Riot Fest Recap – Day Two (Street Dogs, Total Chaos, Conflict and more)

Riot Fest’s second day found that bastard, the sun, at it again when California punks Total Chaos began their afternoon set. Before they began, they did treat the crowd with a quick verse from Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades”during soundcheck. The band played a blistering set of breakneck punk like “In Unity,” “Riot City” and their recent track “Street Punx”off their eponymous EP. Both the band and the crowd were wearing studded jackets, patched-up vests, Mohawks and liberty spikes.

Lower Class Brats keep the momentum going. Wearing all black and singer Bones channeling his inner Adicts with his derby hat, the Austin, Texas band covered “All The Young Dudes” as a dedication to David Bowie. The rest of the set was blessed with an insane circle pit and folks just crowd surfing.

British anarcho-punks Conflict were a bit disappointing. Keeping up Lower Class Brat’s all-black-everything look, the band tried their best to get the crowd going with a smattering of success. Even singer Colin Jerwood (the only original member), stepping off stage to sing and greet the crowd didn’t help. Add to the equation some problems with the vocal mic and the overall set was a bit of a let down.

Street Dogs, on the other hand, put on a pumped set. Even with their covers of “Guns of Brixton”, “Borstal Breakout,” and “Blitzkrieg Bop” the Boston band infused it with a kinetic energy that slammed the crowd into hysterics. Even singer Mike McColgan stage dived and kept singing while he was crowdsurfing.
