Lollapalooza unveils 2010 Aftershows


    You know all that griping you did about the schedule conflicts at this year’s Lollapalooza? Well, you knew this day was coming, and hopefully it will solve some of your Lolla dilemmas. Lollapalooza announced its lauded Aftershow lineup this morning and it features the literal bulk of the 2010 Lollapalooza lineup, including headliner Phoenix and upper echelon bands like New Pornographers, MGMT, The National, Devo, and The Black Keys. Also getting some more time with fans are Parry Farell, Rusko, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, The Walkmen, Gogol Bordello, and Cut Copy.

    Upon cursory inspection, some conflicts that have been discussed seemed resolved here:

    The National vs. Getting A Good Spot For Arcade Fire, Edward Shapre vs. Spoon, The Black Keys vs. Hot Chip vs. Jamie Lidell, and long-time Green Day fans can now rock out guilt free for 2 hours and 15 minutes and catch Phoenix at the HoB Sunday.

    Of course, now new conflicts arise, namely: all Afershows on Saturday, August 7th. But, if this list doesn’t take some of the weight of your chest, I don’t know what will. Where will you be when the lights go out at Millennium Park?


    Tickets for all of the shows go on sale starting Friday, June 25th at 10:00 AM CST at the respective venues. Tickets for the festival itself remain on sale here.

    Update: The Precision Guiding Musicians featuring Hot Chip et al. has been cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.
