Summer Festival Season is in full swing all over Chicago and two of the biggest fests, the annual Pitchfork & Lollapalooza music gatherings, are just around the corner. Say what you will about the fests (actually, don't), but we think it's great that they allow for us to have Aftershows at our venue. We get to welcome acts that have become popular enough to have outgrown our fair room, and whether you want to stand out in the heat and/or rain, you can still come rock the eff out with totally killer bands in an intimate space. WIN-WIN! This year we've got two more Aftershows to announce, one for Pitchfork and one for Lollapalooza, and we're damn excited for both of em! The Friday of PITCHFORK (7/19) we're hosting the first of three Panache Booking Aftershows, and this one will feature legendary punk band THE ZEROS! Making their first appearance ever on our stage, THE ZEROS will be supported by local psych/garage/rock heroes OUTER MINDS and Minneapolis rockers THE BLIND SHAKE. Tickets are $15 and you can get em NOW - grab em here! For Lollapalooza, we've teamed up with C3 & the Red Bull Sound Select Series to bring UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA back to our stage for their first time since 2011. UMO, as they're lovingly known, released their excellent sophomore album, appropriately titled II, on Jagjaguwar Records at the beginning of the year and tonight they'll be joined by two fantastic, steadily-rising Chicago bands BARE MUTANTS and NETHERFRIENDS. Tickets are on sale NOW and they're going fast - grab some here before they're gone! EB out.
