On this episode of Live Fix Radio we’re continuing our exploration of Bon Iver and the power of the little things and chatting with fellow concert fan Isabel about how this picture of Justin Vernon’s “that was then” tattoo inspired Isabel to get her own tattoo. Isabel’s also tells us why she’ll never forget crowdsurfing during Bon Iver at Coachella and soaking in Cage The Elephant with her dad during a sublime downpour at Lollapalooza. Rock on and thanks for listening!

Last year at this time Rothbury 2009 was in question.  So let’s cross our fingers and hope for Rothbury 2010.   In the meantime take a trip back to re-live Rothbury 2009’s best moments with The Dead, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Matisyahu, Ani DiFranco and more.

And make sure to check out all the extra Live Fix coverage of The Green Team, My Sensual Collision with the Michigan State Police and more in the Three Part wrap-up.

What Was Lollapalooza's Biggest Health Issue?

Standard

Do you know what the “single biggest health issue” was on Day 2 of Lollapalooza?   Bursting bloody eardrums?  Crushing bones in the mosh pit? Dehydration? Drug use, perhaps? Nope.   It was none of these.

I have to admit I was surprised. But according to Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot video review,  it was…foot blisters.  

Yes, my friends.  Nasty, uncomfortable and painful foot blisters.  

They’re a music festival menace to be reckoned with.  Not wearing the right footware can turn a fun, pleasurable festival into one big,  juicy and ripe for the popping painful puss bubble blister.   

Believe me, I know.

I’ve had them before when I covered Lollapalooza. And it seems that, yet again, the unfortunate build up of puss and mucous on the surface of the feet of roving music fans kept the first aid staff at Lollapalooza 2009 busy.  Do yourself a favor and keep your festival feet happy and healthy here and plan ahead for your next festival here.

But fan’s feet (and sense of touch) weren’t the only senses under attack.   Kot’s ears where under attack, too as he reports that Animal Collective’s set was making him drift into disappointing oblivion.

So, according to Kot (and I agree) when you go to a festival make sure to a) wear a comfortable pair of broken-in shoes and no flip flops and b)  stay away from Animal Collective until they’ve mastered their live show a bit more and can translate the beauty of Merriweather Post Pavilion into a worthy performance.

No, I didn’t forget to mention that a 39-year-old man died on Friday at Lollapalooza.  I’ll be doing a separate post about the tragic occurrence and take a look at some of this year’s live concert deaths (sounds like fun, eh?).
