The Blisters at Lollapalooza: Once more for the kids
A couple of hours before the Blisters played Lollapalooza on Saturday, a drum circle broke out a stone's throw from the stage. The drum circle was composed of small children and toddlers who banged incessantly on bongos and whatever was placed before them, sounding surprisingly like an adult drum circle. While rap erupted at other stages around Grant Park and punishing bass lines rearranged fans' DNA, here at the Kidzapalooza stage, a parent walked past carrying his son upside down, the boy giggling, reaching for the grass. A pair of girls in pink fedoras twirled and flopped in a heap at the lip of the stage.
