I don’t remember which came first, buying the Lollapalooza 3-day pass or the MLB schedules being released. But it was unfortunate for me that the Mets/Cubs series in Chicago coincided with Lollapalooza which was being headlined by Pearl Jam. Luckily though, Friday’s game was an afternoon game so I was able to see Ben Harper, the only performance I really cared to see. And luckily times two for me was that Saturday’s lineup consisted of performances I didn’t mind missing. But Sunday, Pearl Jam, no way I could miss that, not even for history.
Earlier in the day we also saw Kings of Leon (very enjoyable) and My Morning Jacket (absolutely unbearable!) I had to reserve my camera battery to make sure it lasted till the end, so I only took pictures of KOL when Eddie Vedder made a special appearance for a song.
