    It’s a shame you didn’t catch Stiff Little Fingers. They were excellent. Kudos to Riot Fest for showcasing Chicago area bands like Cheap Trick, Rise Against (who’s singer and bass player have a history here) and Naked Raygun, as without them, Chicago wouldn’t have too much of a scene to have a festival in. Hopefully the lawn will come back, as it sucks to ruin a park for some bands that could easily play in a dirty night club somewhere, where we all know that’s the best place to see rock.
