I saw them play the whole album at a Riot Fest secret show a few years ago. It is as awesome to see as you would think that it would be.

Rancid is going to play all of And Out Come the Wolves at Punk Rock Bowling this year. I wouldn't mind them coming back to Riot Fest to do it there too.

Riot Fest put on their Chicago show when they toured a few years ago and they were supposed to play Riot Fest Philly before the whole thing got cancelled. So I wouldn't be surprised, as long as they...

I could be wrong but I think the early bird tickets lasted longer last year than they did this year. The real explosion of excitement is still a few months off.

Yeah, I left Streetlight pretty early and still figured that I would only get between 5-10 minutes of Buzzcocks, but I took way too long for some reason that time and ended up getting there in the...

Exactly! I've always enjoy seeing them, but Greg has normally been a bit more low key when I've seen them in the past.

Well, I always love seeing them, but I just feel like Greg had a bit more energy that day a lot of other times that I've seen them.

As far as my biggest regret, it is missing pretty much all of the...

I completely agree with both. They were nowhere as energetic as other times that I've seen them. And that setlist was a little painful. And I was a little annoyed that they ended on that long...

Besides Green Day, which should be an obvious choice to have headline Riot Fest, I could see them going after bands like Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, etc. ...

I wouldn't count out anyone because I don't think they are a typical Riot Fest band based on style. They really just book whoever they feel like. Pretty much I feel like as long as you aren't a pop...

I don't remember him yelling. And I don't think he was drunk. It was a solo show though, so maybe it was while he was singing a song. It was a fun set.

So my top 5 were probably Cock Sparrer, The Offspring, Billy Bragg, Blue Meanies, and Bouncing Souls (Greg seemed to be having a lot of fun, which made the whole set really enjoyable regardless of...

I'll say some more when I get a chance but here are some of my first thoughts:

1) My best set of the weekend was Cock Sparrer. They were amazing. Pretty lively for a band that has been around...

For some reason I was thinking they had been here more recently than they actually have been. Well, that makes my choice tougher again.

That is one of my biggest conflicts too. If Get Up Kids weren't playing Something to Write Home About I would say definitely Dashboard because TGUK play Chicago pretty regularly (they have even...

You can always bring a hoodie and stuff if it is chilly. Not much to help you out with 90 degree or higher weather in a big crowd. last year on Sunday I wore a hoodie and a poncho and I didn't...

I know. The original map made it look like the Rock Stage was going to be all the way down near Division, which would have made it a sizable walk from even the closest stages. But looking at the...

Wonder what he is considering a decent amount. I was going to skip them for Me First and Paul Weller, but if they are going to play a bunch from IARB, maybe I will go see some of their set.
