Lollapalooza afterparties you can still get into 

Get 'em while they're hot


If the 140 acts at Lollapalooza proper are a glutton's epic all-you-can-eat buffet, the festival's impressive schedule of officially sanctioned afterparties—which is monopolizing most of the good venues in the city for the entire weekend—is its decadent dessert bar. Of course many fans prefer to skip straight to the sweets course, and because it's so tempting to catch some of the festival's brighter stars in smaller rooms—and not expend the considerable physical and mental effort of actually going to Lollapalooza—most of those shows have sold out already. At press time, though, tickets were still available for the official (and unofficial) after­parties listed below. —MR
