Thank you, Spin magazine, for never failing to broach every musical topic from multiple angles. In addition to their ’50 Best Things We Saw at Lollapalooza’ list (which, perhaps inevitably, is a mix of cringe-inducing crowd behavior, as well as killer performances), the seminal music magazine captured impromptu portraits of up-and-coming acts (above), and posted the full performance by Queens of the Stone Age, who, even without Dave Grohl on drums, are sauntering closer to rock-royalty status with each new record. Seeing that led us to stumble upon full performances by Phoenix. And Vampire Weekend. (There’s a video of Nine Inch Nails’ headlining set too, but it contains bad words. Click here if you’re into it.)

Musicians pictured above:
Chance the Rapper | Haim | Dillon Francis
Crystal Castles | Hot Chip
Deap Vally | Ellie Goulding | Guards
