Lollapalooza: Coral Sky Amphitheater, West Palm Beach, Florida
Will Hermes, Spin, September 1997
"DO YOU WANNA see the first band, or do you wanna see me jump to my death?" a paunchy MC bellowed from a perch atop Lollapalooza's second stage. A no-brainer, to be sure: Given the glut of competing package tours and the least impressive lineup in the festival's seven-year history (made weaker still by the 11th-hour dropouts of Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Dr. Octagon), you couldn't blame the 80 or so early risers in attendance for rallying for a little carnage. Alas, they got Inch.
