the huge music fan that I am, over the past couple years of my life I have attended probably
more music festivals and concerts than the average human being, but Riot Fest in Chicago is by
far the most unique one I have ever experienced.
Riot Fest is a music festival over the course of three days specializing in punk, rock, alternative,
metal, and hip-hop, which is a similar format to the music our Djs play at the station. This year I
arrived just in time to see Kongos— an African, alternative rock band consisting of four brothers,
Cypress hill—An old school, Latino- American hip hop group, Snoop Dogg—the one and only
—and Modest Mouse performing tracks off their new album Strangers To Ourselves.
Modest Mouse impressed me the most with their noisy guitars and Issac Brock’s angsty rants,
which appealed to both the younger and old crowd. Their music is one of the most interesting
success stories in rock history, and there's no doubt that their new album will be just as
successful as their last with great tracks like>> Strangers to Ourselves and Be Brave. I
recommend you check these out :)))
