cherry is out promoting their most recent release, Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea. The album has spawned their moving single “In My Blood.”  The song peaked at #12 at Active Rock and #4 at Mainstream Rock radio. Watch the official video below. Picking up where “In My Blood” left off, the bands new single, “Like I Roll” is yet another well written song and makes you want to drive with your radio cranked to 11.  There are not a lot of things that are more disappointing than hearing a bands songs and being excited to see them live, only to be let down, knowing the best member of their band was the studio they had months to polish their CD in. I can say with 100% faith, Black Stone Cherry is not that type of band. They are a truly talented group of guys, with one of the most under rated singers of our generation. Its few and far between that you will find such a soulful, powerful singer who also takes part in actually writing the songs they sing.  Black Stone Cherry not only had the crowd rockin at WIIL’S Rock Fest, but the other bands in attendance stood to watch their show, a testament to the strength of their musicianship and songs. Check out Black Stone Cherry’s show when it comes to a City near you, because whatever the ticket price is, it’s more than worth it.

Having interactive yoga sessions for parents and their broods was one of my favorites! I loved watching new and veteran yogis have a blast with their yoga poses. Kids of all ages rocked sun salutations & meditation from New York’s Sweet Soul Yoga. Little yogis even got to play Yoga Jenga! Each piece had a new pose for everyone to do. Genius!

I have to say Kidzapalooza made me sad I didn’t bring my little one this year. Especially since kids 10 and under are FREE!  Kidzapalooza doesn’t only have their own stage and kidz store, they also have interactive play areas to keep your little ones entertained. First I ran into the Q Brothers who were teaching kids how to beat box and rap. It was great listening to kids rap about their favorite colors, foods and animals. Little ones even got to take home a copy of their phat tracks! Next I ran into Lifeway Kefir who had stationary bikes out for kids to ride and a table full of prizes. They were also helping the tikes beat the heat with free popsicles. Rock Star Video Karaoke had kids dancing up a storm in front of green screens singing and dancing to their favorite tunes. offsprings were transformed into rock stars by getting to play their own instruments in the Drumzone. You can’t be a rock star without the right look. No worries! Your rock star in training is able to get glammed with spray on hair-dye from the Punk Hairdoz tent and tatted up with paint on tattoos from the Tattooz tent and really what’s a festival without Tattooz!?

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers (CUT) Blew My Mind at Kidzapalooza

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers (CUT) Blew My Mind at Kidzapalooza

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers Lollapalooza 2012 6

Words can’t even describe how amazed I was by the Chicago Ultimate Tumblers. They awed everyone in Kidzapalooza with their ultimate acrobatic moves! Tumblers jumped off of trampolines leaping over other members of the group and volunteers from the crowd. Some tumblers soared over 17 people! It is definitely a sight to see. I suggest catching them anytime you can! President Orpheus R Floyd says the goal of the CUT is to provide positive after school activity and to focus on mentoring, tutoring and self esteem building. The CUT doesn’t only compete in city-wide competitions; they were also on Season 6 of “America’s Got Talent” and have performed at the White House.

You can follow The CUT on their myspace here . To be awed yourself check out some of their videos here

Do312 Celebrity Kickball 2012

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

It was a controversial game this year! Teams fought over who the real winners were and will be reviewing the tape for bragging rights! It was a close game though, whether it was a tie or really was 7-6 I can’t say. What I can say is it was a great game!

This was Do312′s 3rd year running their Celebrity Kickball game at Lolla. The line-up was amazing! Many celebrity kickballer’s came back to dual over this year’s trophy from Fender made from a real guitar. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Har Mar Superstar and Greg Corner of Kill Hannah came back for a 3 peat. A couple of my favorite newbie’s who came out to play were Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Kaylee Defer from Gossip Girl.

Guy was hilarious on the field. Dying to make his way home he yelled “We’re green, we’re mean! Some of us are lean….” It was awesome. He even took over one of the JBTV’s cameras to get a live perspective of the game. He carried it while up at bat and ran around getting shots of the crowd.

This year was the first time fest goers could actually watch the game. It was great to see Lolla fans talk and take pictures with the celebrities. Aaron Paul got to sign an old (not that old) High School year book for a fellow classmate.

Coping with the Heat at Lollapalooza

xrt misting tentLollapalooza started yesterday to a packed crowd and high heat and full sun.  To say it’s hot outside is an understatement.  When patrons pay big money to spend 3 days out in the heat enjoying their favorite artists there has to be a way to cool down.

