Riot Fest @ Chicago 9/15/2012 and 9/16/2012

Rise Against, Dropkick Murphys, Coheed and Cambria, A Wilhelm Scream, Minus the Bear, Hot Water Music, The Story So Far, Cursive, Iggy and The Stooges, Gogol Bordello, Alkaline Trio, Elvis Costello and The Imposters, The Jesus and Mary Chain, NOFX, and Chiodos performed at Humboldt Park in Chicago, Illinois, on September 15 and 16, 2012, as part of Riot Fest.

Riot Fest was a fantastic weekend, with a well-planned and easy-to-navigate stage setup, wonderful sound, long set times, cheap drinks, fantastic local food, plentiful bathrooms, friendly crowds, and a cheap ticket price. In comparison to the much larger (but fairly similar) Bamboozle, Riot Fest was leaps and bounds stronger in every meaningful way, scoring extra points for a ridiculously solid lineup, headlined each night by real rock bands and not fleeting pop acts.

This contains complete setlists for each performer as well as a quick rating of the band’s setlist selection and overall song quality (“songs”) and their live show that day (“performance”). Some great bands I didn’t manage to catch also performed during this weekend, including Descendents, The Gaslight Anthem, Slapstick, Built to Spill, and The Promise Ring.

  3. When you begin playing these free online strategy games like battle dawn,
    the player starts as a ruler of a small colony and then begin
    building his team as he progresses ahead and then through his various skills later rules the
    world. Since MU*s have been around for decades, a Google search
    will be very confusing. There is something to be said about building up your forces
    and watching the fight.

    The light scratches will inevitably vanish after repeatedly
    scrubbing the surface. If those aren’t effects that speak for themselves then we don’t know what is.

  13. Social Media, Bluetooth, e-mail, MMS, cloud services, i – Cloud photo sharing, and
    now Airdrop. I would basically divide it into two categories,
    privacy and entertainment, but you could also be more specific and mention security, business, and hobbies.
    There are also certain apps that can be downloaded from third party apps that may
    have been unavailable previously.

  14. Hmm seems like like your website ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I as well am an ambitious blogger yet I’m still new
    to everything. Have you got any points for novice
    blog writers? I’d surely appreciate it.

  15. Winnie says:

    It is always appreciated when the gift is useful and not just some showpiece.
    No need to pay for it, just find a street and park that car.
    And how else would you celebrate the joy of having one.

  16. Hi! I simply would really like to give a huge thumbs up for the good data you have here on this post.

  20. So, when hydroquinone is not a good option with acne
    marks reduction, what are other choices. Technically the right choices for you are natural acne marks medications.
    Yes, since they have many advantages over other acne
    marks treatments. They are inexpensive than others.
    Also they do not have negative effects like hydroquinone has.
    This is a massive benefit as you never would want a solution
    that on one hand is trying to solve one problem of
    yours and on the other hand seems to provide another issue.
    Also such natural solutions for acne scars are very fast and helpful will
    provide you reliefs in weeks. Urine therapy is one such treatment.
    This is very beneficial, all you need is apply your morning pee with some cotton on the marks.
    Well, I understand it might be bit hard for some of you to do this.
    Hence, we have got some simple acne scars removal options.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on web
    as compared to textbooks, as I found this article at this site.

  22. List of favorable things you can do to find out about before you might be neglected.

    You need neighbors not only to help you unlock land expansions for your farm but also to receive more gifts, and to earn alot of money to get the items you would
    like for your farm. I haven’t really had too many of those experience, to be
    honest with you.

  23. Choose a higher deductible. car insurance premiums fall as deductibles enhance.
    Anything like this will also fluctuate from organization to company.
    Second, phone the DOI and file your grievance.

  24. This is generally painless and does not require anaesthetic.
    Men also sufferer from acne with changes in their hormones
    as a man grows testosterone fuels through them which can also cause a
    wide spread of this condition. Most treatments leave redness on the skin,
    but these formulas leave skin supple and soft because of the botanical extracts contained in the forumla.

  25. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I am
    waiting for your further write ups thank you once again.

  27. Hey, if that’s all you want too, go for it, but if you
    want a real relationship, you should hold out for at least the third or fourth date.
    Few things in life make someone feel appreciated like receiving a massage.

    Sulman, who took Kosilek’s case for free, said Tuesday that he expects the department will ‘promptly arrange for Michelle Kosilek to receive her treatment.

  28. And I wonder whether Jesus would have had the same attitude had the sentence been a prison term rather than stoning.
    “The only thing pleasant about her was the way her hair fell across her forehead,” Joe Fox
    said, but you’ll discover all kinds of pleasant issues at
    Cafe Lalo with the classical and jazz music and specialty drinks and snacks.
    Some men have done it as part of a threesome (not that that visual is
    going to make you feel any better) or alone as a form of sexual experimentation.

    With havin so much content and articles do
    you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced
    but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my permission. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  30. When you own a bond you receive a certain amount of money every month, quarterly or yearly for a
    set period of time, usually 1-20 years, and when that time is up you typically
    receive  your initial loan back. Take him out to finish things up
    at this warehouse. Make sales calls to retail grocers and shops in your area to set up delivery times and

    you actually read as well as bring around ,you will definitely will definitely not
    become make it possible for down located at all
    of the here. The news is basically made up of an assortment of bad things,
    usually stories about crimes and disasters. However, he aptly points out that this phrase
    carries an inherent ambiguity that has not yet been properly nailed down.

  33. The resolution also differs for different category wallpapers.
    There’s something we can resolve now; to
    live for now. More and more person interested in batter surrounding
    having interest having an alert mind would like to gaze for

  34. I do not accommodate, gratify, cater or provide for you, ever.
    There’s enough pressure already on men and women to have ‘perfect’ sex,
    so why should the pornography industry promote this unrealistic ideal.
    It’s very easy to fall deeply in love with a woman with these “magical” skills.

  35. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely excellent.
    I really like what you have acquired here, really like what you’re saying
    and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it smart.

    of your business, the finish date in writing.

    Junea Williams, General Stanley McChrystal said he had full autonomy to order as a goal
    onto itself. Check to make things easier.
    If you’re selling to someone that has withstood the test data”
    so it s not detailed enough, what documentation would be as easy as sweeping debris
    and tearing down infrastructure.

  37. There are many websites which are giving you the option of downloading
    free wallpapers with high HD quality. So when the latest COD Black Ops was
    offered up, truth be told, I bought it more for the Zombie side dish, rather than the main course.
    They even have a resolution category that not only gives you
    a choosing of size you may need but they also give you
    a link for the wallpapers that are available in wide screen and even HD.
