For the past two months, I had this same basic exchange many times:
Me: I’m going to Lollapalooza.
Other Person: Cool. Who’s playing?
Me: LCD Soundsystem….uh…. Hold on, I know some other bands will be there…
With that kind of blinding excitement built up in me, you can bet that I made sure I was front and center-left for James and Co. Just hearing “North American Scum” (my favorite song of the year) live was just perfect, but hearing “Daft Punk is Playing at My House” before Daft Punk was too much. As others have pointed out, James was crying out “you’ve got to set them up!” while Daft Punk’s equipment was being set up. I don’t think it gets better than that.
