I had the chance to attend the annual 3-day Riot Fest and Carnival in Chicago. Each stage performance consisted of rock and punk bands that were brand new, current or bands that had been doing this for a while. Each and every act I saw that weekend performed a great set. For me, Day 1 consisted of The Flatliners, Dessa, Saul Williams, Hatebreed, Andrew W.K., Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and Fall Out Boy. You can read a recap of the weekend here. Hope you enjoy the photos!
