Lollapalooza Afterparty List


Nothing gets me saying, "Where's the party at!" like spending over eight hours a day in the sun, drinking and watching bands. Well... my fellow like-minded partygoers, you're in luck because below you'll find a list of all the post-Lolla happenings going on around town this weekend. Whether its shaking your ass to DJ sets by Flosstradamus, getting your indie rock head nod on with an intimate performance by Of Montreal, sceneing it up with Steve Aoki or remembering the "good old days" with a SUPER intimate performance from Sonic Youth, there's a little something for everyone.

For those of you coming in from out of town... here's how it works in Chicago. Sunday-Friday, all the bars close at 2:00am, except for a select few with a late night liquor license. Those close at 4:00am. On Saturdays, bars are open one hour later... so most places close at 3:00am and the late nighters are open 'till 5:00am. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom, I've included a list of some of the various late night spots in case you want to keep the party going all night.
