Finally landed home for a week of fixing stuff and ordering new parts for the house. But not after playing some great gigs in front of some amazing crowds. Perry Farrell's Lollapalooza festival takes place in 3 different countries at different times. Multiple stages where the crowds can flock to see their favorite Indie of world famous pop acts.
