Riot Fest -- Chicago, IL -- September 13th-15th, 2013

Riot Fest was a blast. The rain all day Sunday put a damper on things, but it was still great. I would totally do it again, except I think my body was trying to tell me I'm too old for this shit (evidenced by the cold I brought home with me)

Bands I saw in full or at least partially:

Andrew WK
Bad Religion
GWAR
Joan Jett and The Blackhearts
Danzig
X
Dinosaur Jr.
Pennywise
Guided By Voices
The Lawrence Arms
Rancid
Taking Back Sunday
Blink-182
Chuck Ragan
Peter Hook and The Light
Mission of Burma
Against Me!
Bob Mould
Rocket From the Crypt
Off With Their Heads
Brand New
AFI
Pixies

I wanted to see The Replacements, but I was so sore and miserable from standing in the rain all day that I just wanted to go back to the hotel. I think my favorites were The Lawrence Arms and Brand New, but Rancid was awesome too, and Bob Mould's set was great even though that was when the rain was at its heaviest.
