With all the recent news about Lollapalooza, we're sure you're itching for the fest to get here already. To tide you over, Lakeview spring-break bar Uncle Fatty's Rum Resort is hosting Fattypalooza on Friday night beginning at 8 p.m.. The free battle of the bands will include four local bands (Mathien, Headwall, Turning Down Today and one surprise act) playing 45-minute sets of covers. The winner (voted on by you, and announced at the end of the party) will get $1,000 and a future gig at the bar.
The event is also a good excuse to finally buy those Lolla tickets, because all those with proof of purchase will get free domestic beer bottles and well drinks from 8-10 p.m. There will also be $2 "Toxic Fruit Shots" and $4 bottles of Modelo, Red Stripe, Pacifico, Corona and Bud Light Lime for all.
