One of the biggest festivals of the year, Lollapalooza, took place in Chicago last week. If you were lucky enough to be there on Friday you got to see the likes of Father John Misty, Nine Inch Nails, Ghost B.C., and of course Crystal Castles.

When we thought about this week’s ‘Picture of the Week’, we were perplexed on how to sum up all the great Lollapalooza performances into one pic. Although it was a daunting task, when it came down to it, we wouldn’t respect ourselves if we didn’t choose Alice Glass of Crystal Castles. The Toronto Duo are known for their chaotic performances, strobe lights, and fog filled venues. Glass, who could be considered the female version of Jim Morrison took the stage with a bottle of Jameson and of course dragging a cigarette. In the photo above, you can see Glass jumping into the crowd for fans to touch, awe, and marvel over. To Rukkus, this is what Lollapalooza is all about, performers having a great time and recognizing what’s most important, their fans.
