While we just posted the recently released schedule for Lollapalooza, there is more news coming out of Perry Farrell’s office. I can just see him now — writing emails, looking at balance sheets, calling meetings in the boardroom all while wearing a very tight, sequined suit.
All kidding aside, the festival has announced some officially supported late night shows. The Official Aftershows will take place Thursday through Saturday of the festival weekend, and they are all pretty solid and feature a really good mix of the smaller venues that Chicago has to offer. If you are planning on attending Lollapalooza from out of town, definitely check out one of these shows. Follow the jump for the bands and ticket info.
If you attended a different show each night, paying careful attention to hit the four major rock clubs in Chicago (Double Door, Metro, Empty Bottle and Schubas) and also the HOB and Congress Theater, you could definitely get a good feel for the Chicago live music scene, all in a matter of only three days! That’s if you can pull yourself out the door after spending those super long days in the sun down in Grant Park.
I’ll definitely be trying to hit the Rogue Wave/Dr. Dog show down the street from my apartment, but Saturday is more of a bind. And that Bloc Party/CSS/Does it Offend You, Yeah? show at the HOB does look quite tempting. That said, the second Chromeo announces an afterparty, it changes everything.
