Lollapalooza 2006 - Friday Pictures

2006_08_subways.jpgWe survived the first day of Lollapalooza! We got to see some amazing acts like The Raconteurs, duh! Saw some legends - Sleater Kinney, of course. And we saw some promising bands - The Subways! Learned about egg discrimination from Ryan Adams. But, the main thing that we learned is there is a lot of walking to do at Lollapalooza. Wear some comfortable shoes when heading out the rest of the weekend and if crowds aren't your thing - check out some of our photos on Flickr from Day 1 of Lollapalooza.

One of the most energetic sets of the day was put on by The Subways at 12:30 p.m. Charlotte, the bass player, is seen above. This was one of our favorites from the pics of the day. Have fun checking out the rest. Remember to tag your photos Chicagoist, so we can see how you enjoyed Lollapalooza!
