Around Town with Gabe Mendoza & DL Hopkins (Lolla Weekend Edition)

Backstreet’s back alright. The ’90s boy band, Backstreet Boys, serenades fans at Northerly Island. Of course this isn’t the only concert in town. The granddaddy of summer music fests—Lollapalooza—invades Grant Park. Lolla’s sold out. But Vocalo’s senior hip hop correspondent Gabe Mendoza and his Around Town co-host D.L. Hopkins offers the five Ws on a few official after-shows. We’ll name drop one: Kendrick Lamar, Bauer and BJ the Chicago Kid at the Aragon. Press play to hear about more after-parties, and for information on an annual Belizean fete, a magical playland in Elgin (No, not the casino) and where to meet Da’ Bears. Thank you for listening.
