Obviously hearing some of the criticism from Chicago club land about freezing out the venues that present music here 365 days a year, Lollapalooza's promoters have expanded the number of sanctioned after-shows this year, with a sizable list following the jump.
Still, the controversy remains: Many local club owners, artist managers and fans say Lollapalooza's radius clauses are a major threat to the health of the local music scene for much of the year, ranking second only to the City Council's proposed promoter's ordinance as a threat for stopping the music.
Does one full-to-overflowing weekend make up for a serious hit on the clubs through the rest of the summer? What's your opinion?
