Riot Fest announces guests for Speakers’ Stage

Last year, Riot Fest unveiled a Speakers’ Stage, where musicians and activists engage in a panel discussion in front of the audience.  Due to the success of last year’s lineup, which included members of Russian female punk group Pussy Riot, Riot Fest is bringing back the Speakers’ Stage.

This year’s speakers will be split over 2 days, with the September 12th event featuring Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin of the “West Memphis Three.”  In a panel moderated by Henry Rollins,  they will discuss their history and the way music activism contributed to their release after 18 years in prison, after being wrongly accused of the murders of three young boys in 1993.  On September 13th, the event will feature Joe Principe (Rise Against), Jeff Pezatti (Naked Raygun,), Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms), Nan Warshaw (founder, Bloodshot Records), Daryl Wilson (The Bollweevils) and Dem Hopkins (owner of the legendary Club Oz).

Chicago Blackhawks goalie takes medical leave of absence after busting ass at a Rise Against show

According to recent reports, Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is going to have to sit the next two to three weeks out due to a recent injury he sustained… not on the ice, but at a Rise Against show at House of Blues Chicago.

Crawford sustained a lower-body injury (whatever that means) when he “missed a step” on his way out of the show. He’s pretty embarrassed by the incident, and frustrated that he will have to sit out the team’s next few games.

This isn’t the first time the goalie has had to take a medical leave of absence this season. Back in October, he missed six games after sustaining, you guessed it, a lower-body injury. While some Blackhawks fans aren’t very happy he’s injured again, and are voicing their frustration on the band’s Facebook page, others are getting a kick of the ordeal.
