I just want the Mr. T Experience. They are played some shows in California so maybe it will be possible this year. I considered going out to Cali just to see them. So if they played, Riot Fest...

Since they aren't playing Lolla, it looks like Alice In Chains might be playing Riot Fest.

I might try to get a one day to see Sir Paul. I wouldn't mind seeing Metallica too, but not for that much money.

I must say that with the setlists that I've seen online for Blink with Skiba, I would be pretty happy about them playing.

AC/DC is also pretty doubtful because they are already playing Wrigley Field the Tuesday after Riot Fest, although if they played Riot Fest I would definitely go see them.

Riot Fest did announce it, along with announcing the pre-sale. And there are numerous reasons that they might not have announced them playing Chicago even if they are. The most obvious reason being...

I think that it is pretty likely that Riot Fest Chicago is the TBA USA date. I mean, it falls in between X-Fest and Riot Fest Toronto.

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.

American Football are playing four nights in Chicago. They are at the Bottom Lounge on 12/30 and 12/31 and at Lincoln Hall on 1/1 and 1/2.

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...
