It’s October which means two things for the windy city of Chicago: first, the nights are beginning to get pretty f***in’ cold! and second, Riot Fest 2011 is upon us. Opening up Wednesday at the Bottom Lounge and closing the weekend Sunday at AAA, fans are able to gather for five nights of great music and better beer.
With a diverse line-up including Chicago natives Smoking Popes and billboard chart-toppers Weezer, fans of all ages are drawn to this tour. Other venues taking part of the festivities include Congress Theater, Double Door, and Cobra Lounge. Special secret shows will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night for those dedicated fans looking for a surprise. Sorry kids, I don’t have any information to spill!
Tickets and special weekend passes are still available, so if you haven’t already, be sure to head over to the Official Riot Fest Website to guarantee your ticket and check out the complete schedule.
