The underground bands of Riot Fest

Posted by xan on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 8:00 PM (EDT)
ImageAha! Riot Fest Chicago is upon us, and it is impossible to deny just how perfect this weekend should be. As a fourth-time fest-goer and local Chicagoan, I've found few weekends in this city that compare to this one. Not only do I get to see a plethora of my favorite bands, I get to hang out in the stellar September weather, have quality time with friends and get much needed exercise. And while there are very few drawbacks to Riot Fest, there is one glaring issue: How to successfully navigate the weekend. With such an incredible lineup of bands, it's easy to forget that there are smaller, up and coming bands playing the festival too, and a good deal of them are worth checking out.

I won't lie, I had never heard of some of these bands before see this years Riot Fest lineup. But, after detailed research I actually ended up finding some new favorites, and the hope is that after going through this you will too. There are a few lulls in the schedule each day, but a lot of the bands on this list fill those voids.

Weatherbox drop off tour with Finch and Maps & Atlases

Posted by brittany on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 5:30 PM (EDT)
Weatherbox Weatherbox have dropped off their current tour with Finch and Maps and Atlases due to an illness affecting vocalist Brian Warren.

For us it's a double-edged sword because the only way we could have possibly been kept from this tour is health and unfortunately that's still the issue we face. Brian has been in and out of facilities since we returned in early August and unfortunately the symptoms he encountered back on tour continue to plague him.

We'd like to extend a huge apology to Finch, Maps & Atlases, all the fans and promoters, and anyone else affected by our cancellation. We believe more tha[n] anyone that the show must go on, but we simply cannot tour until Brian can be stabilized.

Weatherbox released Flies In All Directions this year.

Media: Stray Bullets: “Peace Signs”

Posted by brittany on Thursday, September 11, 2014 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Stray Bullets Boston, MA's Stray Bullets, featuring Jon Cauztik of Have Nots, are streaming a new song entitled "Peace Signs" from their forthcoming release Ghost Town Rockers. The song is inspired by Cauztik's views on how society and law enforcement treat street crime caused by the youth in communities.

Strong arm measures, while sometimes serving to get the numbers down, don't address the root of the problem. Maybe prevention, rather than suppression, should be examined as an alternative. Maybe the neighborhood pride, bravado, and need to belong that lead kids to turn towards ultimately destructive things like street gangs, and subsequently street violence, could be expressed and utilized in a more constructive way. "All the kids want something to do", as the old song goes, so let's give it to them. Let's empower the youth instead of sweeping them under the rug. Let's tell our local politicians to put that increased police budget towards accessible summer programs. Let's organize and mobilize BEFORE another kid gets shot, instead of having to hold a vigil afterwards.

Ghost Town Rockers is due out October 7, 2014 via Dying Scene Records. You can listen to the new song below.
