Lollapalooza 2010 photos

Deena and I, as well as several other Pittsburgh bloggers (check out BNAC, PGH Music Report and The Pop Eye) attended Lollapalooza in Chicago this weekend. I'm not sure if I'll be posting much in the way of a review, as I've posted my opinions at length elsewhere, but I'll share some of the weekend's photos and list my favorite shows of the weekend.

My top 15 shows of Lollapalooza 2010:
1. Mavis Staples
2. Gogol Bordello
3. Frightened Rabbit
4. Arcade Fire
5. Lady Gaga
6. Matt & Kim
8. Empire of the Sun
9. New Pornographers
10. Hockey
11. AFI
12. Neon Hitch
13. Los Amigos Invisibles
14. BBU
15. Warpaint

AFI took us back to 2004 with several great tracks from Sing the Sorrow:

Newcomer Neon Hitch is a Nelly Furtado-meets-Ke$ha star in the making who turned the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army" into an exotic, mystical pop song:

The Ike Reilly Assassination gave their all despite a very small crowd:
