It’s Lolla! Here’s Where to Go After.

Rock out in Grant Park all day then keep the party going with Lolla after shows!

Are you one of the 100,000 people descending on Grant Park this weekend to hit Lollapalooza? If so, you know you’re in for some great music from the likes of Toro y Moi, Paul McCartney, Tame Impala, Hot Chip, Florence and the Machine, Alabama Shakes, Django Django and about 125 more acts. But when the last guitar chord is struck or the last DJ knob is twiddled each night, you won’t necessarily be ready to go home. Thank goodness for the after shows.

Each night, bands playing during the day will hit stages all over the city from Metro and Lincoln Hall to Empty Bottle and Concord Music Hall. Some shows happen Wednesday and Thursday night before the weekend and others sold out quickly. But you’re crafty and can always figure a way to get in. Here are just a few of our picks and Do312 has a full list here.
