just a heads up for anyone that hasn't been or doesn't know chicago - those bottom lounge shows are only 2 blocks away from the festival (they also have a great beer selection if that's your thing).
I'll be at the Trash Talk/White Lung show on Saturday and will also be trying for the Savages Lincoln Hall show with Sound Opinions on Thursday as that Friday show with Savages has 4 bands/DJ's and will go until 2 AM and I'm old (how I can stay up until 3/4 AM at Bonnaroo and not in the city I live in? not sure).
Empty Bottle is also pretty close - just over 2 miles - but the Lincoln Hall is a little bit more of a trek. Cabs are probably your best bet for Empty Bottle (or walking) and Lincoln Hall is about 30-40 minutes via 2 trains.
As tempting as it would be to see Savages and/or Waxahatchee and/or Autre Ne Veut in an actual club as opposed to 95 degree humid-as-balls heat, I'm not really missing anyone I'm dying to see during any of their set times so I'll probably skip their after shows to save some money. Likely going to get a Parquet Courts ticket for Sunday night, though.

The after shows have a limited amount at the door. Probably cheaper, too. I just didn't wanna get shut out of both of the Savages shows. That's probably my biggest conflict and I would rather see them at the Lincoln Hall anyways.
