Lollapalooza is just around the corner. We at PPM are extremely hyped up for all the weekend events and shows set to be held at Grant Park at this annual, landmark event held every year in Chicago. Bringing musicians and bands across the globe to play in the city we call home, Lollapalooza is a destination for music lovers everywhere.  However, some of us, whatever the reason may be, will not be attending. Be it work, family, or other activities, it still does not mean you cannot participate in Lollapalooza in some way.

So what do we mean by that? Well, the after parties. That’s right, many of the bands at this year’s Lollapalooza will also be performing after parties throughout the city before and after the official Lollapalooza schedule. Ranging from the House of Blues in River North, to the Vic Theater in Lakeview, there is something for everyone, no matter your location or schedule. Ok, ok. Enough about all that, let’s get to the schedule!
