Given this year's summer weather conditions in Chicago -- chilly with a taste of sunlight -- nobody expected the onslaught of rain and wind that was August 7th, 2009. Incidentally, that happened to make up the opening day of Perry Farrell's summer music extravaganza, otherwise known as Lollapalooza. As fans rolled in at the crack of noon, rain followed... and lots of it. Some might say it was a dreary English day, which seemed fitting given the talent headlining -- Depeche Mode, for those unsavvy with geography.
