One of the best things about festival season coming to fruition in Chicago doubtlessly has to be the slew of after shows. Everyone from The National to The Morning Benders are hitting the not-so-mean streets of the city to play gigs outside of Grant Park but to see them, you'll have to pony up a pretty penny and troll Craig's List for folks trading their tickets for cold hard cash to a number of sold out after shows. What don't you have to pay for, however? Well, if you play your cards right, MGMT's forthcoming House of Blues gig.
The buzzy sensations headline on the 6th as part of the Dare 2 Dream benefit and, in a genius bit of marketing, if you download openers AWOLNATION's free ep off their site, you're automatically entered to win a pair of tickets to the sold out gig.
