Riot Fest Chicago and Denver are just over a month away (Toronto is even sooner!), and to kick off our coverage of the festival, we're bringing you our "Riot Fest for Dummies" guide. We've basically made a feature that serves to provide a step-by-step process for getting yourself to any of the three Riot Fest destinations. This is nothing that you couldn't find with some online searches, so the value in this guide is the convenience factor. Check it out in the replies and let us know if you're planning on heading out to any of the upcoming Riot weekends.
This week on the Self Promotion Forum, I discovered an eighteen track compilation released by Chords For Cures. The compilation is 'name your price' on the organisations' Bandcamp, however all proceeds go to TACA (Talk About Curing Autism). The compilation is filled with fairly unknown bands, however there's something for everyone on here; whether it be the female fronted pop punk of Kick Back Tomorrow, the noodly emo of Those Galloping Hordes or the country rock of The Band Of Rivals. Great music, great cause. Interested in being a part of the Self-Promotion Spotlight? It's easy, just sign up for an AbsolutePunk.net account and post in the Self-Promotion forum.
