Three weeks & counting to RiotFest 2009! Another trip to Chicago to see even more bands than there was in 2006 & perhaps even the past two years! There's gonna be Naked Raygun, 88 Fingers Louie, Pegboy, No Empathy, Rights Of The Accused, Screeching Weasel, 7 Seconds, Butthole Surfers, & perhaps the best?!: Cock Sparrer! If you don't know anything about this show, then check out the full list of bands here.
So I've been quite busy the past couple months planning for the trip and what not. Caught a couple of shows as well. Like I said in the last post, saw Patti Smith two Thursdays ago at the Santa Monica Pier. Great Show! Couldn't believe she had Tom Verlaine on guitar & Flea on bass! Last Thursday I went to Los Angeles premiere of Let Them Know: The Story Of Youth Brigade & B.Y.O. Records. What a night that was! First was the movie, then there was a show with Youth Brigade, Swingin' Utters, & 7 Seconds! So like I said, I've been kinda busy. Check this out to see when the movie is coming to a town near you.
So since I'll be heading to Chicago once again in 3 weeks, let's hear some Chicago music! Here's a split between two of my favorite bands: 88 Fingers Louie & The Bollweevils. Now 88's gonna play this year which I'm totally psyched about, but unfortunately The Bollweevils aren't. And neither are The Effigies. At least I got see them both in 2006. So here they are doing covers of Bhopal Stiffs, Articles Of Faith, Naked Raygun, & The Effigies. This was released in 1994 I believe on Rocco Records. So enjoy this and stay tuned for some more Chicago!
