Lettuce Throws Down Late Night Lollapalooza Rager [Gallery/Recap]

first_imgLettuce played a sold out Lollapalooza late night at the intimate Bottom Lounge in Chicago, IL last Saturday, July 31st. The crowd was fired up from the start, as the band truly performed late night starting a bit after 12:30 AM. Much of the audience had spent the day getting down at Lolla and the warmed up energy was palatable.  As Lettuce took the stage, bassist Jesus Coomes took the mic and hyped the crowd up! Before long, the funk was rolling and the funk was deep.As has been the trend in 2016, the show took on a very loose vibe with all sort of improvisational highlights. Ryan Zoidis particularly shined with his saxophone and pedals, creating all sorts of sexy grooves that had the room moving. The Shady Horns were anything but shady on this night as the spotlight clearly shined on them.The continued path towards improvisation has lead the band into some far out spaces that had the sold out crowd worked into a frenzy. The type of energy that only seems to appear from improvisation. This show seemed to have more of a collective vibe then virtuosic soloing, and these adventures into the unknown lead to a legendary performance and continues to show that the sky is the limit for Lettuce Funk.Photos by Skol Shotz Photography, full gallery below.
