Descendents

It began in Chicago, expanded to Philadelphia last year, and Brooklyn, Toronto and Dallas will get a Riot Fest of its own. The Brooklyn one happens September 8 at Williamsburg Park, yet another big show for the new outdoor venue. The lineup includes Descendents (!!), Hot Water Music, Gogol Bordello,The Bronx, Screaming Females, The Menzingers, and Larry and His Flask. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 15 at noon with a presale starting Thursday (6/14) at 10AM (pw: RIOT). Flyer for Riot Fest Brooklyn is below.

The Bronx and Gogol Bordello shouldn't be on the line up. Descendents should be headlining this. And 12:03 is right

Descendents' first reunion show in NYC was in '97 at Roseland.

Why does Brooklyn get the worst line-up? Sort of a yawner.

12:12- Really, then why did I see them at Wetlands in 1996?

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2012 1:16 PM

12:33: Are you serious? Other than Off!, the Philly line-up is wretched.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2012 1:18 PM

Philly's still missing 2 days

1:16 never saw them at Wetlands. You were in 3rd grade living it up in Allentown, PA.

Posted by Anonymous | June 12, 2012 1:56 PM

1:56- Nice try dickbag, but I was there. And I wish I was that young. Sorry to inform, but you missed some good shows. Don't project your jealousy on me. And I have lived in NY my whole life. Wanna try again? Twat.

DALLAS...wtf? Not good enough to travel from Austin. Should've been in Austin/San Antonio

Great article — look at this group trying to create a rock community in NYC: http://www.facebook.com/RockvineNYC?ref=ts

Posted by JH | June 12, 2012 3:15 PM

2:36 is 22, never seen Descendents, but super, duper psyched to finally see them in Billyburg!

And, BTW - I've seen all the bands to see at Wetlands: Avail, Agnostic Front, BTJ, Rancid/H2O, Crown of Thornz, SOIA, Madball, HR etc...

I'm way cooler than you'll ever be. Not projecting, just the truth, son.
