It’s Chicago’s Riot Fest with photos of Fall Out Boy, Saves the Day, Rancid, and Danzig performing live and nude! (One of those adjectives is lying.)
Back in June, the Dig made summer plans for must-see shows, including some worth the extra travel. The Midwest called me home for Riot Fest last week in Chicago. A 3 day event with seemingly every band you’d ever want to see on one bill; in addition to a few you never thought would likely play another live show. For 3 days I walked around with a throbbing musical erection–Riot Fest delivered all the punk rock I could ever hope for, keeping me über excited for 36 hours minimum.
In the lush links below you’ll find a rundown of each day with a wealth of photos of your favorite bands … unless I missed them … in which case you’re shit out of luck and I apologize.
