Introducing Jennifer Finch’s Lollapalooza Diaries.

In 1993 when I was playing with L7, I kept a diary of our Lollapalooza tour. Pictures of people and year book style notes written to me fill the pages along with photos of our adventures, people on the tour and other generally weird shit.. Think Nick Cave drinking Slimfast. Or the alienation in the eyes of every member of The Smashing Pumpkins. Except Billy, his eyes were just filled. I haven’t been able to get it together enough to put this stuff into a book, but I’m glad I can share it through here. Maybe some day… Maybe never..

  1. Hey Jennifer, are you still excited about this project? It really should be written–would be a great loss not to see your diaries from the time. Most of what i've seen is from the perspective of performers who want the whole event to be remembered as an epoch-making, heroic, kind of thing. I'd love to read how all of it appeared from your angle–nick cave staying trim and the pumpkins' disoriented-ness…hope you can find time to pull the book together. I like the idea of maintaining the diary-form, much better than a memoir.
