“Simply put, Lindsay Barr tore the place apart.  She evoked the rock gods and left a ton of sweat on that stage. I am still in awe. She kicked ass and took absolutely no prisoners. She is a treasure in this city.  We still have a few hundred bodies at Millennium Park that she slew at Ribfest. Crows are loving her!!!”
