DS Exclusive: Riot Fest Recap – Day Three (Alkaline Trio, Bad Religion, Bouncing Souls and more)

Day 3 started off rocky. FEAR went on stage play the debut album “FEAR: The Record”in its entirety. Actually, they started the set with “Fuck You, Let’s Rodeo”and “Honor and Obey”from their 1995 album “Have Another Beer with FEAR.” FEAR fans will tell you that the band is, well, not exactly PC, so it was interesting how the crowd will react to the album. Well, no need to worry because singer Lee Ving changed some of the words in certain songs to be a bit more friendly. But self-censorship was only one of the problems with the set, as it seemed the band didn’t do that much practicing, with the guitarist struggling during “Sanatorium”and Ving missed his cue on, well, quite a few songs, actually. A weird thing considering he’s been singing these songs for over thirty years.

 

By comparison Suicidal Tendencies were the complete opposite. The California thrash punk legends blazed through most of their self-title debut album (they didn’t play “I Want More”) completely annihilating the captive crowd with Mike running back and forth on stage, pumping his fists like a fucking lunatic off his meds. Naturally, with this much going on, one of the larger pits I’ve seen that day formed. Songs from “Fascist Pig” to “I Shot Reagan”were played with such ferocity that you forget singer Mike Muir is in his 50’s. The set ended with Mike bringing kids and adults on stage as he performed the classic “Institutionalized.”

The three-day Riot Fest experience was…good. Not great, but it didn’t suck either. There were some definite peaks and valleys in regards to the performances. Overall, I did enjoy it. Hopefully, they work out the kinks next year.

In the interim, please check out some images from a few of the other Day 3 acts, including Bad Religion, Beach Rats, Bouncing Souls and Alkaline Trio!

Alkaline Trio announce limited-edition “Past Live” release

Make a little extra space in your coffins, Alkaline Trio fans; there’s a pretty awesome limited edition release coming your way!

If you rewind the tape to 2014, you may recall, the Trio performed a series of shows in select cities around the country in which they took over a location and ran through their eight studio albums over the course of four separate nights. It was a pretty cool concept, especially since they played the albums in a different order depending on the city, so each show had its own unique qualities.

As it turns out, the band teamed up Audiotree during their four nights at the Metro in Chicago and captured the occasion in audio and video formats. At long last, those recordings are now going to be commercially available for the first time — BUT you’ve got to act quickly!

The collection consists of just about 100 songs spread across four nights and is known, rather obviously, as Past Live, and it exists in a variety of options. You’ll not only have the option to purchase the eight studio albums individually on vinyl format, but they’re available as a vinyl box set as well. Also available are a set of four Blu-Rays, exclusive printed posters and tote bags and T-shirts and more. The vinyl box bundle options are ONLY available — we repeat, THE VINYL BOX BUNDLE OPTIONS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE in a limited run pre-order that extends until February 9th. That gives you four weeks to scrape your pennies together, kids. Get your grubby paws on all available options right here!
