Lolla ‘after shows’ feature Beasties, Deerhunter
Good news for Chicago music fans: Lollapalooza is loosening up a bit on restricting bands from playing local gigs outside the annual mega-fest. Beastie Boys play the Congress Theater and the Decemberists perform at Metro the Thursday before Lolla. TV on the Radio plays Double Door and Band of Horses is at House of Blues that Friday.
But the show I’m really psyched about: Deerhunter, No Age and Dan Deacon play their collaborative sets Sunday, Aug. 9. It looked like this show wasn’t going to happen in Chicago because of Lolla’s strict rules on when and where bands play around the festival. In fact, the restrictions became a contentious issue with local clubs. But the list of shows looks like a step in the right direction.
