Riot Fest Tops The Rest

The lineup for this year's Riot Fest was announced this week and it's a doozy. Just when you thought the music festival bubble had burst, that every fest had morphed into the same cookie cutter lineup, this happens. And get this...instead of Perry Farrell playing his own festival's tenth year in Chicago, Jane's Addiction will play Riot Fest's 10th Anniversary. Jaw. Drop. Mind. Blown.

It was a big week for Tankboy and Chicagoist with the initial lineup announcement (yes, that's yours truly posing as "an excited Riot Fest fan"), an interview with the fest's founder, Riot Mike, and this latest announcement that ten of the bands will be playing full album sets in honor of the tenth anniversary.

I don't want to wish summer away, but I'm excited for September to get here!

Engagement Photos

We're pretty excited about getting married, but decided to forgo an engagement party and photo session since our life is pretty much one big party and we got to take pics with these folks the week we got engaged:

Really though, aren't there enough events already involved in the whole wedding process?

Now Playing: Chromeo

We had the pleasure of seeing these guys at a small-ish venue (smaller than these two usually play anyway) last week, and they just released a new album which I've been totally jamming ever since. Can not get "Sexy Socialite" out of my head! Listen to those lyrics, too, they're kind of hilarious.
