These questions were really fucking great! I love that you asked about things that went wrong/missed opportunities, rather than the usual "What made you so successful?"

My music nerd alarm went off...

ERM?

The new Spraynard record is fucking fantastic. Haven't listened to the new Elway yet. I've been wanting this band to "break me" since the first album (I've not been a huge fan).

A rad addition to an already awesome night! Trashed isn't my favorite Lagwagon record, but it's definitely a fun one... And I'm pretty sure they'll be able to squeeze in a bunch of other tracks...

Yeah. I'm not so sure I fully understand it.

I'm enjoying Apple Music as a whole (and mostly, the newer version of iTunes) but it seems like Apple rushed this one out in an effort to get into...

Maybe I've grown cynical over the years, but I highly doubt that... I know Brand New has a solid track record as far as bringing bands out on the road and having people get behind them as a result. ...

To my knowledge, this isn't an option. There is a way to create a music library consisting only of tracks that you want to be in the cloud...

Great to hear they have a new one on the way! Really loved Peninsula...

Here's hoping this new one has more success in the States than the last did.

In some cases, I feel like bands who might not be actively touring so much (or are doing a run of festival shows and want to play a smaller gig), or to "warm-up" for the festival itself.

With that...

It all depends on the day, and the band for me. Last year I went to the Get Up Kids show with Modern Baseball and the So So Glo's and in no way, shape, or form did I regret that decision (the rain...

I can see it being something cool/fun if you were to like, record a song (or set of songs) for a loved one or whatever, but beyond that? ...

Last year they announced Chicago's aftershows in mid-August, and Denver's the following week. So we're already off-pattern. Haha.

I would assume we'd get Chicago announcements sometime within the...

Of all the days, Sunday is the weakest but there's still plenty there for me. And I always go back and forth with this: If there's too many bands I want to see? You risk missing someone. If there's...

Good point here. Some of the headliners don't tour much, but they don't quite have that "holy shit" vibe or "legendary" status that those acts had.

Give it a few years, though. Hah.

Definitely one of the most underrated bands around. And given that they could be lumped in with several different genres, could easily tour with a number of the US's biggest rock acts... I'm always...

This is a good point. Both Friday and Saturday last year I was pretty careful to be sure that I left before the end of the last song by the last...

Those aftershows in Denver are insane. That Lawrence Arms/SUCCESS combo is fantastic!

I'm hoping for some combination of a Lifetime/Movielife/CIV one in Chicago. Or Joyce Manor/Beach...

In my opinion, Taking Back Sunday are at an all-time high as far as live performances go. May be a controversial opinion, but I think they're at a point where they are more than okay with being a...

If they stick to the same pattern they've had the last few years, it'll be entirely possible that Rancid and System of a Down will have overlapping sets but it's really too soon to tell.

I don't...

Facebook hinted at it coming this week. I'm going based solely on the article. It doesn't mean it's definitely coming but... That's what the Riot Fest spokeswoman apparently said, haha.
