Date: August 4, 2013
City: Chicago, IL
Venue: Grant Park
JAKE BUGG – English singer-songwriter. Some stuff is mellow, but a good portion is rockin’.
NIGHTMARE & THE CAT – I liked this British-American indie rock band.
THE MOWGLI’S – This Southern California band drew a ridiculously large crowd. I think the organizers may have underestimated their popularity. I was too far back to get a photo.
THE VACCINES – This English indie rock band were great!
VAMPIRE WEEKEND – This New York band was a lot of fun. The crowd was even better. They were creating dance circles and conga lines.
2 CHAINZ – Hip Hop artist from Georgia. The crowd was really into his set.
Since the 2013 line up consisted of several bands I had already seen I had more time to spend discovering new bands on the smaller stages. I look forward to doing the same in 2014.
