The Replacements Named Headliner of Riot Fest

Posted by - 08:11 PM on 06/12/13
That's right people, The Replacements are headlining the Chicago, Toronto and Denver Riot Fest lineups. The shows are the band's first performances in 22 years.

Incredible. This is ten times better than anything that was speculated. This line-up is impeccable.

Did I feel old when TOYPAJ turned 12? Yes. Did I feel old when TTTYG turned 10? Yes. Did I feel old when people complain they don't know who the Replacements are and why they are headlining Riot Fest? Holy shit yes.

I'm so excited for September.

Getting to see all of this for 80 dollars is unreal.

This. Compared to Denver and Chicago, the Toronto line-up is incredibly disappointing. I was thinking of flying out, but I'm not going to now. It would be cool to catch The Replacements, but I'm going to see The Flatliners in July, I live in Winnipeg so I'm not really in a hurry to see the Weakerthans, I really dislike some of those bands and the rest I'm just indifferent about. All the bands I actually wanted to see (Fall Out Boy, Off With Their Heads, Alkaline Trio, Rancid, Bad Religion, Brand New, Against Me!) aren't playing and that's a huge bummer.

Cool, thanks. I honestly have never listened to The Replacements. I better get on that. Buying a VIP pass to Riot Fest might be the best purchase I've ever made.

I can't believe I got POZ, AP.net, PN, and UTG sponsorship for all of these. Feels rad to be a part of it.
