Lollapalooza is all about the weekend as a whole, not just Grant Park part. Sure, 138 artists and groups on 7 stages will take over Grant Park August 2nd-4th, providing over 30 hours of music to over 300,000 people, but the fun doesn’t stop there. All weekend (starting Thursday August 1st), we have events picked out for you to make the best out of the experience. Why not spend Lolla like the VIP you see in the mirror?
After an exclusive advanced screening of Focus Feature’s “The World’s End,” Filter Magazine hosts a party to start a glorious and sure to be exhausting weekend at Logan Square Auditorium. Free drinks plus live sets by Smith Westerns and MNDR, the event starts at 9PM and is strictly 21+. Sponsored by PBR, do312, Fender, UBER, and more, be sure to give us a shout if you see us hanging out!
When you have someone that flew in from Hawaii just to see a band standing to your left, and someone visiting from San Francisco there for the same reason to your right, you know you’re in for something special. That was the case Saturday at the sold out Lincoln Hall, where the Temper Trap was in town for the second straight night.
Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Toby Dundas, Lorenzo Sillitto and Joseph Greer, better know as The Temper Trap, arrive in Chicago’s Lincoln Hall this Saturday with a full head of steam. Fresh off of a handful of performances at SXSW, the band is currently on its US tour, which already features back to back sold out nights in Los Angeles earlier this week, and is set to perform 2 sold-out nights in Chicago this weekend and 3 sold-out nights in New York City next week. Make sure to check out “Need Your Love” from the bands upcoming album, streaming below.
