Lindsay Lohan Stops in to Mark Ronson's Lollapalooza After Party

August 3, 2008 10:00 AM ET

Perennial gossip item Lindsay Lohan turned up at the Hard Rock Hotel's "Rock the Vote Lounge" to cheer on her squeeze, DJ Samantha Ronson, Saturday night after Lollapalooza. Lohan kept a low profile but had the room abuzz with her presence, as Ronson and her brother Mark, producer of Amy Winehouse's Back to Black and a Lollapalooza performer on Sunday night, took turns spinning '70s hip-hop and '80s synth pop for the wall-to-wall crowd at the Hard Rock Hotel. In addition to Lohan, the afterparty attracted a bevy of name DJs, including Girl Talk and DJ Momjeans (Danny Masterson), who took in Spank Rock's quick'n'raunchy set (a microcosm of the neo-electro MC's earlier performance at Lolla's Citi stage — complete with sultry sidekick MC Amanda Blank). Partygoers also had the option of indulging in the free salon makeup and hairstyling sessions, as well as free tattoos, offered by Chicago's venerable Jade Dragon Tattoo Parlor.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
