Not a fan of festivals? Won’t be around for the full Lollapalooza fest? Do you really only like MGMT and no other band in the world?
Organizers at the Chicago three-day fest have announced that many of its performing acts — including headliner Phoenix — are playing after-shows around the Windy City once the lights go out in Grant Park.
New Pornographers, Devo, MGMT, Edward Sharpe, The National, The Black Keys and more have signed on to play at smaller venues like the Metro, Schubas, House of Blues and the Congress Theater.
Tickets for all days, Aug. 5-8, go on sale this Friday (June 25) at 10 a.m. CST.
Sorry, kids, no Lady Gaga on the list, though imagine the pop star taking the stage at the Double Door and have yourself a headache.
