Lollapalooza Pre-Party: Sammy Adams and Danny Masterson Take Over The Underground (Photo Gallery)

Thursday was the unofficial start of Lollapalooza and the Underground was filled like a Saturday night. Bottles of Dom Pérignon were popping, Sammy Adams and Danny Masterson (AKA DJ Mom Jeans) kept the crowd moving, and it was easy to forget it was only Thursday night.

Danny Masterson is a regular in the Chicago nightlife scene, and it was great to see him play an early role in this year’s Lolla scene. Last year he performed at the Hard Rock Hotel after Salt-n-Pepa and Saturday night he will keep the the party alive for Ay Chiwowa’s late night crowd.

Friday night includes Nelly and Samantha Ronson and Saturday night US Weekly sets up shop for their annual after party.  If you want a photo with Aaron Paul – a Lollapalooza regular – you better be here. 

Side note: Sammy Adams is in the old school Nike Air sweatshirt (pictured with Billy Dec in the brown fedora), Danny Masterson is wearing the tan fedora (pictured with Arturo Gomez in gray blazer), and DJ Rock City has the sweet mohawk.
