Music fans love nothing more than a good debate, from top 10 lists to best album by an individual artist! These arguments are heated and passionate to say the least. Weezer has inspired countless disputes as fans battle over the artistic primacy of The Blue Album vs Pinkerton – advocates for each spool out their opinions on huge online threads worldwide. At Red Bull Riot Fest 2011, the debate will be settled once and for all, when the fans will pick up the gauntlet and vote to hear their favorite played on Oct.9 at the Congress Theater.
Voting will be sponsored by Chicago's WXRT, hosted at www.wxrt.com, fans will have until Sept. 26 at 10 AM CST to put their votes in. The winner will be announced Sept. 26 at 12 noon on WXRT 93.1 FM as well as online.
When Weezer appeared in Chicago last, they played one album on each night of a stand, but loads of fans were left in the cold when tickets sold out quickly. There are still tickets available for the Red Bull Riot Fest show while supplies last.
About Red Bull Riot Fest: It began in 2005, when Michael Petryshyn and Sean McKeough launched the first fest in multiple venues over a weekend in Chicago to celebrate college rock, indie, punk and metal from every era. They put special emphasis on reuniting influential punk and underground bands who hadn't shared the stage in years and Chicago's rich music history has always been a huge part of the Riot Fest roster. It quickly became one of the top gatherings for fans of every genre under the rock, indie and punk umbrella, with fans traveling from around the world to attend. Red Bull Riot Fest Chicago runs Oct. 5 through 9.
