Maps & Atlases drove 35 hours straight from California to Chicago in order to make it back home in time for last night’s Filter’s Lollapalooza After Party at the Fender Ballroom at the Hard Rock Hotel.
“It’s good to be home in Chicago even though none of us have actually been to our homes yet,” said singer Dave Davison. “We came straight here.”

The band will also be playing Lollapalooza’s Google + stage at 2:15 p.m. on Saturday, performing cuts from full-length debut Perch Patchwork.
“A lot of times, people describe us as sort of technical pop music or something,” said Davison. “Maybe experimental pop music because we do try to use the pop structure but we do try to experiment with things and make the song interesting. I think we have a big focus on songs and song structure and we go a little further out with that in using technicality in music. I guess it’s as simple as you want to make it.”
Simply put, they’re a band worth catching on Saturday’s Lolla schedule.
