Check Out Official Lollapalooza After Shows 2017
Festival season is upon us, and maybe you weren’t able to get a festival pass but fear not there are alternatives. Lollapalooza, an annual musical festival in Chicago’s Grant Park, is right around the corner, and it’s understandable if you can’t fork over a couple hundred of dollars for the four day music event (ticket plus day spending). Check out a more wallet friendly option with Lollapalooza After Shows.
These after shows are a great option for those who want to keep the music going and for those who couldn’t quite snag their fest pass. The official Lollapalooza After Shows include more than 55 performances featuring over 110 artists throughout several Chicago music venues. Although dubbed “after shows” these concerts kick off August 1 and go through August 6.
Among the legendary house rooms is Smart Bar, home to some of the best underground dance music ranging from techno and deep house to electro and house music. Smart Bar has hosted some of the hottest local DJs and those from around the world including Honey Dijon and Bonobo while welcoming widely acclaimed resident DJs like Black Madonna, Derrick Carter and Michael Serafini.
Aside from inviting global artists, it also shares musical history within the house music community. Godfather of house Frankie Knuckles was the first DJ booked to play at Smart Bar and played the venue’s opening weekend. He was also the only DJ to ever play in the venue’s 30 year (and counting) existence.
Smart Bar will open its doors to Justin Martin, co-founder of the Dirtybird crew, for his Lollapalooza After Show on Friday, August 4. Justin Martin recently visited Chicago for Mamby Beach, and looks like the Chicago winds are sweeping him back for another round.
Be sure to check out a show or two at Smart Bar’s sister venue The Metro located just above the underground music venue. Jon Bellion, Spoon and The Head and The Heart are some of this year’s artists lined up to takeover the historic music space.
