As if eight hours of music festival isn't enough, six hours of afterparties are standard-affair during Lollapalooza weekend. I was not much in an afterparty mood and, seeing as I had to shoot a wedding the following day, I took it a bit easy Friday night. On a whim, I stopped by the always enjoyable Hard Rock Hotel afterparty, notorious for it's endless flow of free booze, novelties & condoms in the bathrooms. On top of that, there is generally a great lineup of Lollapalooza-performing artists. I'm not sure who it was this night, as I did not stick around late enough to find out, but I heard Mom Jeans was a headliner (I knew there was a reason I cut out early).
After a quick re-charge of my body at a downtown Subway, I was persuaded to stop by Sonotheque on my way home. I had expected the place to be buried in people, a situation I can't stand at Sonotheque, but the place was tolerably crowded for the Fool's Gold party with Nick Catchdubs and A-Trak on the decks. I snapped some shots, saw some friends and that was that. Some photos below or click here to see them all.
