Here is your formal welcome to festival season in Chicago. Pitchfork Fest just wrapped up, Lollapalooza is just two-weeks away, and after/side party announcements are beginning to pour in.

Twin Shadow (who also plays Lincoln Hall that week), Neon Indian, and Passion Pit DJs (who play a full-band set at the House of Blues) will be performing on August 2. Grimes, The Big Pink (who also play Subterranean), and THENEWN02 will be playing on August 3. Admission is free w/ RSVP (21+ only) and both events stretch until 2AM.

Lollapalooza 2011 (more by Grant MacAllister)
Especially if you're in Chicago, you may have started to notice "#LOLLA" ads, like this one (which references lyrics from Santigold's "L.E.S. Artistes")...
As CoS points out, across the web and CTA public transit system, there have been sightings of ads just like the above for Jack White, Sigur Ros(!), Justice, The Weeknd, Bloc Party, M83, Die Antwoord, Twin Shadow, The Shins, The Black Keys, The Big Pink, Wale, Washed Out, and Kimbra. Those are just some of the artists rumored to be playing the festival that takes place from August 3-5 in Grant Park.
What about reunited band of the moment At The Drive-In? Time will tell if we get them at Lolla, but meanwhile you can get your Omar Rodriguez-Lopez fix with Le Butcherettes, who visit Chicago for two shows in early-June. He's now a full-time member of that band.
