Andrew WK DJs at Beauty Bar Riot Fest weekend, and here he poses with some Chicagoist writers. Used with permission.

As if the daytime festivities in Humboldt Park for Riot Fest weren't going to be enough, festival organizers just announced a slew of aftershows through the weekend of Sept. 12-14. All the shows look pretty tasty, but Saturday looks white hot as Cobra Lounge totally scored getting Television; the Blue Meanies take to Bottom Lounge's stage; and Beauty Bar will surely be shaking with a DJ set from Andrew WK. Scroll through the line-ups below, let us know which are your faves, and click through to snag tickets.

Can't get into the show you want to see? No worries! Because Friday through Sunday Emporium Arcade Bar has been named the "Official Riot Fest Post Hang."
