Hot Hot Heat: Lollapalooza 2005 in Pictures

By Scott Smith in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 25, 2005 6:41AM

We're a little sunburned, a little dehydrated and sort of exhausted because Chicagoist was there as Lollapalooza 2005 rocked Chicago this 2005_07_25_lolla.jpgweekend. Organizers needed to prove that Lolla was still a viable commerical entity with acts like Pixies, The Killers, Arcade Fire, Death Cab For Cutie and more. While they accomplished that feat, it remains to be seen what the future holds for the festival.

We'll be posting reviews later today but until then check out our Flickr photos from Day One and Day Two. Because this was such a momentous event for Chicago and the music world as a whole, lots of news and entertainment folks attended. We've been catching up on parts we missed thanks to Metromix and The New York Times.
