Pinegrove & Sunflower Bean played the Toyota Music Den, which continues @ Lollapalooza 2016 (pics)
Two down and two days to go of bands live in the Toyota Music Den at this year's four-day Lollapalooza. Check out the schedule and stop by for some intimate sets on Saturday and Sunday.
On Thursday, we were excited to co-host Pinegrove whose current tour is being documented on BrooklynVegan, and who we also caught at Lollapalooza earlier in the day. They played their 3pm set acoustic. Without the "loudest-noise-I've-ever-made" drums and swelling keys of what is now full-band Pinegrove, the songs boiled down to their most important pieces. Evan frequently took the time between songs to appreciate the bands who played before them, his encounter with Danny Brown's "crazy pants" and the buzz of all the festival's stages mimicking the average hum of multiple songs in his head. Hall's discomfort with their much-larger earlier stage entirely dissipated once they took the Toyota Music Den's intimate setting in.
Photos from their set, and of NYC's own Sunflower Bean who played after them are in the gallery above. Stay tuned for more coverage from the whole weekend, and meanwhile also check out our photos from all of day one at Lolla 2016.
