Punk Kin of All Ages Welcome--Under 5 Are Free at Riot Fest Humboldt Park

Our 9 year old daughter has been a die hard 80's punk for the first decade of her life, proudly belting out lyrics to Ramones tunes, Iggy Pop, Elvis Costello, Naked Raygun and everything from Dead Kennedys to Dead Milkmen.   Just the past couple of months we've started to lose her to B96 tunes that her competitive gymnastics team work out to 10 hours a week.   We need an infusion of Riot Fest STAT!!

It's time again for one of our all time favorite annual music fests and we'll be there all weekend with the punk kin in tow.  We've been there every year and watched Riot Fest grow up, baby!    This year we're invading Humbolt Park for two days of excellent tunes, carnival rides, and anarchy.    

We'll be bringing you band features, must see lists (don't tell me what to do), photo filled features and more.  


First up, tonight we'll be shooting at Congress Theater

At least they're easing us in.   Tonight there are 4 rockin' bands playing in sequence--not simultaneously.   And there are no tough choices to be made.   So go already.   Tickets are sold out again, so if you have a 3 day band or tickets we'll see you out there.   If not, rest up and we'll party in the park with you tomorrow.  

Got PUNK KIN?   Remember, Congress shows and the whole lineup Sat and Sun outside at Humboldt are all ages shows and free to kids under 5 years old with a paying adult.    Check the tickets page for other venues age requirements.
