Saturday @ Perry’s: Calvin Harris

SHARE Saturday @ Perry’s: Calvin Harris


If you’ve turned on pop radio anytime in the last year, you’re probably familiar with the music of Calvin Harris, even if you don’t know it. The Scottish DJ and songwriter has lent his production skills to a number of British and American pop stars, most prominently for Rihanna’s No.1 hit “We Found Love.”

A seasoned UK festival veteran, Harris demonstrated his experience by skillfully tailoring his Lollapalooza show to be more clubby than radio-friendly, mixing a few of his pop hits into a set of mostly electro and house. The energy began to flag noticeably towards the end of the set as large groups of people began to migrate towards the main stage where the Red Hot Chili Peppers had begun to play.

Harris’ infectious single “Feel So Close” briefly restored life to the dance party, but by the time he finished, the sound from the Chili Peppers’ set threatened to extinguish the Perry’s energy.
