In celebration of its 15th birthday, Riot Fest has already announced an incredible festival lineup with limited $49.98 single-day tickets, featuring the likes of Blink-182, Slayer’s final Chicago performance, and the rare opportunity to see the recently reunited Bikini Kill. Today they up the ante with a mind-boggling assortment of after shows across Chicago. Tickets for all of the 2019 Late Night shows will go on sale Friday, August 9th at 10:00 a.m. CDT.
Everyone’s favorite superheroes The Aquabats will kick things off with an early show at Metro Thursday evening before the fest. Friday late night shows include Lucero at Cobra Lounge, PVRIS at Bottom Lounge and Dashboard Confessional at Reggie’s Rock Club—as well as the Emo Night Brooklyn DJ party at Metro.
Saturday night, Descendents are rocking Bottom Lounge; Hot Snakes hit the stage at Cobra Lounge; Taking Back Sunday (performing Where You Want to Be) and The Get Up Kids team up at Concord Music Hall; Against Me! will take over the Metro (performing both As The Eternal Cowboy and New Wave front-to-back) and Cock Sparrer will perform at Reggie’s. Sunday night, Avail will headline the Bottom Lounge, and Teenage Bottlerocket will headline Cobra Lounge.
