Yesterday, Urban Nomad talked with L.A. faves Fitz and the Tantrums. Today he takes us behind the scenes at this past weekend's Lollapalooza. As he explains:
"I have only missed three Lollapaloozas in its 20 year history. I went to the first one in 1991 and the first international one in Santiago, Chile. Having an uncle by the name of Perry Farrell certainly facilitated this, but it has also taken quite a few ninja skills on my part.
"Being the public face of the fest, [Farrell] is faced with a daunting amount of press sit-downs, meet-and-greets, tech meetings, performances and people just wanting to take pictures with him. I unexpectedly got caught up in the whirlwind after filming his last performance of the day at the Kidsapalooza stage, where he jammed with Peter Distefano, the guitarist for Porno For Pyros.
"Below is a short documentary about that experience, which also included the most epic golf cart ride in history. Let's just say 12 people being driven in the rain by Perry's 10-year-old son was not the safest thing in the world. But it sure was fun!"
