Screaming Females at Riot Fest Brooklyn - 9/8/12 (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
Screaming Females

Riot Fest Brooklyn went down in Williamsburg Park yesterday (9/8) with sets from Screaming Females, The Bronx, The Menzingers, and Larry And HIs Flask. Unfortunately, due to the storm that NYC got hit with yesterday, was shut down before Hot Water Music's set, which meant that Descendents and Gogol Bordello didn't get to play either. Refunds on tickets are available at point of purchase and Riot Fest Brooklyn tickets will also be honored at no extra cost for Chicago's Riot Fest, which goes down this coming weekend. Some pictures from the Brooklyn show are up on BV Chicago with more coming soon for regular BV.

After the show was cancelled, similarly to Refused and OFF!, who got shut down due to weather at the same venue earlier this summer, Descendents and Hot Water Music took the show over to a smaller Brooklyn venue. At 8 PM, the two bands took over Saint Vitus for a free show and needless to say it was a packed, sweaty show, with the crowd moshing, crowd surfing, and going nuts. Videos of the Descendents ripping through "Everything Sucks," "Coffee Mug," "I'm Not A Loser," "Thank You," "I'm the One" and others, plus videos of Hot Water Music doing "Trusty Chords," "State of Grace," and a cover of the Bouncing Souls' "True Believers" at the show are below.

How do you apply to be one of the fat girls who stands on stage?

I heard Obama was there. So it must've been a cool event, since he's such a cool dude and all

"needless to say it was a packed, sweaty show, with the crowd moshing, crowd surfing, and going nuts"

They wouldn't have been like that in Austin.

I am 5:22 and I know who Bill Stevenson is. He was in All. Apparently having a popular video on MTV in the 90s can't save you from having a fat wife.

5:22 you are an idiot

5:22 just started going to shows a year ago. Just started with the witty comments on bv a few weeks ago. His old hs buddies from Orlando are impressed he's living that cool NYC lifestyle!

Way to go Brah!

People that say things like "Orlando" as a joke are from Indiana right?

Posted by Anonymous | September 9, 2012 10:59 PM

Other way around.

None of those fat girls married a dude in hit water music? Do the descendents have any good songs that weren't in pump up the volume?

Posted by Anonymous | September 10, 2012 12:54 AM

Anyone who visits this site and doesn't cop to leaning about this band from pump up the volume is seriously lying to.themselves.

First, 5:22 is funny.
And people who mention Orlando as a joke are from Ohio, like everybody else in recent years, not from Indiana.
It goes: Ohio, texas & asian girls from sacramento.
America won the war, new york has lost.

@ 10:06, a large part of the crowd were people that were there for the regular show that got pushed back, and were COMPLAINING about having to sit through the descendants set.
No one got turned away from this show.
If you bought tickets through MSO for Riotfest they sent out a mass email about the free show.
