Friday, August 5 – Sony Stage, 3:00 p.m.
I don’t care what you are doing at 3 p.m. on Friday, cancel it and make your way to the Sony Stage to see Foster The People. Back in March when they literally had just a three-song EP out, I got to see these guys four nights in a row at Book & Stage at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas and each show was better than the last. In the months since, their debut LP Torches was released and debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 Chart, “Pumped Up Kicks” is still riding high 18 or so months after it initially surfaced, they tore apart SXSW, Coachella, Glastonbury and more top festivals, the video for their second single “Helena Beat” dropped, “Houdini” was featured in the premiere episode of Entourage and did I mention that these guys were selling out shows long before any of this occurred? Trust me when I tell you, if you have tickets to Lollapalooza, you better not miss this show.
Here’s my personal favorite off Torches, “Warrant.”
