Riot Fest in Chicago, Sound on Sound in Austin
We got invited to head out to Chicago to play Riot Fest and then down to Austin to play the new Sound on Sound festival. It was an odd one as we trudged out to the fields of Chicago to play in the middle of the day on Friday. Luckily we saw a bunch of friends on their lunch hour and we got to see a bunch of cool bands that day. Watching the Specials from the stage was one of the high points because they are still god damn great.
In Austin, we headed out to the magic haunted fairgrounds and hit the stage with the fab.ulous Metz, and got to see Youth of Today and Beach House and a Deer band and a bunch of other talented folks. It was all around magical in the abandoned magical amusement park.
