blackjoelewislolla @AndyShore I made it into Lollapalooza just in time to see Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears, after some worse than expected traffic on the way downtown. As I made my way across the field towards their stage, I got a text from Zack telling me he was at that show too. I responded saying I was excited to see them, likening them to a male version of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings. If there is one area where the Venn Diagram of Zack and my musical tastes cross, it’s funk. The other thing we agreed on during this set? That Black Joe Lewis is redundant. Joe Lewis was black. Zack said he wouldn’t call his band White Larry Bird, but I think that’s a great name that Bill Simmons would be proud of.

 

The first song that greeted me to Lollapalooza 2009 was “Sugarfoot,” which is how I discover Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears. That music video is part of @MattSilver’s extensive music video collection, which I now make sure he doesn’t skip. The funky tune with horns that make your head bop kept me in high spirits, despite the continuing rain. “Bitch, I Love You” was another highlight of the perfect early afternoon set at Lollapalooza.
