Riot Fest Chicago is around the corner, and all the punks are dancing in their pants. But what is it about Riot Fest that has set it apart from the rest of the festival scene? Is there something other fests are missing? (Spoiler alert: YES). Check out my two-cents in the replies. Tickets are still available, but you only have a few days until the party starts.

Butch Walker just posted a bunch of tweets in a row addressing when fans think a producer changed a band and how Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco don't want to keep making 90's pop-punk albums.
I love how people assume when I work with an artist that the actual ARTIST has nothing to do with deciding how it will sound. I love my day job, but these kind of shallow assumptions take some fun out of it. I've seen em say the producer "ruined their favorite band." ..When most people have no clue what they are talking about or how it works. Sometimes, God Forbid, the ARTIST comes in with their vision. Good on Panic and FOB for wanting to evolve and change. Most bands in their scene can't...

A behind-the-scenes look at how Cobra Starship's recent lyric video was created can be read over at Shutterstock.
Going in to this shoot, there was a very ambitious concept: light painting all of the lyrics around New York City using a Pixelstick. The shoot would incorporate stop-motion techniques, as well as hyperlapse shots, going from Brooklyn to Manhattan over the Williamsburg bridge, as well as through Times Square.

What happened when Milo went to college? Check out this great profile on the Descendents frontman.
Despite the unconventional shifting that he does between the worlds of molecular biology and punk rock, Aukerman says heís never suffered "any kind of fallout." Fellow scientists, he says, "are very interested in someone whoís not just stuck at the lab bench all day and who can actually go out and do something completely different, something wacky and bizarre." Likewise, for peers in punk rock, "even if they don't really understand what I do necessarily, it's so different to them that it becomes more of a facet that can be fascinating," he says. Even Aukermanís parents have come around to...

Gene Simmons has declared that "rock is finally dead." Now that we've got that settled ... what's next?
Rock did not die of old age. It was murdered. Some brilliance, somewhere, was going to be expressed, and now it wonít, because itís that much harder to earn a living playing and writing songs. No one will pay you to do it.

Our interview with Finch can be found here, where they talk about reuniting for their first album in over nine years.
I donít know what people are expecting and expecting of us. I just hope that people like it, thatís all. If people donít like it, thatís OK. It wonít stop us from making music. I donít think that ever has. Weíve never stopped because we didnít think that people mattered, it was just because we werenít comfortable. We stop when things feel odd.
