Lollapalooza announces 2011 aftershows

on June 21, 2011, 5:55pm

Some people tend to complain about the noise ordinances at Chicago’s Grant Park, which essentially shuts down Lollapalooza each night at 10 p.m. However, what they’re forgetting is that while the festival closes its doors prior to midnight (unlike Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, etc.), the party doesn’t stop there. Instead, the focus shifts to the city’s countless venues, scattered all across the map. This includes the infamous Metro, Schubas Tavern, Reggie’s Rock Club, Lincoln Hall, Double Door, and the list goes on. It takes some careful planning, but that’s okay… especially when you have a month and some change to figure your schedule out. This morning, you can now officially start your Lollapalooza late-night planning, thanks to the newly announced shows.

You can peep the whole list of shows below, but here are some “must sees” in our book: Death From Above 1979 at the Metro on Thursday, The Vaccines/Tennis at Schubas on Friday, and Titus Andronicus/Fences hitting up Reggie’s on Saturday. If you’re willing to brave the House of Blues, you can catch more of Lykke Li (who wouldn’t?) and the Arctic Monkeys, performing their new brilliant LP. It should be noted that there are no planned performances at the Vic Theatre, where Soundgarden and Pearl Jam both performed pre-weekend sets in previous years. Could there be something in the works? Maybe a Foo Fighters gig? Speculation, sure, but you never know. We’ll have to play the waiting game.

In the meantime, here are your shows and check out Do312.com for ticket information!

They need to add some Sunday aftershows

Unlike Bonnaroo, the party doesn’t stop there? <—clearly never been to Bonnaroo.

Well, if you read the actual sentence you’d see I was referring to the fact that the festival closes its doors before midnight…unlike Bonnaroo. Thanks Zack.

I was really hoping for a Cudi aftershow, maybe the Metro.  Kinda bummed about that.  I think Two Door Cinema @ LH is a must-see too.  Anyone who’s been to that venue knows it doesnt get much more intimate.  Also, since it was built in 09′, like the HOB, the acoustics are amazing since its built for sound, rather than theatre. I was suggest any aftershow there.  I personally like Empty Bottle too.  Metro and Double Door are great sometimes, but there’s always the chance you get stuck on ths sides or under the balcony where the sound diminishes or there’s exit signs right about your head if you dont get there early enough and don’t want to be a dick and push people out of the way. Obviously that wouldnt be a problem at DFA 1979  Just some thoughts…..Also, there’s no Sunday aftershows? Makes me think something is still in the works.  Saw Phoenix at the HOB Sunday night last year, and I couldn’t have imagined a better end to the weekend.
