The Bronx @ Riot Fest Brooklyn - 9/8/2012
As discussed on BrooklynVegan, Riot Fest's first attempt at a NYC festival got cut short on Saturday when rain (and tornadoes) caused the promotoers to shut things down before Hot Water Music, Descendents and Gogol Bordello could play. One interesting outcome of that is that "RIOT FEST Brooklyn tickets will be honored at no cost for the RIOT FEST & CARNIVAL dates next weekend at Humboldt Park in Chicago on September 15-16." It's been a rough year for Riot Fest whose Philly fest also didn't work out as planned.
Bands that did get to play Riot Fest Brooklyn included Larry and His Flask (who are also playing Chicago), Screaming Females (ditto), The Menzingers, and The Bronx. Some pictures from those four sets are in this post. More of them below...
