ChiIL Mama's Flashback:
Slash & Perry Farrell, Kidzapalooza Stage 2008
all photos by Bonnie Kenaz-Mara for ChiILMama.comFunniest thing to me was all the little kids were saying, "Look. It's Slash from GUITAR HERO!!" LOL.
ChiIL Mama's daughter Sage, Kidza 2008, rockin' her Small Paul (Paul Frank) Tee with a caricature of Perry Farrell on it. Perry later signed the shirt for her.
Finally, check out our ChiIL Tips. We've been there ALL 3 days of EVERY year Lollapalooza has called Grant Park, Chicago home. So whether you're going with babe's in backpacks and jogging strollers, toddlers in tow, or getting a sitter and travelin' light... we've got you covered!
Before You Go:
Check out Lollapalooza's main site to customize your weekend. I can tell you what we think is ChiIL... but Lolla has a gazillion bands, food, fun, eco-friendly fare, booths and people watching to spare. So take some time to make a plan customized to YOU and your tastes, even if you ditch it later and just improv it.
