The Red Bull Riot Fest has announced shows in both Philadelphia and Chicago for this fall. One is a day-long event; the other is spread over four days! Pick your poison, pleasure or pain!
Red Bull Riot Fest East will hit the City of Brotherly Love (my home base and nearest major city growing up, since I lived four miles from the bridge to South Philly, which is the Walt Whitman Bridge, geography-heads!) on September 24th. The lineup includes The Descendents, Dead Milkmen and X, who will be playing the entire Los Angeles album. There is also a reunion set from local punks Plow United, as well as Hot Water Music, Naked Raygun, Suicide Machines, Samiam, Weston, The Menzingers, Shot Baker, Larry and His Flask, The Holy Mess and many more to be announced!
The Windy City also gets their own edition of the Fest, as Red Bull Riot Fest will commandeer Chicago from October 5th through the 9th, featuring Weezer, Social Distortion, The Descendents, X, Youth of Today, Suicide Machines, All, Helmet, D Generation, Down by Law and others.
Which Red Bull Riot Fest are you planning to attend? Anyone out there planning to attend both?
