Photo Gallery: Riot Fest East, Philadelphia, PA – 7 Seconds, Naked Raygun, The Suicide Machines

This round of photos brings you sets from 7Seconds, Naked Raygun and The Suicide Machines, who played in the late afternoon on Saturday. Fun fact: when 7Seconds took the stage, the security guards warned us that they might pull the photographers out of the pit sooner than usual if the crowd got too rowdy. They didn’t have to, but that’s what kind of audience the band inspires.

Check out the gallery here. And as I’ve said a few times now, keep checking back for more.

In case you missed it, we’ve already posted multiple galleries from the day-long festival, which you can check out here.



Random Cover Song Thursday: Suicide Machines cover REM song “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)”

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge. This week, it’s Suicide Machines covering the REM classic, “It’s The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)”.

Check out the cover and compare it to the original here. It’s definitely an amusing take on the song, especially when the vocals speed up!
