Riot Fest 2014

I went to this thing the past 2 years in Chicago and it's the best thing going.
such a fun, relaxed festival. Getting to see the Replacements was a fucking dream come true.

this new lineup is fucking rad.
its better than fucking boner-oo and coachsmellya and lollipoploozer all combined.

check it.



Chicago Lineup | Riot Fest

The Cure Janes Addiction and Weezer it's like I'm in college again and everything's awesome.
Flaming lips? sure why not.
The National? All the kids love these guys.
Wu Tang? wow.
Tegan and sara, metric yup. CHEAP TRICK?! HOORAY!!
Patti Smith?! i'll take that.
what's this?

WHAT?!

fucking WELLER?!

ka-BLAMMO!!!

I'll read the rest tomorrow. so help me god if they mix it up with the skull punishing metal of someone like slayer or mastodon, the modern indie stylings of someone like of mice and men or kurt vile, and bring back some other old classic bastards like social distortion or fucking stiff little fingers or the buzzcocks, and mix in some shittty 90's emo like dashboard confessional or something, this might get even better. maybe some dirty bluesy 60's sounding nonsense like black joe lewis, and finally some great grunge or post grunge bs - like mud honey or failure. plus, you just know they're gonna have some of that popular modern punk like dropkick murphys or the dropkick murphys. they'll probably even make the boss tones toot their tooters once again. they have shit like that every year. it's fun to watch bands play in the sunshine with a hot dog and a beer.

it's too bad they have shit like the flaming lips and wu tang on this festival, because it has a pretty nice bunch of bands on it.

maybe i read that wrong, but if you're actually talking shit about SLF while expressing excitement for cheap trick, you're a fucking idiot.

It's a weird paragraph...it's hypothetical about events that actually occurred.

This lineup is about as good as always, only they sold out and got a bunch of indie bands so now the internet finally notices the festival exists.

I'd gladly go if I were still living there in four months, but I won't be.

Simmer down, dude. SLF are great. So is Cheap Trick, and I'm obviously an fucking idiot for thinking I could have a little fun around here.

The lineup looks better every time I look through it. Really looking forward to this. Is that clear enough?
