After a full day at Lollapalooza yesterday, I headed over to the House of Blues to catch the sold-out National show. The band was in fine form playing songs encompassing their entire catalog. Here are some quick note from the festival on Saturday.
North Hills with passion and zest that made you feel good. The band was truly appreciative of the modest crowd that came out for their mid-afternoon set.
Next was a band that I was looking forward to seeing and boy they did not disappoint. Deer Tick hails from Providence, Rhode Island and they blew me away with their brand of rock. John McCauley’s raspy voice added tons of character the the great hooks that their songs posses. His voice at times sounds eerily like Bob Dylan with a dash of The Boss. McCauley was thoroughly enjoying himself and invited the whole crowd the 8th floor of the Hilton for a pool party! I will be definitely be checking these guys out next time they are in town.
I have a long day ahead of me and I am very very excited for Soundgarden tonight.
