Lollapalooza – Year 3

At the start of this month Sharla, Althea, Hanna, and some non-cafedamourians took off to Chicago for the music festival extravaganza that is LOLLAPALOOZA!

lollapalooza_logo1This was our 3rd annual trip to Chicago, and I think we’re really starting to get into the swing of things down there. We stayed at a hotel directly across from the park, which cut 40 minutes out of our commute every day, and I think made a huge difference! We were even able to pop back to the hotel for a nap, or crackers, or even just to avoid the portapotties.

Sharla’s highlights include… the Puffs of Doom


 It was a cream puff with chocolate peanut butter ice cream draped in EVEN MORE CHOCOLATE! nom nom nom nom

Sharla was also excited about seeing NINE INCH NAILS, THE CURE, LANA DEL REY, TEGAN & SARAH, and MUMFORD AND SONS. DADA LIFE crushed it!

Althea was most excited to see EMELI SANDE, JESSIE WARE, BEN HOWARD, THE KILLERS, and ALEX CLARE –  who she didn’t even realize was performing until she, Sharla, and their friend Daniel showed up at the end of the set just in time to catch Althea’s favorite song of his. Crazy Lollapalooza timing!

Jessie Ware


Mad props to our customer Humphrey who suggested we see Shovels & Rope. They were an amazing husband and wife team who just owned every inch of the Redbull Stage!

To sum up – Lollapalooza was amazing, and while we’re all sad that it’s over we are all really excited to see what Lolla 2014 has in store.
