Danzig

We previously discussed Phily's Riot Fest East that will feature an appearance from the mighty Descendents and The Suicide Machines who they also play with in NYC. Riot Fest East, an offshoot of the Chicago festival, happens on September 24th.

The Chicago version of the festival, October 5-9, previously announced that Weezer, Social Distortion, Descendents, 7 Seconds, ALL (two different eras!), Helmet, and X (playing Los Angeles) were all on the lineup, but left one big announcement for today...

On Friday October 7, 2011 Danzig will headline Riot Fest and perform a career spanning show featuring sets of Danzig, Samhain and Misfits songs with none other than Doyle joining on guitar the Misfits set. We've waited years for this and we can't wait to see the inside of the Congress Theater turn into a churning sea of humanity.
Tickets for both Riot Fest Chicago and Riot Fest East are now on sale, and more band announcements are stil to come(!).

Tickets are now also on sale for the Descendents show at Roseland Ballroom that Suicide Machines and H20 are opening.

X are performing Los Angeles at both Riot Fests AND on two nights at Irving Plaza in NYC. Tickets are on sale for those shows too.

Riot Fest show flyers and some videos is below.

I don't care if they're all in their 60's when it happens, but I would pay loads to see a full-on Misfits reunion.

Here's to hoping those Misfits songs are played in the late 70s punk style instead of the faster, early 80s hardcore style. the "Beware" era stuff is some of the best shit ever. Most drummers can't play like that with a closed hi-hat for very long...

Here's to hoping they can pull off cough/cool and queen wasp, because all Misfits is the best shit ever.

Lawyers could perform their professional duties with dignity and self respect only under a system where the rule of law and independence of the judiciary is respected.
