Passion Pit were fantastic last night
That was my third time seeing them and it was easily their best performance
Walk away, stupre. Walk away.
And now I can say, I was at that show. Sabbath. Wow!
Ozzy sounds/ looks like shit...wow is right...
Black Sabbath killed it! Although I felt like Ozzy began the show a little weak, missing the timing a little bit, he pulled it off and gave a fucking solid show.
On another note, I'm really craving for a deep dish pizza from Giodano's but I can't possibly finish one by my self. Anyone interested in meeting for lunch and sharing a deep dish pizza?
There's one in Jackson and Franklin, I'm in the area. I think I'm go to go on top of the Sears tower just for fun. I'll send you a pm
he looked healthy too.

Chicago's weather LOL - poor attendees
Breaking news Lollapalooza shuts down as heavy storms take stage
4:12 p.m. CDT, August 4, 2012
A line of thunderstorms bearing down on Chicago from the west caused organizers to shut down the music festival Lollapalooza and resulted in severe thunderstom warnings across the area.
According to Tribune reporters on the scene, Lollapalooza, in Grant Park, was evacuated as the storm, now approaching the city from the southwest, barreled in.
"It will be closed as of 3:30 p.m. due to inclement weather," said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety of the park.
It was not known if the event will be canceled for the rest of the day because it depends on how severe the weather is, police officials said.
All of the bands stopped more or less at the same time and people were encouraged to leave by the bands before they exited the stage.
In a release, organizers said festival-goers are being directed to pre-established underground evacuation and shelter sites along Michigan Avenue in the Grant Park North, Grant Park South and East Monroe Street garages. All can be entered through vehicle entrances on Michigan Avenue.
The National Weather Service warnings (they're updating rapidly and can be accessed off the NWS page here) are in effect until the fast-moving storm passes.
The storms are presently running in a line from the northwest corner of McHenry southeast to Kankakee and are headed northeast at about 50 m.p.h., according to the National Weather Service.
Those storms include hail, rain heavy enough to result in flash flood warnings, wind gusts up to 70 m.p.h. and lightning. There have already been reports of 70 m.p.h. winds in Aurora and South Wilmington.
Chicago-area temperatures peaked in the low-to-mid 90s before those thunderstorms arrived to cool things off. Combined with higher humidity, the temperatures made being outside uncomfortable, with a heat index approaching 105.
It'll take until after midnight for the storms to move completely out of the area, and Sunday looks like a beautiful day, with some clouds and temperatures in the mid-80s.
Saturday's 90-degree temperatures made it the 39th day this year with temperatures that high; the record is 47, set in 1988, according to the National Weather Service. Saturday also was the 40th straight day with a high in the 80s or warmer, according to agency figures; that's the third longest ever behind 46 days in 2010 and 42 in 1955.
There’s a good chance both of those records fall this summer – we've just entered August.
