Fleet Foxes tells Lollapalooza crowd: Chicago Diner is the best in the world

Many bands performing at Lollapalooza in Chicago this weekend have been eating at The Chicago Diner. Thanks for the "shout out" by Josh Noel in the Metromix blog for reporting that Fleet Foxes's singer Robin Pecknold plugged the Chicago Diner "the best vegan place in the world."

Here's the actual Metromix mention and link.

5 p.m. PlayStation Stage Fleet Foxes are one of the few bands that work on any stage, from dim clubs to Friday's venue -- a sprawling festival. The Foxes' hour-long set was familiar to anyone who has seen them before, drawing largely from their "Sun Giant" EP and self-titled debut LP. As always, they sounded pristine -- broad, majestic and beautiful, the kind of soundtrack you'd want at the top of the Rockies, but which sounds equally perfect in a soggy Grant Park. Their four-part harmonies and rustic jangle filled the space flawlessly. And a note to non-meat eaters: singer Robin Pecknold plugged the Chicago Diner, in Boys Town, as "the best vegan place in the world." So there.
