Riot Fest 2014’s Mega Lineup Unleashed

RIOT FEST 2014

The plan here was to post the pic of all the bands and just name a handful of ones that us here at Concert Confessions are fans of and stuff like that. Then, as I kept reading into the poster containing the lineup for the 2014 Riot Fest in Chicago, this thing just has so much one would want to check out. Your top billing is The Cure, Jane’s Addiction, The National, Rise Against and Weezer while The Flaming Lips, Social Distortion, Slayer, The Offspring and Staten Island’s very own Wu-Tang Clan rounding out your ten highest billed performers. Dig deeper into the lineup and you’ll find Pussy Riot, Thurston Moore, Kurt Vile. You’ll also run into Failure and The Dandy Warhols. The Afghan Whigs are back, and you guessed it, they’re here too. My new favorite heroes(i.e. Dave Grohl/Safe Music) Mastodon is at this party as well. Feel free to have some fun too, throw a little Cheap Trick in your day. Things you don’t see here: Outkast, Lorde, Kanye West, Vampire Weekend, Skrillex and all those other garbage festival junkies you see on every card. Lots of music with guitars here.

Cody ChesnuTT came out to start the night, the first artist confirmation of the Festival. After his short set came “surprise guests” Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, who confirmed their own Gorge set for May after performing Thrift Shop, Same Love and Can’t Hold Us.

Dropkick Murphys Unveil ‘ St. Patricks Day Tour 2013 ‘

Dropkick Murphys Unveil ‘ St. Patricks Day Tour 2013 ‘ 

The Dropkick Murphys always do it up big for St. Patricks Day. 2013 will be no different as they will literally be “Shipping Up To Boston” with a February/March tour that leads into a three night finale in Boston. The band kicks things off in Ohio February 21st and from their they do three nights in Texas a few days into it, including stops at two different House of Blues locations in the state. Then from Florida up the coast to two night stints in Phlly, the 9:30 Club in DC, New York City’s Terminal 5 before ending the tour with a show at the House of Blues location on Lansdowne St.in Boston right on the same block those losers the Red Sox play baseball. Truth be told, I could hit .315 in the major leagues if I played 82 games with that stupid wall in the outfield. I digress. The tour dates lay below, for more information check out the band’s official website here.
