Back From Chicago!

Just got back from the Chicago Riot Fest, Second year going. Imma just say that the way it was set up this year was stupid, it took far too long to get to each stage, but other than that it was awesome.. except the rain, fuck the rain man
1Title Fight
The Last Thing You Forget

Enter the gates, takes a few minutes before you hit any stages annnnd I ended up losing my 3 day pass on the ground. 5 minutes in, sadly I fond someone elses and couldnt find them, so I kinda had no choice but to use theirs. Title Fight was alright
2Circa Survive
Blue Sky Noise

They were okay, Anthony Green is a weird mother fucker, kept on saying "come my little chickies" then rubbed mud on everyones faces
3Stiff Little Fingers
Nobody's Hero

these guys packed energy, they were certainly one of the best of the entire weekend.
Blast Tyrant

Clutch was definitely the highlight of the entire day. Neil Is such an awesome frontman
The Decline

they played Punk In Drublic in its entirety, only saw last two songs they played off of it, But they had twenty minutes left and I heard that familiar intro. I was never so excited to hear a song live, they started the Decline. It only lasted 15 minutes though when someone came on stage and said they were about to go over their time and had to leave.
Crack The Skye
7The Offspring

The played Smash.
8Rise Against
Siren Song Of The Counter Culture

Disappointing, They played the same set they did the day before in chicago, except they cut the songs from Revolutions out. Their Preformance wasnt too special either.
Die For The Government

First Band of the second day, also second time Ive seen them and they never disappoint, another highlight of the weekend
You Are Freaking Me Out
117 Seconds
The Crew
12Streetlight Manifesto
Everything Goes Numb

Best show of the weekend, left 7 seconds early to walk the 10+ minute walk to their stage. They continue to be my favorite live band.

Social Distortion

Went back through their discography playing their most recent to their oldest finishing up with all of the Blue Album, it was a pretty good show and a nice closer for the weekend
