The best Lollapalooza 2017 aftershows

Spoon + CRX


Indie rock veterans Spoon are one of the most consistent bands in the business, churning out regular doses of power-pop that serve as a reminder of their staying power. The Texas group's latest, Hot Thoughts, once again benefits from the slightly psychedelic touch of producer Dave Fridmann, who lends a punchier, funkier vibe to the record's taut songs. Before marking their return to Lollapalooza, Spoon warms up at Metro with support from the Strokes' instrumentalist Nicholas Valensi's side project CRX.

Sylvan Esso + Flock of Dimes

There are few bands more unabashedly joyous than Sylvan Esso, the unlikely duo of singer Amelia Meath (formerly of Mountain Man) and producer Nick Sanborn. Together, the pair makes slick electro-pop that balances emotionally ressonant lyricism with dancable beats—good luck standing still during this show. Wye Oak frontwoman Jenn Wasner's side project Flock of Dimes opens this Lollapalooza aftershow.

Kaytranada + Kweku Collins + Lous Phelps

A former bedroom producer who made a name for himself with an unauthorized remix of Janet Jackson's "If" that he posted to Soundcloud, Louis Kevin Celestin (better known as Kaytranada) is a 24-year-old EDM wunderkind with clout to spare. If you dug the production on Chance the Rapper's "All Night," you'll love Kaytra's debut, 99.9%, which is scattered with high-profile guests like Vic Mensa, Anderson .Paak and Little Dragon, all backed by some of the most complex rhythms you're likely to hear in a club. Local rapper Kweku Collins and Montreal hip-hop artist Lous Phelps open the show.

The lineup has changed, but Blink-182 2.0 is—for better or for worse—the same snotty-nosed punks you grew up with. With former lead singer Tom DeLonge off chasing aliens, Alkaline Trio singer Matt Skiba takes over on vocals—a noticable departure from the nasal drawl the band once wore proudly on its sleeve, but you'll barely notice as you're shouting along to "All the Small Things." At this special Lollapalooza aftershow, LA electro-pop artist Elohim supports.

Whitney + Kevin Devine

Formed by roommates Max Kakacek and Julian Ehrlich (former members of the Smith Westerns and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, respectively), Whitney puts a lovelorn, soulful spin on folk rock that is firmly indebted to the Band and Crosby, Stills and Nash. Ahead of the band's Lollapalooza debut, Whitney headlines this Thalia Hall aftershow, joined by indie rock singer-songwriter Kevin Devine.

Mac DeMarco + Middle Kids


Mac DeMarco's tongue is no stranger to his cheek. Like Jonathan Richman, the Canuck crooner's jangly pop muddies the line between campy and candor with ease. His latest LP, This Old Dog, documents the singer's move to LA, injecting a few psychedelic flourishes into the collection of laid-back ballads. Australian rock trio Middle Kids support.
