Lollapalooza Aftershows @ Empty Bottle + Giveaway

As you may already know, we announced our Official Lollapalooza Aftershows at the beginning of June and we’ve got some real burners coming to our home that first weekend in August. Each show will all be starting at around 10pm as to not interfere with any fest-attendees travel plans from Grant Park to our humble abode. All three nights have already sold out, but we've got your chance to snag some tickets in this here post... On Thursday, August 1st we welcome Virginia-based dream-pop experts WILD NOTHING, who will be joined by Chicago/Milwaukee soft-rockers CIRCLES and Chicago-based powergazers PINK FROST. Wild Nothing - “A Dancing Shell” We’re welcoming back Brooklyn indie-rock band DIIV on Saturday, August 3rd – the band opened for WILD NOTHING in late 2012 and this will be their first headlining gig at the Bottle. Opening the show are a few local favorites: poppy rock mutants RADAR EYES and minimal synth-babe MATCHESS. DIIV - “Doused” To close out the weekend, we’re getting wet and wild with California alt-punks WAVVES, a band that last played the Bottle as an Official Lolla Aftershow in 2011. This time around they’re joined by Chicago-based space-rockers E.T. HABIT Milwaukee power-rockers CALL ME LIGHTNING. Wavves - “Demon To Lean On”
Like we said, tickets to each show are sold out, but we're gonna be giving away a pair of tickets to each show through this here blog, so now's when you find out how you can score tickets of your own... Now that we're half-way through the year, people are gonna start making their Best Records of the Year (So Far) lists - normally we'd mock such a thing and make a snarky Facebook post, and that still might happen in the coming weeks, BUT we're also quite curious about what our friends are listening to. In the comments section, tell us what your favorite record of the year is (so far), along with which show you're trying to see, by noon on Monday, June 24th and you'll be entered to win a pair of tickets. GOOD LUCK!

    My most favorite album of the year so far would have to be “Bloodsports” by Suede. I’d like to see Wild Nothing !

  2. Billy

    Probably the Kurt Vile record at this point. I would say “mbv” but those songs are old i’m sure.

    That DIIV show sounds cool. Thanks.

  3. Lorne

    favorite record so far is that GD Vampire Weekend album, which I would have probably scoffed at the thought of 6 months ago. It just won’t get out of my head, and I don’t think I want it to. DIIV please!

  4. Michael Dubensky

    I discovered the life’s work of Sigur Ros on Spotify after buying one of their CDs. I want to see them in concert at the Auditorium Theater because of their unique sound.

    1. Empty Bottle

      Michael – just to clarify: we are only offering up tickets to our three Lollapalooza Aftershows, listed above in the post. Are there any of THOSE shows you’d like to be entered to win? If not, that’s cool.

  5. Michael Dubensky

    I’ve been to eight shows at Empty Bottle in the last few weeks. I am game for any night.

  6. Adam

    Favorite album thus far = Kurt Vile’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze…good vibes & spirits on there…
    Trying to check out Wavves/E.T. Habit (cuz I missed them at the Ariel Pink show)

  7. Carmen

    My favorite release so far is definitely Empty Estate! But for full-length album I would have to say Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s II. That being said, I would luuuvv to see Wild Nothing!!

  8. Joe Annoreno

    My favorite album so far in 2013 is Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience. I would love to go see DIIV. Thanks!

  9. Brandon

    The Knife’s amazing album ‘Shaking the Habitual’ is definitely my #1 pick for the year. I’d love to see Wavves!
