You're about to spend three days in the hot, sticky sunshine, captivated by bands you've been pining for on your iPod all year. With all that dedication, you deserve to be rewarded. Sailor Jerry Rum and FILTER Magazine think so, too. They're throwing a post-fest bash at the Hard Rock Hotel that we won't miss, and that's real talk. Especially since we're hearing rumors about a Backyard Black Tea cocktail flowin' at this party like honey. With the chance to see The Cults, Maps & Atlases (yay, Chicago bands!), Foster The People (those cute boys pictured above), and Phantogram, this is one RSVP that needs to get passed around your A-list friends, asap. Hard Rock Hotel, 230 North Michigan Avenue (north of Lake Street); 312-345-1000.
