Riot Festers Please Beware of Slayer Fans

Okay so the big Riot Fest & Carnival weekend is here. I have a problem with the short set times and really no after-shows of interest but you can’t deny the line up. This year’s line up easily blows away Lollapalooza. Please do your best to catch Paul Weller, Buzzcocks, The Cure, Cheap Trick, The Orwells, My Gold Mask, Naked Raygun, Patti Smith…okay it is a really good line up.

Many blogs are helping you prepare by letting you know to dress comfortably, wear comfortable shoes,  layers, drink lots of water, stranger danger, have a meeting place, but I have a warning that may not occur to you if you’re an old punker like me.

After shows got a bit better with the addition of Naked Raygun.

Get there safely and enjoy the gorgeous park

Rock out and have fun!

It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
