Riot Fest Chicago 2014 – Saturday (NSFW)

Saturday: The Buzzcocks, Television, The Afghan Whigs, (burlesque dancers), Wu-Tang Clan, The Flaming Lips, The National

 

The Buzzcocks still have it.  Old school Brit punk at its best.  Talked with Steve Diggle (white shirt) about how Simon Cowell  is ruining music, his love of rock ‘n’ roll, and the importance of music festivals.

Wu-Tang was sick.  It seemed like everyone at Riot Fest went to see them.

The Flaming Lips:

The Flaming Lips blew out the power as they transitioned into the second song.  So Wayne did his best to entertain by bringing out a “Fuck Yeah Riot Fest” balloon (which can be bought at your local Jewel-Osco for $19.99).  The crowd destroyed it within a minute.

But then the power was back on, and they fired up the confetti canons, and all was well in this strange, strange universe.
