ALL reunites for Chicago Riot Fest

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The influential, post-Descendents punk-rock band ALL will reunite to headline the annual raucous celebration of Riot Fest on Oct. 10-12 at the Congress Theatre.

Coming together again for the first time in two decades, the lineup will be the one behind the albums "Allroy’s Revenge," "Allroy Saves" and "Perculator," with vocalist Scott Reynolds, drummer Bill Stevenson, guitarist Karl Alvarez and bassist Stephen Egerton.

Together with the annual Hideout Block Party and the Pitchfork Music Festival, Riot Fest is one of the best independently produced celebrations of cutting-edge rock music in the U.S. -- and a welcome reminder that mega-bucks corporate sponsorships ala Lollapalooza aren't the only way to fund a festival. Tickets for this year's concert go on sale at 8 a.m. on April 24 via

Holy cow! ALL? Went to Riot Fest '06 and had a blast watching the Blue Meanies, Raygun and 7Seconds play. This is awesome news. Now, we just need Milo to come.
