Riot Fest Chicago happens September 16-18 and what will surely be the coolest item of merch available will be a pack of official Riot Fest Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, made especially for the fest by Topps. In addition to a card dedicated to the fest, there will be cards for seven of the acts playing:

1) NOFX (“Fat Mike”)
2) The Lawrence Arms (“The Lawrence Harmed”)
3) Naked Raygun (“Ray Gun”)
4) Descendents (“Mad Milo”)
5) Riot Fest (“Riot Festus”)
6) Andrew WK (“Awesome Andrew”)
7) Taking Back Sunday (“Taking Back Tidal Wave”)
8) GWAR (“GWAR Noir”)

Aren't GWAR kind of already a living breathing Garbage Pail Kids set? Also, what, no Morrissey card? What would Moz's Garbage Pail Kids name be?

It's only a small run of this set, so if you're going to Riot Fest, maybe stop by the merch booth on the way in to pick these up.