Having Lollapalooza in Grant Park makes a great location for a festival with great views such as Lake Michigan and Buckingham Fountain, but one drawback is all the concrete that collects all the rays of the sun and lack of trees to escape from it.  Need to find shade? Here’s where to find it and places to avoid.

The Red Bull Soundstage and stages on the north end of the park were good for keeping down the heat due to the fact there was grass and not concrete. It made all the difference especially as the midday and early afternoon hit.

The BMI stage is the best to escape the sun! The stage is nuzzled between a set of trees where many people came to cool down and may not have even known the artist.

The worst stage to be in for the heat was the Playstation stage in the afternoon.  Yesterday during Die Antwoord’s set, there was a handful of us that walked away to find shade as balls of sweat were rolling off our head and back.  It wasn’t pretty.  The good part was, even when finding shade, we could still hear Die Antwoord’s set.

cta cooling bus lollapalooza

The CTA supplies buses around the park for cooling stations.  Yesterday those buses were packed!  Chicago radio station, WRT supplied a misting station for people to stand in or run through.

Forget sun block? No problem! American Family Insurance was around to give out sun block, ear plugs, and hand sanitizer.

Headed downtown today? Don’t forget to dress cool, but sandals are a no-no! Against the steamy concrete, the flip flops will burn your feet!

The Lollapalooza Lowdown!

coldplay lollapaloozaLollapalooza starts tomorrow and we have the lowdown!

2012 tickets sold out in records time, 71 days prior to the event, but those who didn’t score the coveted tickets can stream the show at http://youtube.com/lollapalooza. Live streams and interviews will be available for Jack White, AVICII, The Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Frank Ocean, The Shins, Florence + The Machine, and more.

Something cool this year is the stand-alone LollaShop.  The Shop is open to the public through August 6th and has Lollapalooza merchandise and merch from Sony, Goorlin Bros. Hats, Baggu plus many more.  The LollaShop is located Thompson Hotel and the Lounge will host events and artist appearances, and yoga.  Make sure to reserve a spot by RSVPing at http://do312.com/lollashop.

When there is just too much to carry, State Farm is providing a bag check. This is free and located west of Buckingham Fountain.

Lolla + Instagram + Free WIFI

This year Lollapalooza is having bands and fans Instagram photos showing up on the jumbotron around the stages.  Remember to tag all Lollapalooza photos this weekend in Instagram with #lolla.  Don’t use Instagram? iPhone and Android photos also show up in the Lollapalooza mobile app that is available for free on Google Play and iTunes.

To assist in uploading all those Instagram photos, Lolla is providing FREE WIFI around the park.  There will be hotspots near Buckingham Fountain, Lederhosen’s Biergarten, Uncorked Win Lounge, all Lolla Lounges, and more.  The network to select is “2012 Lolla.”

What’s Allowed and Not Allowed in the Park

Since it’s been hot around Chicago and the Midwest, festivals such and Summerfest and now Lollapalooza are allowing patrons to bring in 2 SEALED bottles into the festival.  Also allowed is an empty, refillable bottle.  There will be commemorative CamelBak water bottles and packs at merch booths.  The goal is to reduce the amount of plastic containers in the park with partners Boxed Water and Vita Coco Coconut Water.

The FOOD

For the newcomers to Lolla the food is plentiful and diverse.  Chef Graham Elliot returned as the Culinary Ambassador to oversee the food is top notch.

Not everyone eats meat and besides having some great choices from food vendors, there is also the return of the Farmers Market. The Farmers Market will provide fresh fruits and vegetables to those vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free patrons.

Activities

Lollapalooza started with showcasing music, but today Lollapalooza has much more to experience than just music.

Green Workshops

In conjunction with the Farmers Market, there will be brief urban gardening workshops provided by Compass Green. These workshops support education in low-income schools.  These workshops are at the south end of Green Street each day of Lolla at 1p.m.

Kidzapalooza

For those who are bringing the kids along there is Kidzapalooza.  Kids 10 and under enter the festival within Lolla for free.  It has its own stage and interactive games from Rock Star Video Karaoke to hip-hop workshops with the Q Brothers. Face painting is also taken to a whole other level as kids are transformed into rock stars and get a photo shoot all glammed up.

Do312 Celebrity Kickball

For the 3rd year running, DO312 put together a stellar line-up for the game that takes place Saturday morning at 11:15a.m.  at the north end of the festival by the Red Bull Soundstage.  This year’s celebrities include Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Chef Guy Fieri, Ryan Cabrera, Alderman Proco Joe Moreno, Chris Holmes, Greg Corner, Har Mar Superstar, Ryan Paradise, Dave Ziebarth, Kaylee DeFer from Gossip Girl.
