Riot Fest is taking place all 3 days this weekend at Douglas Park in Chicago featuring one of the best festival lineups in 2017 with an eclectic force of punk, industrial, hip hop, and experimental lineups that will be sure to cause many a mosh pit.
Here is my personal playlist of bops and jams by artists who are playing at Loufest 2017 this weekend.
Back in 2009, Keith and Michael Jeffery decided to start the band Atlas Genius. Their debut, “Trojans”, reached 4th on Billboard’s US Alternative Songs chart. We had the chance to sit down with them before their show on the BMI stage at Lollapalooza 2017.
Honestly, 6LACK is just a really confusing name.
Sorry if I offend you.
Behind a tent in the media village, Johnny Pierce and I huddled around a TasCam as the first sets of the weekend poured out from the Grant Park stage behind us.
The mystery of Lo Moon: that is the only thing I heard before meeting the trio.
Originating from Toronto, the punk rock band PUP emerged under the name Topanga. And yes, that is a reference to Danielle Fishel’s character on Boy Meets World.
We were able to catch them after their energetic set on the Tito’s stage Thursday morning. They performed again later that day in an intimate show at the Toyota Music Den. Listen below to see how the band overcomes perfectionism, and how crowds in America differ from other areas of the world.
This was something I was not prepared for and I don’t know if there is any way that anyone could ever be.
