Though there are no arena-sized headliners playing small clubs as in past years with Them Crooked Vultures and Phoenix, the after-parties announced Tuesday include some great options for those who can’t get enough music on Lollapalooza weekend or want to avoid the festival entirely.
Among the highlights: Titus Andronicus will bring its guitar-army roar to Reggies on Aug. 6, Death from Above 1979 will strafe Metro on Aug. 4, Swedish singer Lykke Li will headline House of Blues on Aug. 5, and British heavies the Arctic Monkeys will be joined by Chicago’s excellent Disappears at House of Blues on Aug. 6. Also highly recommended are Local Natives, who top the bill at Lincoln Hall on Aug. 5, rising British stars the Vaccines at Schubas on Aug. 5, and pop-rock trio Dom at Subterranean on Aug. 6.
Conspicuous by its absence is a Metro show on Aug. 6 -- let the rumors begin about what band may yet be booked in that prime slot during the busiest music weekend of the summer. Given Dave Grohl's history with Metro as a member of Nirvana, Queens of the Stone Age and now the Foo Fighters, who headline Lollapalooza Aug. 7, he is certain to be at the center of the after-show gossip in coming weeks.
