Lollapalooza: Wherein I discover a new band

After a short break, I headed to the north end of the park to see City And Colour, the side project of Alexisonfire's Dallas Green.

While I sat on the asphalt waiting for the band to come on (it would be another 45 minutes), I listened to the band playing on a nearby stage.

They were good. So good, in fact, that I left my really good spot in front of City And Colour's stage to go watch them.

The band was Noah & The Whale. Their music is bouncier than a bouncy castle at a state fair and it's plain old fun. Something about it was infectious and that's what drew me over.

Noah & The Whale is definitely my Discovery Of The Festival for this year's Lolla.

I did go back to see City and Colour. Green's a great songwriter and his angsty, manly songs have even more power with a full band behind him.

I didn't stick around the whole time because I wanted to see The Cars (and City And Colour's coming to Omaha soon).
